The first Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV) or sports wagon from Porsche, the Taycan Cross Turismo is touted as a versatile and fully electric companion for everyday life, as well as travel and leisure adventures with its robust and sporty design.
The large tailgate at the rear of the Taycan Cross Turismo allows a generous load volume of more than 1,200 litres of load capacity when the rear seatbacks are folded down.
In addition, the vehicle offers 47mm more headroom for rear-seat passengers.
All-wheel drive, air suspension and Performance Battery Plus is fitted as standard across the Taycan Cross Turismo model range.
The Performance Battery Plus, which has a total capacity of 93.4 kWh, is fitted as standard across the Cross Turismo model range.

The high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension is standard across the Cross Turismo model range, providing 20mm higher ground clearance, as compared to its Taycan saloon counterpart.
With the optional Offroad Design package, ground clearance is increased by up to 30mm. This means that the Cross Turismo can be driven on challenging off-road terrain, especially with the new “Gravel” mode exclusive to the Cross Turismo.
This new feature manages torque distribution through traction-optimised shifting and other chassis settings, increasing the suitability of the Cross Turismo for poor-quality roads.
Off road design elements include wheel arch trims, unique front and rear lower aprons and side sills.
As part of the optional Offroad Design package, the Cross Turismo has special flaps at the corners of the front and rear bumpers and at the ends of the sills. These make for a striking exterior as well as providing protection from stone impacts.
The Taycan Cross Turismo will be available for viewing at Porsche Centres nationwide in the coming weeks.
