The all-rounder among electric sports cars
The new Taycan Cross Turismo features all the strengths of the Taycan, such as superior performance and long range. In addition, there is also more headroom for rear-seat passengers and a maximum luggage compartment capacity of more than 1,200 litres behind the large tailgate. The chassis with standard all-wheel drive and air suspension is height-adjustable. The Taycan Cross Turismo will be launched on the market in the summer of 2021. It is anticipated that the five largest markets for this Taycan version will be the US, the UK, Norway, the Netherlands and Germany.
Purist exterior design with Porsche DNA
The visual appearance of the Taycan Cross Turismo is closely based on the Mission E Cross Turismo concept study presented at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2018. In particular, its silhouette is defined by the sporty, falling roof line towards the rear – called the flyline by Porsche designers. The off-road design elements include wheel arch trims, unique lower aprons at the front and rear as well as the side sills. In combination with the Off-Road Design package, the Cross Turismo has special flaps at the corners of the front and rear bumpers and at the ends of the sills. These make for a striking exterior as well as providing protection from stone impacts. Like the Taycan sports saloon, the new Cross Turismo also features innovative elements such as the glass-effect Porsche lettering in the light bar.
Unique interior design with a wide display band
The highly praised design contours familiar from the Taycan sports saloon can be found in the interior: the wing-shaped upper and lower sections of the dashboard stretch across the entire width of the car. The free-standing, curved instrument cluster forms the highest point on the dashboard. A central 10.9-inch infotainment display and a further, optional front passenger display are combined to form an integrated glass band in a black-panel look. A compass is installed on the top of the dashboard in combination with the Off-Road Design package.
The Gravel mode driving programme
The Taycan Cross Turismo comes as standard with the additional Gravel mode driving programme for journeys on light off-road terrain such as gravel tracks or muddy road surfaces. In this mode, the ride height is raised by 30 millimetres compared with the saloon. Gravel mode also influences the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Traction Management (PTM), Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+) and Porsche Stability Management (PSM) chassis systems, as well as the rear-axle transmission. The shift operations of the latter are optimised to ensure maximum traction. The car’s throttle characteristics have also been designed specially for off-road driving in terms of power delivery and control precision.
Large battery with up to 800 volts as standard
The Taycan Cross Turismo operates with a system voltage of 800 volts (voltage range 610 V to 835 V) instead of the 400 V that is usual for electric cars. The standard two-deck Performance Battery Plus contains 33 cell modules consisting of 12 individual cells each (396 in total). The total capacity is 93.4 kWh.
Innovative drive motors and two-speed transmission
All Taycan Cross Turismo models have two electric motors, one fitted on the front axle and a second on the rear axle, and therefore have all-wheel drive as standard. Both the range and the continuous power of the drive benefit from the high efficiency of the permanently excited synchronous motors. The electric motor, transmission and pulse‑controlled inverter are each combined into a compact drive module. The possible recuperation power has been increased once more. At up to 290 kW, this is significantly higher than the recuperation power of competitors.
