An article that just surfaced on Inside EV's claims that the Taycan will have an optional heat pump. This will significantly reduce the amount of energy that is consumed when heating or cooling the car, reducing the overall range loss. There is no mention of whether this feature will be limited by region. https://insideevs.com/porsche-taycan-90-kwh-battery-optional-heat-pump/

the amount of charging stations I see projected to launch in time for the Taycan's arrival greatly reduce my concerns for range loss

Nissan was the first company to use a heat pump in a mass production EV (Leaf), though I don't know how much of an improvement it makes in the winter months. Your driving style is going to be a much larger factor imo.

actually your planning is what it comes down to with all the options we have and how it varies by location

There is little that can be done about the range loss that occurs with extreme temperatures. But now that most EV's are well above 200 miles a charge, that's going to become a non issue for daily use. We also don't know that much about battery recuperation on the Taycan yet.
