Porsche has presented the Taycan Cross Turismo to the public today with a virtual world premiere.
The sports car manufacturer is expanding the product portfolio of its first all-electric sports car range with the addition of this versatile off-road version, thereby continuing the systematic pursuit of its path towards sustainable mobility.
Like the Taycan sports saloon, the Taycan Cross Turismo benefits from an innovative electric drive with 800-volt architecture (Taycan Cross Turismo Models: CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 29.4 – 28.1 kwh/100 km).
The new high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension also ensures uncompromising dynamics off-road. Thirty six millimetres more headroom for rear-seat passengers and more than 1,200 litres of load capacity, loaded through the large tailgate at the rear, make the Cross Turismo a true all-rounder.
“In 2019, we sent out a key signal with the debut of our first all-electric sports car,” said Oliver Blume Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, at the world premiere of the new, even more versatile derivative.
“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 high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension comes as standard on all four models. The optional Off-Road package increases ground clearance by up to 30 mm.
This means that the Cross Turismo can also be driven on demanding off-road terrain. The standard “Gravel Mode” improves the suitability of the new model for driving on rough roads.
The world premiere of the new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo took place in the Hyperbowl Studio at the Munich Trade Fair Centre. This spectacular new studio brings together the worlds of film and reality: a 270-degree curved LED wall, 40 metres long and 5.5 m tall, is combined with an LED ceiling to provide a 478 square-metre screen surface with 70 million pixels. The world premiere was broadcast on newstv.porsche.com. It can be viewed there at any time.
