The new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo shows its muscle in the most challenging conditions.

Coinciding with the arrival of the first models, Porsche Middle East and Africa FZE is celebrating the new all-electric Taycan Cross Turismo with a thrilling video that showcases the versatile model being pushed to its limits in two remote locations with opposing climatic extremes.

Two identical racetracks, one in the sandy desert in Liwa (UAE) and the other on a snow-blanketed frozen lake north of the Arctic Circle in Levi (Finland), play host to the project, titled Drive2Extremes, which sees the Taycan Cross Turismo power between two contrasting worlds. Taking the viewer on this visual journey is the FPV drone videography of talented Johnny Schaer, better known as Johnny FPV.

Reflecting the nature of the Taycan Cross Turismo, the world’s first electric Cross Utility Vehicle, the film features epic driving moments.

With its off-road elements and benchmark performance, combined with typical Porsche comfort and innovative design, the Taycan Cross Turismo is the all-rounder among electric sports cars. Three derivatives of the vehicle are now available, all featuring the Performance Battery Plus as standard, offering up to 456km of range from the 93.4kWh battery.

The Taycan 4 Cross Turismo generates overboost power of up to 350kW (476PS), accelerating from 0-100km/h in 5.1 seconds and boasting a top speed 220km/h. The Turbo model is the most powerful of the three, delivering up to 500kW (680PS) and accelerating from 0-100km/h in 3.3 seconds. Its top speed is 250km/h.

The new models feature all the assets of the Taycan sports saloon, including the 800-volt architecture, two-speed transmission on the rear axle, and high recuperative power of up to 275kW. ✤
