Porsche Unveils New Taycan Cross Turismo: World's First Electric Wagon

World Premiere of the Cross Turismo: the all-rounder among electric sports cars
Quote:
Originally Posted by Porsche
The Taycan Cross Turismo draws on the strengths of its sport sedan sibling. This means that it shares its focus on performance, on providing a sure-footed, fun and exciting driving experience as well as refinement and comfort when required while defining its own place in the market, as every Porsche strives to do. The Taycan Cross Turismo adds to this mix with increased ground clearance and cargo capacity, making it more adept when the conditions are challenging and more versatile, yet it still remains a Porsche at its core.

The similarities
The crossover version will launch with four variants: the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo, Taycan 4S Cross Turismo, Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo, and Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo. All variants of the Cross Turismo will feature dual-motor all-wheel drive, two-speed rear transmission, Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management in conjunction with air suspension, Performance Battery Plus and its 800-volt battery architecture, adaptive aerodynamics, panoramic glass roof, and Porsche's PCM system that puts navigation, entertainment, and charging systems, right at your fingertips.

Also crossing over from the sedan will be the myriad of color, interior, trim, as well as a Cross Turismo specific items such as the Off Road Design Package and 20-inch Off Road Design and 21-inch Cross Turismo Design wheels.

All told, the eight-member Taycan family can be ordered in over 21,000 combinations based solely on variant, wheel choice, exterior color, and interior selection. Dig deeper into the Porsche Configurator, and details like deviated stitching, seat type, and technology options, such as Porsche InnoDrive incl. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Active Lane Keep (ALK) or Active Parking Support, gives a high level of customization to make the car perfectly fit nearly any lifestyle.

The differences
Starting from the side profile, the Taycan Cross Turismo features a longer, flatter roofline compared to its sedan counterpart. This provides front seat occupants with 0.35 inches and rear seat occupants with 3.62 inches of additional headroom. The cargo space is larger too, with up to 15.7 cubic feet for the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo and Taycan 4S Cross Turismo, and 14.3 cubic feet for the Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo and Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo. And like the sedan, the rear seats can fold forward to create even more space, up to 42.8 cubic feet. Of course, the front trunk of 2.9 cubic feet remains. For larger or bulkier items, a roof transport system that integrates into the standard roof rails is available from the factory, and an additional a rear mounted bike rack is also available via Tequipment.

The fender extensions, unique rocker panels, front and rear fascia, as well as a 20 millimeter (0.78 inches) higher ride height further differentiates the Taycan Cross Turismo from its sedan counterpart. The additional ride height allows for easier ingress and egress into the cabin, as well as the ability to clear taller obstacles without touching the underbody. The standard air suspension allows drivers to further raise the ride for greater clearance. The Off Road Design Package adds additional body cladding and raises the ride height an additional 10 millimeters (0.39 inches).

The capabilities
Though not designed as a rock crawling off-roader, all Taycan Cross Turismo variants feature a Gravel mode that simultaneously increases the ride height an additional 10 millimeters, sets the suspension firmness, traction and stability control, as well as the torque management system, to maximize grip over loose surfaces, like mud, sand, and gravel. Combined with additional body cladding to minimize errant rock chips to the body, the Taycan Cross Turismo is just as effective on rough surfaces as it is on the asphalt.

On more sure-footed roads, the Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo can accelerate from a stop to 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds, just 0.1 seconds slower than its sedan counterpart. The Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo can make the sprint to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, while the Taycan 4S Cross Turismo and Taycan 4 Cross Turismo can get to 60 mph in 3.9 and 4.8 seconds respectively.

Inside the car, the Taycan Cross Turismo features three years of Porsche Connect that includes wireless Apple CarPlay, Function on Demand, Plug and Charge capabilities, Apple Music, over the air updates. Additionally three-years of free Electrify America charging is also included as standard. Additional optional equipment such as Porsche InnoDrive including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Active Lane Keep (ALK), , Head Up Display, 14-way seats with massage functionality, Bose and Burmester audio systems, and multiple exterior colors and interior trims are available to choose from- all in a Porsche typical sports car drive train layout.

The eBike
To complement the Taycan Cross Turismo, Porsche is launching two electric bicycles. The Porsche eBike Sport is street-oriented and features a full-suspension carbon-fiber frame, Magura brakes, Shimano drivetrain, and Supernova lighting. Suspension duties are handled by a Fox shock in the rear, and a Magura upside-down fork at the front.

For riders that prefer to get dirty, the Porsche eBike Cross features Magura MT brakes, hydraulically adjustable Crankbrothers seat post for quick seat height changes, and a Shimano trip computer. Both bikes ride on carbon wheels inspired by the roofline of the Taycan, will come in three sizes and be available by spring of 2021 through your Porsche dealer.

Pricing and Availability
The Taycan Cross Turismo models start at $90,900, not including the $1,350 delivery, processing and handling fee. Comparing a Taycan 4 Cross Turismo to a comparably equipped Taycan sedan the additional standard equipment; Performance Battery Plus, adaptive air suspension including PASM, fixed panoramic roof in glass, the difference in cost is $1,530. This is more than made up by the addition of all-wheel drive, taller ride height, revised fascias and sideskirts, improved passenger headroom, and greater cargo and interior space as standard equipment. The Taycan Cross Turismo is expected to arrive at U.S. dealerships in summer 2021. EPA range figures will be announced closer to market launch.

What a beauty. Looks good without the roof rails. Knowing Porsche is probably a 12K option, plus an extra 2K if you want it body colored.

Gives off Aston Martin Zagato vibes too. I think that's why I really like it.

Looks nice except for the plastic wheel arches.

I didn't read or watch. Does it have a raise/lower (air) suspension?

Agree, cladding on a Porsche is a big no for me, I noticed that they painted it black/gray on the green one, but I am hoping the cladding can be painted body color (like the A4 Allroad).

Yes, adaptive Air Suspension is available.

According to Remove Before Race (Mr. AMG) a regular Sport Turismo variant is on the way, although US availability is unconfirmed at the moment.

In all honesty, this one is not much of a "wagon". More like hatchback.

Two door versions are coming in the form of the 718 Cayman and Boxster. Porsche has confirmed that the next 718 will be all electric, as will be the next Macan.

Interesting, and quite a risky strategy.

Im sure that will look hot but I dont see pcar fans buying into it.... For me, sound is 50% the experience of a sports car/sedan and I have no desire for anything less. I couldnt care less about instant torque, without the roar of the engine thru the powertrain and out the exhaust, it really doesnt matter the performance....the sound is what makes driving fun to me.

Maybe this is how Porsche gets rid of the 718 because who is buying a silent sportscar??

Love it. Very nice design (I like the Panamera Sport Turismo as well so I knew I would like this look).

Agree, Porsche knows how to design a sexy (albeit not so practical) wagon, whether its the Panny or the Taycan. I'm surprised they are bringing this to the US though considering how poorly Panny ST's sell here and how long they sit on lots.

I'd rather have that than a 4 cylinder PHEV like what MB are doing with the next C63

I'd rather have the Flat-4 Boxster than an EV Boxster. One of the best aspects of Porsche sports cars is the transmission whether it be PDK or MT. Even though the Flat-4 was not as desirable of an engine, I still would prefer to have an engine which I can rev and a transmission to switch gears in my sports cars.

But of course I'll wait and see it Porsche can convince me towards an EV Sports Car with their future products.

Not very surprising, the Panny Sport Turismo is similar, with as much space as a Macan out back, but the benefit for this shape is mainly the packaging as well as the ability to transport larger/taller items rather than the sedan's smaller opening, as well as being able to transport pets in the hatch without needing to go to an SUV. Its definitely a niche product.

this is all correct, but RS6 features a 20 ft³ (565 l) boot while still looking sexy. E63s wagon even 640 l while looking slightly less sexy. RS6 sounds like the best compromise between looks and practicality.
