Porsche’s adventure-going Taycan Cross Turismo makes rare appearance

Porsche serves up closest glimpse yet at its upcoming all-electric cross utility vehicle.

The best look we’ve had at the upcoming Taycan Cross Turismo was at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2018 when the Mission E Cross Turismo made an appearance.

While the Stuttgart automaker is still close lipped about the production-going model, the new Taycan station wagon did make a rare appearance, hitting the streets accompanied by a short video with more details hosted by the Taycan’s head honcho, Stefan Weckbach:

A Taycan built for adventure?

Sporting a long roofline and increased ride height, the new Porsche EV looks to offer more interior space, flexibility, and increase versatility over the other Taycan models. 

As Weckbach puts it, “We developed a completely new roofline, fitted with roof rails, a more generous second row and bigger trunk, all to make a car that is perfect for an active lifestyle. A car that is perfect for both an urban environment and the countryside.”

“With the Taycan Cross Turismo, we wanted to offer a little bit more space, a little more flexibility and versatility”

According to Porsche, this version is built for gravel roads and routes that veer off the pavement. By increasing the ground clearance and optimizing the suspension, coupled with a specific CUV drive mode, the new Taycan Cross Turismo ramps up performance, driving dynamics, and overall stability.

With over 20,000 Taycan models delivered globally, the lineup continues to grow — recently with addition of a rear-wheel drive model serving as an entry-level (and most affordable) option, and now, with the upcoming CUV version. 

The 2021 lineup grows

So, as it stands, the Taycan lineup grow to five models, including the trio first released: the Taycan 4S, Taycan Turbo, and range-topping Taycan S. 

No release date or pricing has been announced. Meantime, check out our 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S from Finland here
