this burgundy beauty is the 2022 Porsche
0:14
tycon it’s Porsche’s first ever electric
0:17
vehicle is it any good
0:20
should you buy one let’s find out
0:23
[Music]
0:26
the whole world is going electric you
0:29
might say it’s inevitable if you still
0:32
need proof look no further than this
0:34
look it’s a Porsche Porsche the
0:37
Motorsports company they make super cars
0:39
they got big SUVs they got big sedans
0:42
but now they’re turning their attention
0:44
to EVS the problem that the ticon is
0:47
facing is the competition because the
0:50
stuff that’s out there is really good
0:52
the Audi e-tron GT is incredible and
0:55
then you’ve got the Lucid air then the
0:58
Mercedes eqs and then of course the
1:02
Tesla Model S the ticon really has its
1:06
work cut out for it however it does have
1:08
an ace up its sleeve it’s the badge on
1:11
the back and the crest up front it’s a
1:13
Porsche
1:15
let’s talk design because I think it’s
1:17
one of the taikon’s strongest selling
1:19
points this is a gorgeous vehicle full
1:22
stop all of Porsche’s design language
1:25
flows out of the 911. that’s just how it
1:27
is where’s the engine in a 911 it’s in
1:30
the rear right so since this has no
1:32
engine it doesn’t need cooling so little
1:34
tiny Grill down there so it tracks
1:36
design language wise with Porsche’s most
1:40
important icon signature Porsche
1:42
four-point headlights got to have that
1:44
really incredibly handsome no matter
1:46
where you look except for right here
1:48
this is the charging port it just looks
1:51
like an afterthought and it’s too bad
1:53
because otherwise I really dig the
1:54
design of this thing coming down the
1:56
side though fantastic this is one of the
1:59
best looking Silhouettes in the
2:00
automotive industry look at this
2:02
c-pillar pure classic Porsche this could
2:05
be on a 911 they nailed it coming out
2:08
back it’s just you know it’s a Porsche
2:10
you know it’s an EV because there’s no
2:11
tailpipes but it’s just lovely from
2:13
basically every single angle I think
2:16
this is one of the best looking
2:18
four-door vehicles of the last 25 years
2:20
and honestly maybe ever
2:23
[Music]
2:27
the Porsche ticon is the inside is it’s
2:30
okay unless you like screens man if you
2:32
like screens whoa do we have some
2:34
screens for you one two three four even
2:36
the passenger gets the screen it’s a bit
2:39
overwhelming for me now yes the
2:41
passenger screen can be turned off even
2:43
still it’s a lot visually you know
2:45
shining in your eyes it all works fine
2:47
it’s just I don’t know I wish there was
2:49
a bit more design to the interior as far
2:51
as the materials go pretty good they use
2:54
this cool uh fabric for the seat inserts
2:57
and also for the door cards here it’s
2:59
pretty nice you know it’s not full
3:00
leather you can obviously get full
3:02
leather it’s a Porsche you can get
3:03
whatever you want but the materials are
3:05
pretty good one thing I can’t stand this
3:07
is just true across the board with EVS
3:10
because I’m sitting on the batteries so
3:12
the roof doesn’t feel like it’s on my
3:14
head they put this glass roof here it’s
3:16
a cheat because look my head is this far
3:18
away
3:19
from this hard thing here comfortable
3:21
you know this feels like a Porsche seat
3:22
this is definitely a Porsche steering
3:24
wheel back seat is tight on this you
3:26
don’t have a lot of rear leg room put
3:27
the seats down you have some nice
3:29
storage space I guess again just back to
3:30
what I said at the beginning I wish the
3:32
interior of the tycon excited me as much
3:35
as the exterior
3:38
when it comes to the performance of the
3:40
Porsche ticon you might want to take a
3:42
seat because I have a lot to say this
3:46
icon there’s a small battery and a big
3:48
battery and with EVS if you have a
3:49
bigger battery you can suck more power
3:51
out of them the motor can spin faster so
3:53
with the small battery which is 79.2
3:56
kilowatt hours this is rated at like 302
3:59
horsepower with the larger battery which
4:01
this one has which is 93.4 kilowatt
4:05
hours we’re talking 350 horsepower and
4:08
250 pound-feet of torque unless you put
4:11
it into launch mode when you launch this
4:14
puppy it can go into this over boost
4:16
mode makes 469 horsepower and 263
4:21
pound-feet of torque but it can only do
4:23
that for 10 seconds you know so it is a
4:25
relatively quick car and it’s 60 miles
4:28
an hour in 4.7 seconds which sounds
4:31
really good until you realize that a
4:33
pole star 2 can do it quicker it should
4:36
a pull start ever be faster than a
4:38
Porsche I’d argue no and then there’s
4:41
the handling and people are really I
4:43
think they get lazy when they review
4:44
this car and they say oh it handles like
4:46
a Porsche well no it handles like a big
4:48
heavy Eevee with a Porsche badge on it
4:49
but on these tires rear wheel drive only
4:52
you know I set up for efficiency it’s
4:55
just okay and then of course we have the
4:58
problem the ticon is Infamous for this
5:00
with this size battery this is the big
5:02
battery remember it’s rated at 225 miles
5:05
of range you know yes the ticon it does
5:08
beat the EPA estimate it’s better than
5:10
you know what the government rates it at
5:12
but not by much so even if you know
5:14
they’ve resubmitted for 2022 they’re
5:16
trying to get a better rating but you
5:17
know if it’s 250 it’s still way behind
5:20
the competition
5:22
as far as safety goes we don’t know
5:25
nobody and I mean nobody has bothered to
5:28
crash test a Porsche tycon yet will they
5:31
well it’s been on the market for two
5:33
years so I don’t know as far as a
5:35
standard active safety features go the
5:38
list is surprisingly small on a vehicle
5:40
in this segment and again considering
5:43
who its competition is shouldn’t
5:45
adaptive cruise control be standard
5:49
and now the moment you’ve all been
5:52
waiting for how much let me preface this
5:55
part by saying Porsches are expensive
5:57
and big full-size electric sedans they
6:01
cost a lot of money all that said the
6:04
least amount you could spend on a
6:06
Porsche icon is 82 700 and that is the
6:11
base stripper model no options
6:13
whatsoever what about this car it’s got
6:15
some options glad you asked this one’s
6:17
over a hundred and twelve thousand
6:19
dollars as it sits what about the
6:21
competition okay the Tycoon is only
6:24
undercut base price to base price by one
6:26
competitor Lucid they make something
6:28
called the air pure and it starts at
6:30
over 77 000 the other competitors the
6:34
Mercedes starts at over 102 000 the
6:36
Audi’s over 103 and the least you could
6:38
spend on a Tesla Model S is a hundred
6:41
and four thousand dollars actually over
6:43
a hundred and four thousand dollars what
6:45
have we learned Vehicles like this it’s
6:47
gonna cost you
6:49
if there’s one thing that I want you to
6:52
know about the 2022 Porsche ticon it’s
6:56
that this thing is being held back by
6:58
its range look I like this thing a lot I
7:01
I love how it looks it’s stunning I like
7:04
how it drives it’s just that boy Porsha
7:06
was thinking about everything except for
7:09
efficiency whereas the competition they
7:12
humble it when it comes to range it’s
7:13
too bad again like the vehicle a lot but
7:17
for all that money I believe there are

7:19
better options out there for you to buy
