Cost to charge a Porsche Taycan

At home: based on an average UK energy tariff of 14p/kWh, the cost of a full recharge of the 80kWh battery would be £11.20 (14p x 80).

Public Rapid: based on average 24p/kWh charge for use of rapid chargers in the UK, the cost of recharging from 20% to 80% would be £11.52 (24p x 80 x (80%-20%))

That said, energy tariffs may vary based on supplier and will be greatly different if you have any generation source at your home, e.g. a solar panel. Moreover, public rapid chargers are often at commercial premises and so prices are set by companies.

How far can you travel in a Porsche Taycan?

The official Taycan range is 252 miles based on a full tank and perfect fuel efficiency conditions. In reality, you are more likely to get 80% of the total range before needing to charge, so around 200 miles is more accurate.

Based on the above costs to charge, this means that cost per mile is 5.6p per mile (£11.20/200) for home charging and 5.8p (£11.52/200) for rapid charging.
