Porsche expands Taycan line with Cross Turismo offering
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is powered with a system voltage of 800 volts (voltage range 610V to 835V), which it shares with the Taycan sports saloon, instead of the 400V found in many electric cars.
The newest member of the electrified range from Porsche wears a high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension to ensure uncompromising dynamics off-road. It also has a Gravel mode driving program wherein the ride height is raised by 30 millimeters (mm) compared to the saloon kind for the light off-road terrains.
It also has 11 kW of alternating current (AC) as standard so that Taycan Cross Turismo owners can charge their vehicles at home and an on-board charger with a capacity of 22 kW is available as optional equipment. While driving, Taycan Cross Turismo can charge itself via temperature management strategy for the battery.
The Taycan Cross Turismo stands 4,974 mmm long, 1,964 wide, and 1,409 mm tall; which is near the Mission E Cross Turismo concept study revealed at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
For its aesthetics, the Taycan Cross Turismo’s silhouette has a sporty roofline sloping downward to the rear (flyline). Other notable elements include wheel arch trims, unique front and rear lower aprons and side sills.
Going together with the Off-Road Design package, the Cross Turismo has special flaps at the corners of the front and rear bumpers and at the ends of the sills.

Porsche AG Executive Board Chairman Oliver Blume said following the launch of the Taycan saloon, that they will offer more electrified options in their new vehicles come 2025.
“In 2019, we sent out a key signal with the debut of our first all-electric sports car,” Blume said.
“We see ourselves as pioneers of sustainable mobility: by 2025, half of all the new vehicles we 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,” he added.
