The Taycan interior is home to a total of 5 digital interfaces.
First is the touch display on the curved instrument cluster which is a rounded 16.8″ screen with 4 touch-enabled buttons on the either side although the cluster itself can be mostly operated by physical buttons on the steering wheel. Sitting adjacent to the cluster is a second central 10.9″ infotainment display which acts as the main hub for the vehicle’s onboard controls which includes Apple Music integration. A third 10.9 inch display sits on the passenger offering largely identical functionality to that of the centre console and available as an optional extra. Fourth is an 8.4″ touch panel with haptic feedback is located directly below the centre touchscreen and within the driver’s reach while the arm remains in a resting position. And fifth, a 5.9″ display is also available for rear-seat passengers to adjust climate control settings among other comfort functions.
The instrument cluster has four display modes:
Porsche opted to do away with traditional air-conditioning knobs and buttons with the Taycan, with the company opting to have the vehicle’s climate controls exclusively accessible through the 8.4″ touchscreen in the centre console.
Porsche noted that it opted to drastically reduce the buttons and knobs of the Taycan with its fully-customisable digital touchscreen displays. Apart from the multiple displays in the interior with 911-inspired digital gauges, Porsche also emphasised the use of a voice assistant to access the vehicle’s functions. Users of the vehicle could access this custom voice assistant by saying “Hey Porsche.”
