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. There is also more headroom for rear-seat passengers. Furthermore, it provides 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.
Purist exterior design with Porsche DNA
The new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo’s visual appearance is closely based on the Mission E Cross Turismo concept study. Porsche presented this at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2018. In particular, the sporty, falling roofline towards the rear defines its silhouette. Porsche designers named this the fly line.
The off-road design elements include wheel arch trims, unique lower aprons at the front and rear, and the side sills. In combination with the Off-Road Design package, the Cross Turismo has special flaps on the corners of the front and rear bumpers, as well as on the ends of the sills. These make for a striking exterior as well as protecting 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
One can find the highly praised design contours familiar from the Taycan sports saloon in the interior. The wing-shaped upper and lower sections of the dashboard stretch across the car’s entire width. 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 combine to form an integrated glass band in a black-panel look. The Off-Road Design package features a compass installed on the top of the dashboard.
Innovative chassis systems
The integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control analyses and synchronises all chassis systems in real-time. Porsche uses a centrally networked control system for the chassis of the Taycan Cross Turismo. Adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology, including the PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) electronic damper control system, is fitted as standard to all Taycan Cross Turismo models.
The air suspension includes a Smartlift function as standard. This allows the customer to easily programme the system so that the ride height is automatically raised at certain recurring locations such as road humps or garage driveways. Simply press the chassis button to store these positions.
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. This mode raises the ride height 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.
Optimised rear axle shift operations ensure maximum traction. The design of the car’s throttle characteristics, especially in terms of power delivery and control precision, is perfect for off-road driving.
Large battery with up to 800 volts as standard
The Taycan Cross Turismo operates with a system voltage of 800 volts 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.
Flexible upgrades after purchase with Functions on Demand (FoD)
Thanks to FoD, Taycan drivers can purchase various convenience and assist functions as required. What makes this approach special is that this option is also possible after the vehicle has been bought. Availability does not depend on the sports car’s original configuration. It is not necessary to visit a workshop, thanks to online activation. This is currently possible for the Porsche Intelligent Range Manager (PIRM), Power Steering Plus, Active Lane Keeping and Porsche InnoDrive.
Automatic chassis lowering for even better aerodynamics
Thanks to optimised airflow characteristics, the aerodynamic design, which boasts a Cd value from 0.26, makes a significant contribution to low energy consumption, and therefore to long-range. The measures relating to Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) include the adjustable air intakes at the front. At higher speeds, the frontal area and Cd value reduce as the Taycan Cross Turismo lowers in two stages. The rear features a fixed roof spoiler.
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. As a result, they have all-wheel drive as standard. Both the range and the drive’s continuous power benefit from the high efficiency of the permanently excited synchronous motors. The electric motor, transmission and pulse‑controlled inverter combine into a compact drive module. The possible recuperation power increases once more. At up to 290 kW, this is significantly higher than the recuperation power of competitors.
