New models - Porsche - Taycan - Cross Turismo

Porsche details Taycan Cross Turismo, here Q3

Priced from $201,000 + ORCs, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is a new niche

5 Mar 2021

JUST a few weeks after its initial confirmation, Porsche has revealed its new Taycan Cross Turismo, a more versatile wagon/SUV version of its all-electric Taycan sportscar headed Down Under in the third quarter of this year.

 

Set to be offered in both 4S and Turbo guises, the Taycan Cross Turismo will arrive in Australia priced from $201,000 plus on-road costs for the 4S and top out at $271,200 for the Turbo (before options), meaning the high-riders carry a $10,600 and $2100 price premium over their standard counterparts.

 

That isn’t the end of the story however, because the because the 4S Cross Turismo will be delivered as standard with the bigger 93.4kWh ‘Performance Battery Plus’ – an $11,590 option on the regular 4S – meaning it will actually undercut its sports sedan equivalent by $990.

 

Peak power in the 4S is rated at 360kW however that figure can be temporarily increased to 420kW on overboost.

 

No torque figure has been confirmed as yet however we expect it to at least match that of regular 4S (640Nm).

 

Nevertheless, the sprint from 0-100km/h is completed in a claimed 4.1 seconds while the top speed is pegged at 240km/h.

 

Predictably the Turbo ups the ante in all measures, developing 460kW (500kW on overboost) and slashing the 0-100km/h time to just 3.3s on its way to a 250km/h v-max.

 

As previously reported by GoAuto, the most notable difference between the Taycan and the Cross Turismo is the latter’s wagon-esque body style inspired by the Mission E Cross Turismo concept of 2018, which reportedly liberates an extra 47mm of rear headroom.

 

Brandishing all of the familiar Taycan styling cues save for that unique silhouette, all Cross Turismos ride on adaptive air suspension and can be had with an optional ‘Off-Road Design Package’ which raises the ride height by an extra 30mm and adds some extra body cladding around the wheelarches and bumper extremities.

 

To help it live up to its more versatile aspirations, all variants come with an extra ‘gravel’ driving mode in addition to the regular Taycan’s range, normal, sport, sport plus and individual modes.

 

According to Porsche AG executive board chairman Oliver Blume, the future of mobility is electric with the Taycan Cross Turismo serving as the brand’s next “major step” in that direction.

 

“In 2019, we sent out a key signal with the debut of our first all-electric sportscar,” he said.

 

“We see ourselves as pioneers of sustainable mobility: by 2025, half of all the new vehicles we will deliver will have an electrified drive – either fully electric or plug-in hybrid.

 

“The future belongs to electric mobility. With the Taycan Cross Turismo, we’re taking another major step in this direction.”

 

Exact variant specifications in terms of standard equipment will be revealed closer to the local launch however it would be safe to assume the Cross Turismos’ kit list will largely mirror that of regular Taycan.

 

One confirmed piece of equipment exclusive to the new offerings however is a bespoke bike rack developed in-house which has been both aerodynamically and structurally optimised to match the Taycan Cross Turismo’s design.

 

Porsche has had a successful start to the year in Australia, having shifted 793 new vehicles through January and February – 18 more than it managed over the same period last year – with the mid-sized Macan SUV accounting for the majority of the volume (428).
