2023 Model Year Software Updates Coming To All Porsche Taycan Models
Along with some hardware updates, Porsche Taycan owners can expect an improved software experience very soon
The Porsche brand has always been an instant hit wherever you find yourself in the world. Whether you want a sports car, an SUV or an electric vehicle, Porsche has just what you need. It’s no surprise then that the Porsche Taycan has sold over 75,000 units worldwide since its release in 2019.
Now Porsche has announced that all variants of the Porsche Taycan can expect a market-specific extensive software update along with some hardware updates very soon that will bring all Taycan models, regardless of age, engine and body to the 2023 model year status. These updates can be installed by visiting any Porsche workshop.
Aside from improvements to the powertrain efficiency, this update also indulges Porsche Taycan owners with better thermal management for the battery, new functions and improved usability to the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and Porsche Connect, now with integrated Spotify and wireless Android Auto.
On top of that, the driver assist system is updated to be more comprehensive in more situations and keyless opening will be added for the doors and tailgate otherwise called function on demand (FoD), along with an option to receive Over-the-air (OTA) updates.
Kevin Giek, vice president of the Taycan model line stated, “This campaign will allow our customers to benefit from the continuous further development of the Taycan. We have extensively optimised the model series in almost every respect since 2019,”
“New functions have been added and others have been revised or tweaked to further enhance the customer experience. Following this update, anyone driving a Taycan from early in the car’s production run will be pleasantly surprised by how much has developed on the vehicle side since then.” He added.
As for hardware, a new 22kW onboard charger has been made available for retrofitting which Porsche Taycan owners will have to pay for but all software updates will be installed for free. This onboard charger promises a substantially faster charge for your Taycan.
Porsche Taycan owners who opt to retrofit the 22kW onboard charger will also receive an activated Porsche Plug & Charge function, which is the simplest form of electric charging since it is a fully automated process that does not involve manually using a card or app to charge the vehicle.
With that said, would you now choose to buy a Porsche Taycan if you’re in the market for an electric sports car and your budget allows for it, or is this continuous development not enough to convince you of the Taycan over its competitors?
