In terms of intelligent charging functions, the updates include extended range of Charging Planner that makes it possible to set the charge level with which the Taycan is to reach the specified destination. The new battery-saving charging function allows reducing charging capacity from up to 270 kW to 200 kW if desired. This will result in lower battery temperature during charging and result in lower-impact charging but in a highly efficient process. Further, the 22 kW on-board AC charger will be available as a retro-fit option in selected markets by the end of the year.

Improvements on the navigation system include display of online information directly on the map as well as traffic information with lane-level precision. On connecting one' s Apple ID to the Taycan, customers can now use the Apple Podcasts and Apple Music Lyrics functions. iPhone apps will now be available in the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system via a wireless connection.
