Nadim and his MotorShow team took the 2023 Porsche Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo for a comprehensive drive in Dubai.

 

 

Porsche is expanding the product portfolio of its first all-electric sports car range with the addition of the versatile Taycan Cross Turismo version, thereby continuing the systematic pursuit of its path towards sustainable mobility. Like the Taycan sports saloon, the Taycan Cross Turismo benefits from an innovative electric drive with 800-volt architecture.

 

 

The new high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension also ensures uncompromising dynamics off-road. With 47 millimetres more headroom for rear-seat passengers and up to 1,212 litres of load capacity, loaded via a large tailgate at the rear, the Cross Turismo is a true all-rounder.

 

 

“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 new, even more versatile derivative. “We see ourselves as pioneers of sustainable mobility: by 2025, half of all the new vehicles we 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.”

 

 

Full Cross Turismo range right from the start

Four derivatives of the Taycan Cross Turismo were available immediately from launch. The Performance Battery Plus with a total capacity of 93.4 kWh is always fitted as standard. The model range comprises the following:

  • The Taycan 4 Cross Turismo with 280 kW (375 HP), overboost power for Launch Control 350 kW (470 HP), acceleration 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds, top speed 220 km/h, power consumption (WLTP, combined) 26.4 – 22.4 kWh/100 km, range (WLTP) 389 – 456 km
  • The Taycan 4S Cross Turismo with 360 kW (485 HP), overboost power for Launch Control 420 kW (565 HP), acceleration 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, top speed 240 km/h, power consumption (WLTP, combined) 26.4 – 22.6 kWh/100 km, range (WLTP) 388 – 452 km
  • The Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo with 460 kW (625 HP), overboost power for Launch Control 500 kW (680 HP), acceleration 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds, top speed 250 km/h, power consumption (WLTP, combined) 25.9 – 22.6 kWh/100 km, range (WLTP) 395 – 452 km
  • The Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo with 460 kW (620 HP), overboost power for Launch Control 560 kW (751 HP), acceleration 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, top speed 250 km/h, power consumption (WLTP, combined) 26.4 – 24.4 kWh/100 km, range (WLTP) 388 – 419 km.

The high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension comes as standard on all four models. The optional Off-Road Design package increases ground clearance by up to 30 mm. This means that the Cross Turismo can also be driven on mixed surfaces and uneven tracks. The standard Gravel Mode improves suitability for driving on rough roads.

 

 

The four variants of the Taycan Cross Turismo at a glance

In terms of its visual appearance, the Taycan Cross Turismo (length/width/height: 4,974/1,967/1,409 mm*) closely follows the Mission E Cross Turismo concept study presented at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show: Its silhouette is defined by the sporty roofline sloping downward to the rear – called the flyline by Porsche designers. Off-road design elements include wheel arch trims, unique front and rear lower aprons and side sills. As part of 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 and provide protection from stone impacts.

 

 
Sporty accessories: new rear carrier and e-bikes

Especially for the Taycan Cross Turismo, Porsche has developed a rear carrier for up to three bicycles that sets the benchmark for packaging and usability. It can be used universally for different types of bikes. One of its innovative features is that the tailgate can be opened even when the rear carrier is loaded. With the eBike Sport and the eBike Cross, Porsche is launching two high-quality e-bikes at the same time. Thanks to their timeless design as well as powerful and sustainable drive technology, they are perfectly matched to the Taycan Cross Turismo.
