Porsche Taycan owners are getting range bump through software updates

Many Porsche Taycan owners are going to be happy to know that Porsche is making their vehicles more efficient through software updates resulting in range bumps.

As we reported back in July, the Porsche 2023 Taycan model year update was mostly focused on software improvements.

Several of these changes were related to the entertainment system in the electric vehicle, but there were also several software improvements to the powertrain and thermal management system that are making the 2023 Taycan more efficient.

Now the good news is that those software improvements are also coming to existing Taycan electric vehicles produced over the last three years.

The biggest range bump goes to the Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo, which now goes from 204 to 233 miles of range on a single charge – a 14% range increase through software improvements to the efficiency of the vehicle.

Most other range increases are between 3% and 7%, but there are a few other variants that are getting range increases of more than 10%.

Here’s a list of all the range bumps for all the different Taycan variants (via Drive Tesla Canada):

Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo204 mi/328 km233 mi/375 km14.2%
Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo202 mi/325 km222 mi/375 km9.9%

On top of the increase in efficiency, the software changes are also going to enable a faster-charging curve for Taycan electric vehicles.

While Porsche is talking about the update being delivered “over-the-air,” the press release about the update makes it sounds like owners will still have to bring their vehicles to the shop:

The update is free for customers, and can be carried out during a visit to a Porsche service workshop.

But it’s a minor inconvenience to get more efficiency out of your up to three-year-old electric car.
