Though Porsche’s all-electric Taycan range launched in early 2021 with the sedan, it has since expanded its offerings to include the Cross Turismo wagon.
Our test car is the flagship Turbo Cross Turismo, and yes, we know how weird it is to name a car after a component it doesn’t even have!
Porsche’s reasoning is that in their parlance, Turbo means faster than 4 and 4S, as with the 911, so you can just think of this as the really fast one.
The 2022 Taycan Cross Turismo range starts at $176,600, before on-road costs for the 4, while the 4S is priced at $205,300.
Unlike the Taycan sedan, there is no Turbo S available for the Cross Turismo, making this Turbo the flagship for now, and it's priced at $279,000.
Standard equipment includes 20-inch wheels, 'LED Matrix' headlights, four-zone climate control, rear privacy glass, a heated steering wheel, electronically-adjustable seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, a head-up display, keyless entry, push-button start, leather interior and a powered tailgate.
Being an electric car, the interior is also kitted out with screens literally everywhere, including a 16.8-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.9-inch multimedia screen and an 8.4-inch climate control touch display.
Even passengers can get in on the action, with a 10.9-inch display optionally available for $2150, while rear occupants have a 5.9-inch screen to control temperature and fan speed.
Being a bleeding-edge Porsche, there are also a number of notably cool features such as a pre-heating/cooling system, thermally insulated glass and keyless drive that will automatically start the car once it detects the key.
Our test car is also fitted with a vast array of options, including rear-axle steering, a fixed panoramic roof, Porsche’s 'Electric Sport Sound' and LED courtesy lights, adding nearly $45,000 to the asking price.
Our test car rings up the till at $323,190, which is substantial, but there aren’t any rivals in the premium, all-electric, sporty wagon space.
