- this prototype of a taycan cross turismo gives us a glimpse at the production version of this wagon variant.
- the cross turismo was first shown in concept form in 2018.
- it should share its electric drivetrain and basic components with the taycan sedan, but with more cargo space and a raised suspension.
porsche is nearly ready to take the suv-inspired wagon trend into the electric sphere with the upcoming taycan cross turismo. first shown in concept form years ago, the cross turismo is now in prototype stage, and these images give us a good indication of what the final product will look like.
the cross turismo's extended roofline is the biggest change compared with the taycan sedan, and it should offer considerably more cargo space. there's also extra wheel-arch cladding, and porsche says that it has revised the air suspension to provide extra ground clearance. as such, we don't expect the cross turismo to offer the taycan's new rear-wheel-drive base setup. instead, it should come standard with all-wheel drive like the panamera's sport turismo wagon variant does.
the 522-hp dual-motor setup from the taycan 4s is the most likely candidate for the cross turismo's base powertrain, with 670-hp turbo and 750-hp turbo s models set to join the lineup as well. it will likely offer the same battery-pack options as the sedan, meaning either a 71.0-kwh pack as standard and an 83.7-kwh pack as optional. due to the cross turismo's extra weight, it may offer worse driving-range estimates than the sedan, which is rated at up to 227 miles by the epa for the 2021 taycan 4s with the upgraded battery pack.
porsche doesn't say exactly when it will reveal the taycan cross turismo in full, but we think it will arrive within the next few months with a starting price around $110,000.
