The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is widely regarded as a driver’s EV. The World Luxury Car and World Performance Car titles at the 2020 World Car Awards are proof. We are yet to experience the capabilities of the electric AMG but we expect it to come close.

In terms of size, the AMG EQS is larger than the Taycan Turbo S. This could be because the AMG EQS is a sporty derivative of the flagship EQS sedan while the Taycan is a purpose-built electric sports car built along the lines of the Panamera. The Mercedes sits taller than the Porsche with length and wheelbase too being notably larger. Predictably, the luxurious Merc is also the heavier of the two.

Both the Mercedes-AMG and the Porsche are similarly priced but the latter is more accessible (relatively speaking, of course). The Taycan Turbo S costs Rs 2.34 crore while the EQS 53 4MATIC+ will set you back by Rs 2.45 crore; both prices are ex-showroom.
