Porsche’s Taycan Cross Turismo is the wagon addition to the Taycan EV family and will be available midsummer at a starting price of $92,250. The Cross Turismo will be initially limited to the 469-hp 4 and the 616-hp Turbo, with 562-hp 4S and 750-hp Turbo S variants to come. Since the Cross Turismo has the word Cross in the name and the shape of the body implies some crossover-ness and soft-road credibility, the new model features a 1.2-inch increase in ride height, a new Gravel mode for the stability-control system, retuned air springs and adaptive dampers, and some off-road-themed body work.
Unlike the Taycan sedan, all Cross Turismo models come standard with the larger of the two available battery packs, an 83.7-kWh unit. In the 4, that pack powers the two motors to an available 469 horsepower when using launch control. During normal use, you get 375 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque. As in all Taycans, a two-speed automatic transmission on the rear axle enables brisk off-the-line acceleration and more efficient high-speed cruising. Porsche says the 4 should hit 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, but given that the Taycan 4S outperformed Porsche’s 3.8-second estimate by 0.4, we’re willing to bet the Cross Turismo will hit 60 mph in 4.5 ticks.
