AMCI Testing Responds to MotorTrend Calling Their Real World Range Testing of the Porsche Taycan A "Guesstimation"

LOS ANGELES, March 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- AMCI responds to MotorTrend's assertions that its EV-range protocols and results are more accurate than theirs.  As a service to fact-minded readers, automotive consumers, and Porsche, the company looks to set the record straight.

All Testing Is Not Created Equal
In the recent MotorTrend story they cite AMCI Testing's Certified range results for Porsche's Taycan before countering with the phrase, "Now it's our turn, and MotorTrend does it with proper instrumentation, not guesstimation."  Here are the facts related to AMCI Testing's Certified protocol (and how it compares to that of MotorTrend):

Please click here for AMCI Testing's full protocol and results.

In short, Certified real-world testing requires significant resources, proven repeatability, and detailed protocols designed to anticipate and address every significant variable.  MotorTrend actually did a fine job given the time and budget constraints of an editorial publication.  But those constraints can and will introduce inaccuracies.  In this case, AMCI Testing's much-more-extensive test procedures repeatedly resulted in an additional 24 miles or 9% greater range than the findings in MotorTrend's extrapolative tests.
