Porsche sent its Taycan EV cross-country to claim a 'charging time' record

2578 Views 15 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  cwerdna
A standard 2021 Porsche Taycan has broken the Guinness World Record for the shortest charging time to cross the United States in an electric vehicle. It only needed a cumulative charge time of 2 hours, 26 minutes and 48 seconds to cover a 2,834.5-mile drive from Los Angeles to New York.

While the record it broke is highly specific, there was a previous holder: A Kia EV6, which had to be charged for 7 hours, 10 minutes and 1 second to make a similar, but just slightly longer, trip from New York to LA.

So, at a speed of 40 mph, the whole 2,834.5 miles took a total of 70.86 hours. Adding the 2.25 hours of charging, the total sums up to a little over 73 hours. Considering he drove 12 hours a day, this means a 6 days trip. I wonder what did he do during sleep ?
