Porsche has introduced the wagon model of its first electric sedan, Taycan, featuring body cladding and an SUV-like look. Named Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, the electric wagon will hit the U.S. roads in summer.
Like the Taycan sedan, the Cross Turismo is available in four variants: 4, 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S, with the base model costing $1,530 extra than its sedan counterpart.
The new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo boasts a standard all-wheel-drive, Performance Battery Plus, and two permanent-magnet synchronous motors creating 469 horsepower for the entry-level 4, 562-hp for the 4S, 670-hp for the Turbo, and 750-hp for the Turbo S. The automaker says the most powerful Turbo S can go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds.
Porsche did not reveal the range estimates yet. However, we can tell that the 2021 Taycan 4S sedan offers EPA-estimated 227 miles while the Turbo and Turbo S deliver 201 and 192 miles, respectively. And because the Cross Turismo has a higher ride height and 100 pounds extra weight, its range will be slightly lower.
Thanks to the standard adaptive dampers and air suspension, the ride height is 0.8-inch higher than its sibling. For an even higher ride, drivers can select Gravel mode or opt for the off-road design package for a permanent extra ride height of Gravel mode. The pack also includes different front and rear designs, more body cladding, and side skirts.
Other standard features comprise a panoramic glass sunroof, 16.8-inch digital gauge cluster, a 10.9-inch display with an 8.4-inch underneath it for climate and different settings. A passenger display is optional.
The 2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo will come with three years of free charging from Electrify America. The entry-level model will go for $92,250, 4S for $111,650, Turbo for $154,850, and Turbo S for $188,950.
