IMO the range for these EVs will be in the low 200 range.
Tesla is the standard for range but it comes at a cost, including cars catching on fire, premature battery degradation.
Batteries are from Panasonic that they are now working with Toyota.
Tesla has a different business model compared to other OEMs. Make the quarterly #s by any means, raise $ based on the #s, worry about risk later down the road or in court, who cares about profits.

Eeeeeewwwww! $104k - $185k for 200 miles of range. Nice look and performance, but like Audi, fail on the range. (And yes, wish I-Pace efficiency / range were better too.)

To be fair I don’t think anything about that car was designed for range. It makes the base model kind of pointless imho, so you end up paying a lot for turbo/turbo s the performance aspects. But definitely not paying for good range.

The Taycan is an impressive feat of marketing. It's a very big, very heavy car with low range.. yet it's insanely hyped. I was one of the first on the waitlist here and have followed it extensively. The interesting thing was the evolution of the car from Porsche. At first it was a relatively affordable, long range, driver focused competition for Tesla. Then it switched to focusing on the charging speed. Then, and now, it's almost solely about the 0-60 time. Hence why I cancelled my deposit and got an iPace.

I really don't think it's a good car. I also think it's just as glitchy as the iPace, you can see a lot of problems popping up in the more in depth videos.

I just don't get it. If it's intended to be a super sporty, around town car.. it should be smaller. It's not like it has a bunch of storage, the trunk is very small.

I say all of this as I plan on going right back to Porsche, just not in a Taycan.

I wonder performing the EPA test during winter has something to do with it.but something is not right. If you look at Alex on autos youtube test of bunch of EVs cars real life range you will see M3 range is a lot lower than EPA. While all others were very close. That tells me EPA testing has a loop hole.

I like the CD tests at 75mph. Realistic, real world.

EPA testing is not done outdoors, but in a controlled environment using a dynamometer.

The EPA testing is almost never accurate for what people really get.
