From Tom Moloughney.
I drive a 2021 Porsche Taycan RWD with the Performance Plus 94.3 kWh battery option (83.7 kWh usable) down to 0% state of charge to record a 0% to 100% DC fast charge session. The Taycan has an 800-volt battery system and is one of the fastest charging electric vehicles available today.
