The disappointing EPA test results

The new Porsche Taycan has been rated by the EPA and the numbers are not looking great. The rating is for the Taycan Turbo S and the range only came out to about 192 miles in the tests conducted by the EPA. Porsche took it upon themselves to hire a third party testing company and those results far surpassed the EPA’s numbers. The test conducted by Porsche showed that the car has a range of up to 278 miles.

Technology has accelerated at a fast pace in the last few years and the automotive industry has been no exception. There are certain things that come standard in vehicles today, however, there are some updated technologies that cannot be overlooked when it comes to purchasing a new 2020 car. Apple CarPlay, automated emergency braking systems, blind spot warning systems, teen driver technologies and keyless entry and pushbutton starts are just some of the features that will be available in most models for 2020.
