The next family member to the Taycan family is about to make its entrance on the world stage.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is currently completing its final test drives.
The extensive Porsche testing programme has taken place on race tracks such as the Nürburgring Nordschleife and the Grand Prix track in Hockenheim (both in Germany) as well as on testing grounds worldwide – including in the southern Italian town of Nardò. The Cross Turismo has also been tested off the beaten track in the South of France and in the Pyrenees, while the testing grounds at the Weissach Development Centre offered a further off-road challenge outside of Africa with the ‘Safari’ track. Having completed a total of 998,361 testing kilometres, the Cross Turismo prototypes have circumnavigated the globe almost 25 times – measured at the equator.
Parallel to the final test drives, a camouflaged Taycan Cross Turismo has been on a global test tour with media representatives since the beginning of the year. In just six weeks, this prototype visited the five countries: the US, the UK, Norway, the Netherlands and Germany.
The new derivative features all the strengths of the Taycan sports saloon such as superior performance and long range. The chassis with all-wheel drive and air suspension is height-adjustable. There is also significantly more headroom for the passengers in the rear and a large load capacity under the tailgate. The package and space conditions have been optimised down to the very last detail.
The Taycan was successfully launched worldwide at the end of 2019. The new Cross Turismo combines Porsche E-Performance with enhanced suitability for everyday use and appeals to customers with an active lifestyle. The Taycan Cross Turismo will launch in Europe in summer 2021.
The digital world premiere of the first electric Cross Utility Vehicle will take place on 4 March at 15:00 (GMT) on newstv.porsche.com.

Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
