The production version of the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo has finally made its debut with four AWD variants on offer at launch. The off-road Taycan is scheduled to go on sale in summer in Europe with prices in Germany starting at €93,635 (including 19% VAT).
The photos here showcase the Taycan 4S Cross Turismo (white) and Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo (green), but as mentioned, there’ll be Taycan 4 Cross Turismo and Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo as well. Those sexy 20-inch wheels in the Turbo S are the same as the ones we saw in the uncamouflaged prototype in January this year; the design is identical to those on the 2018 concept. Compared to the Mission E Cross Turismo concept, the production version loses the bonnet running lights and adds the roof rails. Overall, the differences are subtle compared to the regular Taycan.
The adaptive air suspension comes as standard on all four models and so is the SmartLift function. The optional Off-Road package increases the ground clearance by up to 30 mm. The car also gets a standard ‘Gravel Mode’ for driving on rough roads. The range-topping Turbo S model gets the ceramic composite discs (PCCB) measuring 420 mm at the front and 410 mm at the rear. The 4 and 4S models get cast-iron discs while the Turbo gets tungsten carbide-coated cast-iron discs (PSCB).
Moving on to the juicy bits, all these variants get a 93.4 kWh Performance Battery Plus battery pack as standard with a maximum charging capacity of 270 kW. The power output is the same as the AWD Taycan models equipped with Performance Battery Plus.
The Taycan 4 Cross Turismo offers 280 kW (381 metric hp) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque, with overboost output of 350 kW (476 metric hp). In the 4S model, the figures are 360 kW (489 metric hp) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque, with 420 kW (571 metric hp) of overboost. The Turbo model boasts 460 kW (625 metric hp) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque and 500 kW (680 metric hp) of overboost. The range-topping Turbo S pumps out 460 kW (625 metric hp) and 1,050 Nm (774 lb-ft) of torque and 560 kW (761 metric hp) of overboost.
The Turbo S is claimed to sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, for those interested to know, while the top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
As for the claimed WLTP ranges, the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo offers between 389-456 km (242-284 mi); the 4S Cross Turismo between 388-452 km (241-281 mi); the Turbo Cross Turismo between 395-452 km (245-281 mi), and the range-topping Turbo S Cross Turismo, featured above, offers between 388-419 km (241-260 mi).
