AMCI Testing Certification Overview

AMCI Testing’s Certification protocol is based on the statistical imperative for unbiased, repeatable results:
  • Both the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S were driven over two specific routes: AMCI Testing’s Certified City/Highway Route (commute-driving simulation in Normal Mode) and AMCI Testing’s Real-World City Route (city-driving simulation in Range Mode)
  • All driving was done during weekdays at the same time of day
  • Each vehicle began every test cycle with its state-of-charge (SOC) indicator at 100%
  • Each was operated on course until it entered its restricted-power “limp home” mode—which was considered the vehicle’s terminal mileage for battery depletion
  • All accessory loads were held consistent during each testing cycle and headlights were set to “Auto”
Specific to the AMCI Testing City/Highway Route:
  • Both the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S were operated in Normal Mode with Regen set to “Auto” and HVAC to “ECO”
  • Driving was precisely coordinated at the speed of traffic up to and including the legal speed limit during city driving, and up to 5 MPH over the legal limit on highways
Specific to the AMCI Testing City Route:
  • Both the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S were operated in Range Mode with Regen set to “On” and HVAC to “Off”
  • Driving was precisely coordinated at the speed of traffic up to and including the legal speed limit
