As its presentation draws near, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo unveils some of its features, including an off-road mode.
Taking the name and philosophy of the eponymous concept car, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo will adopt a hunting station wagon profile associated with an increased ride height to face dusty roads. It will also be equipped with a mode specific to these conditions.
Can be operated from the Drive Mode dial on the steering wheel, CUV mode (for Cross Utility Vehicle) will adapt the torque distribution between the two motors. And therefore between the two axles forming an all-wheel drive without conventional drive shaft, it is worth remembering: because as we have regularly observed, instantaneous torque management is much more effective than traditional mechanical configurations in difficult situations. precarious adhesion.
Integrals on the menu, an uncertain propulsion version
Not enough to transform the station wagon at the height of the raised body (the values have not yet been communicated) into a pure and hard adventurer, these types of car having rarely made sparks in crossing. But this will undoubtedly be able to reassure customers able to venture on dust or mud with a barge five meters long.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo should unsurprisingly use the same mechanics and versions as the sedan. However, no indication has been given concerning a rear-wheel drive version, which in our eyes will not make sense in this form.
