This model is the automaker’s follow-up to the original Taycan sedan. Porsche is expanding the existing product portfolio of its first all-electric sportscar range with this off-road edition. Similar to the original, the Taycan Cross Turismo has an innovative electric drive that includes 800-volt architecture. With all-wheel drive and an adaptive air suspension, off-roading dynamics are not to be uncompromised.
Porsche shared a quote from Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, who 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. 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.”
The model features four variants including the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo, Taycan 4S Cross Turismo, Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo and Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo. All the models feature dual-motor all-wheel drive as well as a panoramic glass roof and an entertainment/navigation system. The Taycan Cross Turismo also includes Gravel mode which allows the card to increase the suitability for rough roads.
The Taycan Cross Turismo EV is set to arrive in American dealerships this summer 2021 and will come in the same colors as its sedan predecessor.
In case you missed it, Volvo introduced the all-electric C40 recharge.
