Exploring the 2022 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo: A High-Performance Electric Wagon
The 2022 Porsche Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo is a high-performance electric wagon that offers a perfect blend of style, power, and practicality. With its sleek, modern design and impressive range, this electric vehicle (EV) is set to make a significant impact on the automotive market.
Space and Practicality
Despite its compact appearance, the Taycan Cross Turismo offers a generous 405L of luggage space at the rear. When the rear seats are folded, this space increases to 1171L. Additionally, there is an extra 84L of under-bonnet storage at the front, perfect for a carry-on case, briefcase, or shopping bags. Accessing this storage requires releasing the safety catch up front, making it ideal for items you don’t need to access frequently.
Performance and Range
The 2022 Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo is an entry-level version of the fully electric Taycan crossover, equipped with the Performance Battery Plus setup as standard. This setup boasts a capacity of 93.4kWh, allowing the Taycan 4 to offer the longest range of all three variants at 437km. Prices start from $180,400 for the 2022 model, with the MY23 update starting from $178,800 and featuring a range increase to 469km.
Design and Charging Options
The Taycan’s design is cohesive and consistent, with an optional Off-Road Design package that includes aero flaps and a 10mm increase in ground clearance. The vehicle offers two charging socket types: a Type 2 socket for AC charging and a CCS2 socket for rapid DC charging. An optional onboard system allows for up to 22kW AC charging.
Power and Milestones
Equipped with two AC synchronous motors and an all-wheel drive, the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo has a power output of 280kW (350kW over boost) and 500Nm of torque. The 100,000th all-electric Porsche Taycan recently rolled off the production line, with the milestone car being a Taycan Turbo S finished in Neptune Blue and destined for a customer in the United Kingdom. The Taycan is now available in three body styles: the Taycan sports sedan, Taycan Cross Turismo, and Taycan Sport Turismo. The Taycan 4S offers the longest range of 513 kilometers (318 miles), while the Taycan Turbo S holds the record for the fastest production electric car around the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with a time of 7 minutes 33 seconds. The top three markets for the all-electric sports car are currently the US, China, and the UK/Republic of Ireland, with many customers having already covered more than 100,000 kilometers in their electric sports car. Transport entrepreneur Jean-Hubert Revolon has driven over 188,119 kilometers in his Taycan 4S since mid-August 2020.
