The Taycan Cross Turismo starts at $90,900 (plus $1,350 destination). Upgrading to the 4S takes the price to $110,300. The Turbo is $153,500, and the range-topping Turbo S goes for $187,600. Each model will be equipped with two battery packs that hold up to 83.7-kWh of energy and two permanent-magnet synchronous motors, one on each axle.  There’s also the Intelligent Range Manager that adjusts max speed and air conditioning to minimize the charging necessary along a given route.

The 4, 4S and Turbo can accomplish the same feat in 4.8, 3.9 and 3.1 seconds, respectively.

All four versions of the Cross Turismo come with adaptive air suspension, which can be used to quickly raise the vehicle’s clearance by 0.39 inches (10 mm) and stiffen up the ride when in “Gravel Mode.”  The Off-Road Design Package includes a revised body kit with extra cladding on the lower valence, side skirts, and rear diffuser. Additionally, Porsche is offering two new electric bicycles to go with the Taycan Cross Turismo: the eBike Sport for street use, and the eBike Cross for the trails.
