In a virtual world premiere, Porsche presented the Taycan Cross Turismo, an all-rounder electric sports car. The launch is part of the German carmaker’s plan to expand the product portfolio of its first all-electric sports car range.
The new car is similar to the original Taycan (their first-ever all-electric Porsche), but is more spacious and has a bigger trunk—47 mm more headroom for passengers in rear seat and more than 1,200 litre of load capacity.
Like the Taycan sports saloon, the Taycan Cross Turismo benefits from an innovative electric drive with 800-volt architecture It comes in three variants:
The Taycan 4 Cross Turismo: Comes with 380 PS (280 kW) engine, accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and has a top speed of 220 km/h.
The Taycan 4S Cross Turismo: Comes with 490 PS (360 kW) engine, accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and has a top speed 240 km/h.
The Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo: Comes with 625 PS (460 kW) engine, accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h.
The new high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension ensures uncompromising dynamics off-road. There’s an optional off-road design package, which increases the ground clearance by up to 30 mm. The standard Gravel Mode improves the suitability of the new model for driving on rough roads.
For Taycan Cross Turismo, Porsche has developed a rear carrier that can hold up to three bicycles, which sets the benchmark in terms of package size and handling. The carrier can hold different types of bikes. One of its innovative features is that the tailgate can be opened even when the rear carrier is loaded.
Oliver Blume Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, said, “We see ourselves as pioneers of sustainable mobility: by 2025, half of all the new vehicles we will deliver will have an electrified drive – either fully electric or plug-in hybrid. The future belongs to electric mobility and with the Taycan Cross Turismo, we’re taking another major step in this direction.”
