The powertrain too comes as upgraded with a slight range boost on a dual motor setup. The front motor has been de-energised to cut parasitic losses in Normal and Range driving modes, claims the automaker. It is also expected to come with improved charging times thanks to faster battery pre-conditioning and the ability of the battery to withstand higher temperatures.

The changes are not only limited to the new facelifted version of the Taycan. The outgoing model too will receive some software upgrades through OTA updates.
