Porsche proudly presents its newest addition to the Taycan line-up, introducing the tranquil Taycan Cross Turismo. Building on the proven strengths of the award-winning, all-electric Taycan sports saloon, such as superior performance and long range, the all-wheel drive, the five-door Cross Turismo now offers even greater versatility that makes the car a true all-rounder. Porsche continues to expand the Taycan portfolio, its first all-electric model range, and maintains the systematic pursuit of its path towards sustainable mobility.
Like the Taycan, the Cross Turismo benefits from an innovative electric drive with 800-volt architecture. The new high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension also ensures confident handling and control off the beaten track. Add 47mm more headroom for rear seat passengers and over 1,200 litres of luggage capacity, accessed through the large rear tailgate, and the Cross Turismo is ready for an adventure.
Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG said: In 2019, we sent out a key signal with the debut of our first all-electric sports car at the world premiere of the new Taycan derivative today. 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. In 2020, one in three of all vehicles we delivered in Europe had an electric powertrain. The future belongs to electric mobility. With the Taycan Cross Turismo, we’re taking another major step in this direction.
The all-wheel drive chassis featuring Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) electronic damper control plus three-chamber adaptive air suspension is familiar from the Taycan saloon; this is standard on every Cross Turismo. This repertoire can be extended with an optional Off-Road Design Package that increases ground clearance by a further 10 mm, for a total of 30 mm versus the saloon. In this guise, the Cross Turismo can cover a variety of mixed surfaces and uneven tracks. The standard “Gravel Mode” helps here, by optimising control precision on gravel or muddy roads by adapting the chassis, traction and throttle systems.
In its exterior styling, the Taycan Cross Turismo closely follows that of the Mission E Cross Turismo concept study presented at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Its silhouette is defined by the sporting roofline sloping downward to the rear – called a “flyline” by the Porsche designers. Off-road design elements include wheel arch trims, unique front and rear lower aprons and side sills. As part of the Off-Road Design Package, the Cross Turismo has special vanes at the corners of the front and rear bumpers and at the ends of the sills. These make for a striking exterior appearance as well as providing protection from stone impacts.
