Porsche’s newest electric vehicle (EV) has arrived, and it’s looking great at first glance.
On Thursday, Motortrend reported on the new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, an electric luxury wagon with a little more space, a taller height off the ground, and a more off-road-looking style than the Porsche’s Taycan sedan.
Considered a “more well-rounded version” of the Taycan sedan by Porsche, the Cross Turismo features many similarities with the sedan, save for newly-standard air springs, which are optional on other Taycan models, and the general shape of the body.

All in all, the vehicle isn’t much of a change from the Taycan sedan besides in looks and feel. Along with the off-road look of the Cross Turismo, the vehicle features a “Gravel” mode, in which it raises the suspension 0.39 inches higher than normal, allocating a stability slock, of sorts, to equalize the speed of each wheel.
By purchasing the “off-road design pack,” however, Taycan buyers can also get a Cross Turismo which comes with the 0.39-inch suspension raise as the standard.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo starts at $92,250 (USD), and while the range has yet to be determined, its other Taycan models range between 199 and 227 miles.
In any case, the new EV from Porsche is a welcome treat for the luxury car community, and as more vehicles continue to go electric, we’re likely to see even more luxury EVs in the years to come.
