Here in the Houston,Texas area on the Gulf Coast air conditioning is a must 9 months of the year. Are there any charts showing highway mileage per charge with and without the AC on or percentage of drain on the batteries? Thanks....

Interesting question. We don't technically know what the Taycan's official range is yet, so anything would be a guess at this point. I did some digging and found some info from Tesla on this.

Basically it looks like the AC impacts range by about 13 miles until you get over 100 degrees and then the impact is more severe.

Just be gad you don't have to deal with the cold... that's the real killer of range.

At 70 MPH in a Model S75:
With the A/C Off
Temp Range
70 241
90 244
110 253

With the A/C On:
Temp Range
70 228
90 230
110 216

Those figures are not as bad as I thought they would affect mileage. Then again heating inside a electric car may be even more of a battery drain. Heating, cooling and a bad ass stereo are battery drainage considerations. Luckily the newer LED headlights being produced do not pull as much power as the older headlights that create wasteful heat. Thanks....
