Taycan Cross Turismo: room for adventure
Flat front, muscularly curved wings, and a roofline that slopes down towards the rear—even at first glance, the design of the new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo bears the DNA of the iconic 911.
As the brand’s first Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV), the five-door combines classic Porsche driving dynamics with an off-road-capable high-tech chassis. “The Cross Turismo is the perfect complement to our existing Taycan family,” explains Stefan Weckbach, head of the model range.
A spirit of adventure in every detail of the Cross Turismo
A spirit of adventure is to be found in every detail of the Cross Turismo. Behind the large tailgate, the Cross Turismo holds almost 1,200 liters of luggage when the rear seatbacks are folded down. The vehicle also offers all-wheel drive, air suspension, and Performance Battery Plus as standard (Taycan Cross Turismo Models: CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 29.4 – 28.1 kWh/100 km).
Porsche presents new eBikes
orsche is expanding its range of e-mobility products and introducing two new eBikes to the market. “We want to attract people who are looking for a versatile and fully electric companion for everyday life, but also for travel and leisure adventures,” says Weckbach, head of the Taycan model range.
The pace of development was rapid
Porsche presented the Mission E Cross Turismo design study for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in spring 2018. The response was very good, and so the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG decided in October 2018 to go ahead with series production—at a time when the Taycan sports sedan was also still in development. This is a clear indicator of the focus with which the sports-car manufacturer is driving electrification forward.
In terms of length and width, the Cross Turismo corresponds to the sports sedan and can also rival its performance data: from a standstill it catapults forwards, accelerating up to 1.2 times faster than the force of gravity. The all-wheel-drive sports car sprints from zero to one hundred kilometers per hour in 3.0 seconds. The ranges are based on the values of the sports sedan.
A special distinguishing feature of the Taycan family is also found in the Cross Turismo: the seven letters of the brand logo are emblazoned directly below the light strip at the rear—designed three-dimensionally in glass and illuminated.
