The Porsche Taycan Rear Wheel Drive ($115,680 USD as specced, UNAVAILABLE in Canada) is the newest EV in the Porsche lineup. This example has been optioned with the longer-range Performance Battery Plus, which extends its range from 431 to 484 kilometres. Thomas and James take it out for a quick review to see what it is all about.

What separates Active Driving Assist from plain old adaptive cruise control is a more sophisticated sensor suite that involves cameras that inform the various other ADAS systems, as well as three forward-looking and two-rear-facing radar units. The system also uses a predictive algorithm to infer the intended direction of travel and to keep the vehicle centered in the lane. But in 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L models equipped with the feature, you'll have to keep a hand on the wheel.

Also, what about that color? Is it called 'PIMP PINK'?!
