The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo station wagon is readying for its world premiere. It will take place on March 4th, 2021, with sales in Europe to start this summer.
Meantime, Stefan Weckbach, Head of the Taycan model line’s debut, has shown the prototype in an official video, and has shared a bit of information.
With the Cross Turismo, Porsche wants to offer a little more space, flexibility and versatility.
The maker has changed the roofline, installed roof rails, added space in the second row of seats and increased the trunk.
According to Weckbach, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo handles light off-road and gravel terrain with ease thanks to suspension optimizations, raised ground clearance and a new CUV (cross utility vehicle) mode.
Most likely, the wagon’s powertrain and batteries will not differ from those of the sedan, which found more than 20,000 owners worldwide in its first full year of production.
We mean a battery with 71.0-kWh capacity as standard and an 83.7-kWh pack as an option. An apparent candidate for the Cross Turismo’s base powertrain is the 522-hp dual-motor setup – the same as the Taycan 4S’s.
We expect the Taycan Cross Turismo will come standard with all-wheel drive like the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo wagon does. The vehicle’s electricity consumption combined is 28.7 – 28.0 kWh/100 km.
Due to the extra weight, the wagon version may offer a worse driving range than the sedan’s range of up to 227 miles EPA-rated.
