Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Review By Skyfleet

From launch porsche’s first battery-powered model the tai can was billed as the company’s first all-electric sports car can a sports car also be an suv porsche is insisting that it can and to prove the point has bought us this tycoon spin-off model the taikan cross turismo all cross turismo derivatives are almost indecently fast for anything purporting to be

An suv even the base four cross tourism variant has 476 ps and gets to 62 miles an hour in just 5.1 seconds on the route 237 miles an hour this 571 ps 4s version improves those stats to 4.1 seconds and 149 miles an hour both the turbo and the turbo s variants develop a standard 625 ps and have a launch control feature that for short periods can boost that to

680ps on the turbo and as much as 762 ps on the turbo s the latter as a consequence able to demolish the naught to 62 miles an hour sprint in just 2.9 seconds more important perhaps than the sheer speed are two other attributes first this cross turismo’s low slung stance means that it doesn’t really roll any more than a conventional tycan sports saloon or if it

Does i couldn’t discern it which is nice if you want an suv without any dynamic downsides secondly the brakes are brilliant progressive and as usual on an ev mainly driven by the regenerative system the latter by the way can’t be controlled with steering wheel paddles there are instead simple on off or auto options on the central screen even with on activated

There isn’t ever really a one pedal style of abrupt slowing off throttle the cross turismo shares the same powertrain options as the normal thai can say for the fact that it can’t be ordered with two things most customers for this porsche ev don’t tend to want any way a rear wheel drive and the smaller 79.2 kilowatt-hour battery pack all variants get the tycan’s

Usual twin e motor setup with the rear unit driving a two-speed transmission with a shorter initial ratio optimized for initial acceleration the standardized 93.4 kilowatt-hour performance battery plus setup will take the car anywhere between 241 and 283 miles depending on variant and the conditions though not if you exercise your right foot as you’ll be tempted

To none of the dynamic stuff in play here is anything we haven’t seen before torque vectoring adaptive damping with three chamber air suspension and optionally rear wheel steering and pdcc electromechanical roll stabilization but with porsche’s 4d chassis control setup coordinating it all like the conductor of an orchestra the result through the turns is quite

Simply astonishing when you consider the amount of weight in play here the steering brakes and ride quality are all brilliant almost 911 like no other large suv ev or otherwise drives like this soul of a sports car that about covers it the key difference with this ev over most of its rivals lies in its 800 volt power supply which is double that normally seen with

Electric cars and it’s based on tech trialed by porsche in its lamar winning 919 hybrid race car the idea here is that by pushing up voltage you can drop the current without affecting power output lower current means faster charging times using a 9.6 kilowatt-hour wall box replenishment will take about 10 and a half hours a more common 7.4 kilowatt uh garage wall

Box would take slightly longer around 13 and a half hours if you want to do better and your home has access to three-phase electricity the brand will offer you a war box upgrade to the anderson a2 system which can reach speeds of up to 22 kilowatts though only if you paid extra for the optional onboard ac charger with 22 kilowatt package using that you’ll be able

To fully top up the battery in just over four hours as usual with evs there’s a downloadable application allowing you to set charging times and pre-condition the cabin remotely it’s the porsche connect app and for when you’re out and about well porsche is keen to talk of the taikan cross turismo’s peak charging capacity of 270 kilowatts which theoretically means

That the 93.4 kilowatt-hour battery can be recharged from five to eighty percent in just 23 minutes that’s at an 800 volt charging station and currently there are only a handful of those in the uk a more easily located 400 volt public charging station will take about an hour and a half to do the same thing providing you pay porsche extra for the optional onboard

Booster which increases the car’s standard charging peak from 50 kilowatts to 150 kilowatts uh what else well the service intervals are every two years or 20 000 miles and insurance for all variants is the top of the shop group 50. you can have this crossover style tai can design in two forms we have the more suv like cross turismo model here the alternative is

The sport turismo model basically the same car but without side cladding or raised suspension our focus here as i said is on the cross turismo variant which sits 20 millimeters higher off the ground than the standard tiken sports saloon or 30 millimeters higher with the off-road design package fitted as here now both the sport and cross turismo models have a no

Section differentiated from that of the ordinary four-door tycoon by this specific front apron inside as you’d expect things are much as they are with the tiken sports saloon though you sit a little higher and a compass mounted on the top of the dashboard is optionally available as part of the sport chrono pack to give more of an suv vibe as with every model in

The tiken range classic porsche design staples here mix with modern technology the instrument cluster is wider than the steering wheel in a manner reminiscent of the original 911. take a closer look though and you’ll find that what lies behind the chunky three-spoke wheel is anything but retro a 16.8 inch curved digital screen one of up to four here at the front

Of the cabin there’s a lower 8.4 inch touch pad on the center console just below a 10.9 inch pcm porsche communication management central infotainment monitor which can be optional extended with a further supplementary display for the front passenger there’s a lot to take in all of this feels entirely appropriate to a cutting-edge 21st century premium ev but

You can’t help sometimes feeling that old-fashioned knobs and buttons particularly on this lower center display would be easier and more intuitive to use on the move there are other curiosities too this rather hidden knurled dash mounted gear shifter plus you’re not offered any sort of handbrake button and there are no mechanically operated louvers for the air

Vents either you have to activate them via this lower screen still you adjust to all of this quite quickly and the instrument screen in particular has been well thought through based as you can see around these three configurable round virtual dials the main interior design changes that differentiate this cross turismo though are at the back and let’s start by

Taking a look at the rear seat inside there’s a modified roof line which enables rear seat passengers to enjoy 47 millimeters more headroom than in the lower slung tyke and sports saloon and that’s not compromised much by the huge optional panoramic glass roof that we’ve got fitted here which floods the cabin with light though unfortunately it doesn’t darken

At the press of a button like the one in a rival bmw ix clever so-called foot garages scooped out of the ev floor plan mean that there’s plenty of space for your feet you don’t get this middle part of the rear bench as standard that’s only supplied as part of an extra cost 4 plus one package which you may not want because you’d struggle to take three folk back

Here thanks to the kind of overtly high central transmission tunnel you’d think an electric vehicle wouldn’t need right let’s finish by inspecting the luggage areas as you’d expect from this cross charisma models more suv like body style the boot is bigger than that of the taikan sports saloon increased from the 407 litre total you get with that ev sedan to 446

Liters here lift the bonnet and there’s an additional 84 litre front frunk compartment if you’re choosing a tie cam because it’s a more practical version of what an electric 911 might be like then you’ll probably like the titan cross turismo even more it manages to feel both involving and commanding to drive and like the standard tycoon is stupendously quick in

Its fast performance also like the standard tycoon though its eevee range figures are some way from the class best but since the typical owner will have several other combustion sports luxury models in his or her oak timbered garage that shouldn’t matter much of greater importance is whether the dawn of time looks represent the statement that you want to make at

The golf club if you’re happy with that make sure you tick the off-road design package option i must have if said club is at the end of the kind of rutted track that might ruin a conventional thai can actually drive in one of these might ruin a conventional titan for you in many ways it’s the next stage on you
