Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo: Everything You Need to Know
The model that was first teased in 2018 at the Geneva Motor Show is now here
Over the years, Porsche has taught people to expect nothing but the best from the brand. Now, the brand has continued its legacy by teasing a new clip of its upcoming Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo that will be all-electric but will have a familiar 800-volt architecture that will be coupled with a multispeed transaxle as its four-door counterpart.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo was first teased in 2018 at the Geneva Motor Show. It is all-but-certain to retain the twin-motor set-up offered in the Porsche Taycan 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S sedan variants (which generates 390kW, 420kW and 560kW respectively). The same applies for the existing battery pack options, 79kWh and 93kWh, enabling real-world driving ranges between 365km and 420km.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is a more versatile and spacious car with new roof rails and a new roofline. It has a different rear design that allows it to have more space for passengers who sit in the second row. The company has also optimized the suspension system and enhanced the ground clearance. It also has a CUV (cross utility vehicle) specific driving mode that will likely help in boosting dynamics, stability, and performance on gravel roads.
Talking about Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, Stefan Weckbach, the Taycan, said this in the video “With the Taycan Cross Turismo, we wanted to offer a little bit more space, a little more flexibility and versatility. We developed a completely new roofline, fitted with roof rails, a more generous second row and a bigger trunk, all to make a car that is perfect for an active lifestyle. A car that is perfect for both an urban environment and the countryside.”
The statistics of the new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo will resemble those in the standard Porsche Taycan. The range of the vehicle would depend on the battery a customer chooses.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo
Australians will not have to wait long for the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. It will be launched internationally on March 4, 2021, and the deliveries will be expected sometime in 2022. The new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo prices are not confirmed yet, but it is estimated that it will cost about AUD 205,000 plus on-road costs. The entry-level 4S sedan costs AUD 190,400 plus on-road costs in Australia. So, if there is a rise of about AUD 15,000 for the wagon variant (like it happened with the Panamera line-up), Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo’s cost will be about AUD 205,000 plus on-road costs. Another car worth a look for car lovers in Australia is the new McLaren Artura. Have a look!
