Is Edmunds latest Tesla Model Y vs Porsche Taycan Range Test fair?


Interestingly, we talked about this very topic the other day and made some comments on the articles. Not specifically for Edmunds It’s a test of the Tesla Model Y and Porsche Taycan series, but it’s more about the idea that whenever something negative appears about a Tesla, it seems that hardcore fans want to punch holes in it right away. In fact, many of them are sending YouTuber Sam Alexander. “biased articles “to be destroyed on your YouTube channel.

It’s important to note that we don’t call Sam Alexander for coverage. You are entitled to your opinion and you may have some solid points as to why Edmunds The Y-model and Taycan range test is unfair or misleading. We always say that it is important to pay attention to both sides or more angles before reaching our own conclusion.

According to the EPA Edmunds incorrect, though we know that this is indeed not a fair statement without explanation. We also know that Taycan has a much longer range than the EPA estimate suggests. Moreover, we know that Tesla vehicles often achieve less range than their EPA rating. Since this information is readily available, it makes sense that Sándor wanted to delve into the details and figure this out.

That’s Sam’s first question Edmunds it compares a reasonably priced little electric crossover to a $ 100,000 “supercar.” It would have made a lot more sense Edmunds to compare the Taycan with Tesla’s super-long-range Model S luxury sedan. However, they didn’t, so that’s it. There is nothing misleading in comparing the two cars if you choose this. He also says the Y model is faster at 60 mph than the Porsche. Although surprising, it doesn’t matter here, and he acknowledges that.

While playing the video, Alexander goes into the arguments he finds more convincing. After reading Edmunds article, he immediately visited his website to find information on how to perform the standard EV domain test. Like us, he did not find any information. If anyone knows where the information is, please drop a link in the comment section. There is a 2013 article on testing the EV range, but we don’t know if it applies to the present.

The video goes on to talk about how Edmunds he says he has not filled Tesla at full capacity. If it had been, it would still have a range of about 25 miles. Tesla’s battery capacity reveals more to owners than competing EVs. Edmunds it also uses the limited 70 mph mode in Taycan, but never mentions the Tesla Chill mode.
