Porsche has presented the eagerly awaited all-electric, all-terrain Taycan Cross Turismo to the public via a virtual world premiere. Like the Taycan sports saloon, the new Cross Turismo benefits from the same innovative electric drivetrain and unique 800-volt architecture, but mates it to a new, high-tech chassis system with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension to ensure uncompromising dynamics on and off road.

The Taycan Cross Turismo closely resembles the Mission E Cross Turismo concept first seen at the Geneva Motor Show in 2018, with its silhouette still defined by the sporty rear roofline – referred to as the ‘flyline’ by Porsche’s designers. New off-road design elements include wheel arch trims, unique front and rear lower aprons and new side sills, while as part of the optional Off-Road Design package, the Cross Turismo also receives protective flaps on either side of the wheel housings.

Inside, the more versatile and practical Taycan Cross Turismo benefits from a useful 36 millimetres more headroom for rear-seat passengers and more than 1,200 litres of load capacity, accessed by a large new tailgate.

Four derivatives of the Taycan Cross Turismo will be available immediately from launch:

Taycan 4 Cross Turismo:

The Taycan 4 Cross Turismo with 280 kW (380 PS; CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 28.1 kwh/100 km), overboost power for Launch Control 350 kW (476 PS), acceleration 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds, top speed 220 km/h, range (WLTP) 389 – 456 km

Taycan 4S Cross Turismo:

The Taycan 4S Cross Turismo with 360 kW (490 PS; CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 28.1 kwh/100 km), overboost power with Launch Control 420 kW (571 PS), acceleration 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, top speed 240 km/h, range (WLTP) 388 – 452 km

Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo:

The Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo with 460 kW (625 PS; CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 28.7 kwh/100 km), overboost power with Launch Control 500 kW (680 PS), acceleration 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds, top speed 250 km/h, range (WLTP) 395 – 452 km

Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo:

The Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo with 460 kW (625 PS; CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 29.4 kwh/100 km), overboost power with Launch Control 560 kW (761 PS), acceleration 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, top speed 250 km/h, range (WLTP) 388 – 419 km.

All cars also now feature a new ‘Gravel Mode’ designed to improve the suitability of the Cross Turismo for driving on rough roads, while the optional Off-Road package increases ground clearance by up to 30 mm for even more demanding terrain.

Helping customer take their all-electric adventures further still, Porsche has even developed a rear bike carrier for the Cross Turismo which can hold up to three full-sized e-bikes, two high-quality versions of which – the eBike Sport and the eBike Cross – were launched in tandem with the new cross utility vehicle.

“In 2019, we sent out a key signal with the debut of our first all-electric sports car,” said Oliver Blume Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, at the world premiere of the Cross Turismo. “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.”

Taycan 4 Cross Turismo: Combined consumption 28.1 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 0 g/km

Taycan 4S Cross Turismo: Combined consumption 28.1 kwh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 0 g/km

  • I want to see a bargain-basic version that can take on the Mustang Mach-E and beat it to a pulp in sales. Please.

  • I like the Taycan but this doesn’t really sit right with me despite me being a fan of wagons.

    It has the space of a regular hatchback and it’s less than coherent styling makes it a bit ugly in my eyes.

    If I really wanted an electric car the Audi e-tron RS is the car of the moment and looks awesome and would take it over a Taycan. You’d have to be narcissistic to buy this.

    • Counterpoint: we need this. If we say that SUVs are the bane of existence and EVs are, too, then an EV crossover is the ultimate anathema. At least with this car, we get an estate body that's lifted high enough to suit those who need ad want the...
