You may be vacillating between purchasing the Porsche Taycan or the Tesla Model Y for your first — or perhaps next — all-electric vehicle. On paper, it looks like the Model Y beats out the Taycan. But how do they truly perform under real-life conditions? As you’ve probably heard, your mileage may vary depending on different factors and variables compared to the EPA estimate. Typically, this refers to gas-powered vehicles, but it also applies to electric vehicles.

According to Edmunds.com, they found that the variance is even greater with EVs. They created their own standardized real-world test to “provide an additional data point for comparison.”

In tests run by Edmunds, the 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S crushed the competition, the 2020 Tesla Model Y.
