Taycan Cross Turismo .. the new electric Porsche sedan

Revealed a company Porsche unveiled the Taycan Cross Turismo that was originally introduced in concept form in 2018, and is scheduled for release this summer.

The car is a copy of the first electric Porsche Taycan with a rear hatch, more interior space, greater ground clearance and off-road options.

The new Taycan Cross Turismo starts at $ 90,900, and like the regular Taycan, there are four different versions with an increase in price and performance:

  • Taycan 4 Cross Turismo: 280 kW (380 hp), increased launch control 350 kW (476 hp), acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.1 seconds, top speed of 220 km / h, range between 389 and 456 kilometer.
  • Taycan 4S Cross Turismo: 360 kW (490 hp), increased launch control power 420 kW (571 hp), acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds, top speed of 240 km / h, range between 388 and 452 kilometer.
  • Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo: 460 kW (625 hp), increased launch control power of 500 kW (680 hp), acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.3 seconds, top speed of 250 km / h, range between 395 and 452 kilometer.
  • Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo: 460 kW (625 hp), increased launch control power 560 kW (761 hp), acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds, top speed of 250 km / h, range between 388 and 419 km.

And unlike the regular Taycan, all four versions of the Taycan Cross Turismo come with a 93.4 kW Porsche battery pack, twin engines, and four-wheel drive.

The Cross Turismo offers up to 10 mm of extra headroom in the front seat and 92 mm more in the rear seat than the Taycan sedan.

There is more space everywhere thanks to the hatch and the Cross Turismo is about half an inch longer and about an inch longer than the sedan.

This results in a few more cubic feet of storage in Cross Turismo as well, although the front box is still the same size.

The Cross Turismo won’t be an off-road vehicle, like the upcoming Rivian truck or Hummer EV, although Porsche wants to make buyers feel like they can handle some rough terrain.

All four Cross Turismo versions come with an adaptive air suspension, which can be used to quickly raise the car’s height off the ground by 10 millimeters in Gravel mode.

Switching to this mode also increases traction control, stability and torque management to make driving easier through soft surfaces like: mud, sand and gravel.

Nor does it sacrifice the amenities or typical Porsche features, like wireless Apple CarPlay, or the same kinds of upgrades found in the Taycan sedan, such as: adaptive cruise control and lane keeping, head-up display, adjustable massage seats, Bose and Burmester audio systems.

“We are expanding our range of fully electric sports cars with the addition of this off-road version, thus continuing the systematic pursuit of our march towards sustainable mobility,” the company said.
