I totally agree. At this time I cannot recommend to anyone to purchase a Taycan. I love the car but these issues will erode that feeling quickly.
So I’m wondering what, if any EV, Professor B would recommend for someone who is in the market for a high-quality right now? Or does he recommend not buying any EV at all since not a single EV currently on the market is 100% perfect?
For me, while the Taycan isn’t 1000% perfect, it is an absolutely amazing vehicle which I truly enjoy driving each and every day. My satisfaction level is 99.9% and the 0.1% of dissatisfaction has nothing to do with the availability of service technicians.
I whole heartedly would recommend a Taycan to anyone who can afford the price tag (new or used).
At lesser price points there are 2 other EVs I would recommend- - the Genesis EV60 and the Hyundai IONIQ5.
I definitely would not recommend any of the Teslas or the Mustang Mach E.
I think the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq has the potential to be a very good EV and the just released new Chevy Bolt EUV could prove to be a great value priced EV if it’s new batteries are problem free.
