Porsche has expanded the product portfolio of its first all-electric sports car range with the addition of this versatile off-road version, continuing its pursuit towards sustainable mobility.
Like the Taycan sports saloon, the Taycan Cross Turismo benefits from an innovative electric drive with 800-volt architecture (Taycan Cross Turismo Models: CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 29.4 – 28.1 kwh/100 km). The new high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension also ensures uncompromising dynamics off-road. Thirty-six millimetres more headroom for rear-seat passengers and more than 1,200 litres of load capacity, loaded through the large tailgate at the rear, make the Cross Turismo a true all-rounder.
The Taycan Cross Turismo has been through Porsche's extensive testing programme which has taken place on race tracks such as the Nürburgring Nordschleife and the Grand Prix track in Hockenheim as well as on testing grounds worldwide – including in the southern Italian town of Nardò. The Cross Turismo has also been tested off the beaten track in the south of France and the Pyrenees, while the testing grounds at the Weissach Development Centre offered a further off-road challenge outside of Africa with the ‘Safari’ track. Having completed a total of 998,361 testing kilometres, the Cross Turismo prototypes had circumnavigated the globe almost 25 times – measured at the equator.
At Porsche, electric cars have to undergo the same rigorous testing programme as sports cars with combustion engines. In addition to displaying superior performance, this always includes proving unrestricted everyday usability in all climatic conditions. Particularly demanding tasks such as charging the battery, or controlling the temperatures of the powertrain and interior under extreme temperatures, are additional aspects that are tested in the battery-powered electric models. Other development goals typical for Porsche include race track performance, the ability to perform repeated acceleration runs at full throttle, and a range suitable for everyday use.
*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
