2022 Porsche Taycan Family has an entry-level model with rear-wheel drive and a 79.2-kwh battery pack, a combo that’s good for a 0-60 mph time of 5.1 seconds. It solely will get faster because the battery grows to 93.4 kwh and because it good points one other motor in front. On the top end, the 750-hp Taycan Turbo S can catapult to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds for brutal acceleration accomplished in near-silence.
2022 Porsche Taycan Family
The Taycan is the pure expression of a Porsche electric sports car. Striking proportions, timeless and instantly recognizable design, and a perfect blend of performance with everyday usability.
Taycan 4 Cross Turismo
The Taycan Cross Turismo embraces your lifestyle, with an enlarged rear luggage compartment and even more spacious interior. Its bold capability is further highlighted by the characteristic accents of the Off-road Design Package.
Taycan GTS Sport Turismo
Timeless design and generous space. Peerless performance and everyday versatility. Engaging dynamics and exceptional comfort. The new Taycan GTS Sport Turismo effortlessly combines elegance and practicality with no compromises.
Taycan exterior design
Vertical air intakes ahead of the front wheels – so called Air Curtains – also improve the aerodynamics, by guiding incoming air over the wheels like a curtain, reducing turbulence.
Four-point LED headlights
Directly above these is the highlight of the front: four-point LED headlights¹ with Matrix that combine all the light functions in a single component and appear to be floating.
Automatically extending door handles
The silhouette is characterized by a dynamic, flat flyline. Flush, automatically extending door handles open the vehicle interior with its deep, sporty seating position.
Panoramic fixed glass roof
There are two roof options: the contoured variant made of lightweight aluminum with an indentation in the middle creates a shape that is known to us from motorsport. Alternatively, a panoramic fixed glass roof provides an open, airy feeling.
The rear design boasts a seamless light strip and ‘PORSCHE’ logo made of three-dimensional letters in a glass look. Above these are the Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) in the form of a three-stage rear spoiler system.
Taycan Cross Turismo exterior design
Cross Turismo design
Front and rear fascias and side skirts have a distinctive design. The external appearance is perfectly complemented by wheel arch moldings and unique wheel designs.
With 20 mm (0.78 in.) more ground clearance than the Taycan the Taycan Cross Turismo shows that its versatility extends beyond everyday life even when stationary.
Off-Road Design Package
The optional Off-Road Design Package also provides a further 10 mm (0.39 in.) of ground clearance at the ‘middle’ chassis level as well as integrated off-road design cladding for the lower front valence, sideskirts and rear diffuser.
The profile reveals not only the iconic Porsche flyline, but also the rear in Cross Turismo design with a painted roof spoiler in High Gloss Black, large tailgate and flat rear windshield – providing more headroom for rear passengers. This is particularly worthwhile in view of the extra-large panoramic fixed glass roof embedded in the shape of the vehicle.
Panoramic fixed glass roof
It reaches way beyond the second row of seats and offers spectacular views of the passing sky. Optionally available roof rails makes it possible to install a practical roof box.
Optional rear-mounted bike carrier
For joint expeditions into the countryside, the rearmounted bike carrier, which is available on request, means you can take with you up to three additional bicycles. A weight-dependent damping system ensures smooth folding – even when fully loaded – and thus convenient access to the boot.
Taycan GTS Sport Turismo exterior design
The design concept
Inspired by the Panamera Sport Turismo , the new Taycan GTS Sport Turismo takes the concept of the five-door sports car into an all-electric future – with the rear body styling of the Taycan Cross Turismo including a large tailgate, combined with sport side skirts, wheel designs and chassis from the Taycan.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the air suspension including PASM not only provide more comfort and additional stability at a low chassis height, but also emphasise the typical sports car look.
21-inch RS Spyder Design Wheel
For a particularly sporty and elegant connection with the road: the 21-inch RS Spyder Design Wheel with a GTS-specific paint finish in Satin Black impressively rounds off the extroverted style of the Taycan GTS Sport Turismo.
Porsche Taycan interior
Mechanical buttons have been almost entirely replaced by digital ones. This makes the interior look extremely tidy. The same principle of tidiness also applies to the displays, of which there are up to four – intuitive, distraction-free and easy to use.
16.8-inch curved display
The arrangement is also driver-focused, as is typical of Porsche: the instrument cluster is the center of attention, consisting of a 16.8-inch curved display and surrounded by control panels with Direct Touch Control for selecting lighting and chassis functions.
In addition, the optional head-up display projects the main driving information directly in the driver’s field of vision.
Optional compass display
And if you look to the right in the Taycan Cross Turismo, you will discover another analog highlight: the optional compass display on the dashboard.
Your central control unit for audio, navigation and communication: Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including online navigation¹. The PCM display on the 10.9-inch central display on the dashboard can be individually configured, allowing direct access to the most important functions.
8.4-inch center console control panel
Another digital element is located in the center console, namely the 8.4-inch center console control panel. This provides access to navigation, media, telephone, settings and Apple CarPlay® via a menu bar which can be disabled. The trunks and charging port doors can also be opened and closed from here. The charging display and battery charge status can also be viewed.
The Taycan battery exploits its huge potential by using pouch cells, chemically optimized for maximum performance with a long range: in the large capacity version (Performance Battery Plus), there 33 modules with a total of 396 cells. The more compact Performance Battery that is fitted as standard in the Taycan and Taycan 4S produces its energy from 28 modules with a total of 336 cells. The Taycan Turbo, Taycan Turbo S and Taycan GTS as well as all Taycan Cross Turismo models feature the Performance Battery Plus as standard.
The battery is also based on 800-volt technology instead of the usual 400 volts. The effect: improved charging and drive performance with smaller cable cross-sections, which has a positive impact on the overall weight.The cooling system ensures that the drive is optimally supplied with energy in any situation. And a robust battery frame helps protect the battery even in the event of an accident.
Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors
The key to designing an outstanding drive to start with a clean sheet and a purpose-led approach: no compromises with the perfect interaction of drive components. Two Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors are therefore installed in the Taycan 4S, Taycan Turbo, Taycan Turbo S and Taycan GTS as well as in the Taycan Cross Turismo models – one on each axle – and the Performance Battery Plus is integrated deep in the underbody. The effect: superior driving dynamics and all-wheel drive that can be optimally adjusted to the fluctuation between efficiency and dynamics in the various driving modes.
The concept of the permanent magnet synchronous motor provides high power density, high continuous output and high efficiency in a compact design. A newly developed, automatically switching two-speed transmission on the rear axle ensures noticeably improved dynamics.
The interaction of the drive components produces impressive performance figures, both technically and emotionally: with up to 560kW (750 HP) overboost is activated with Launch Control, both machines accelerate the Taycan Turbo S from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. And this can be repeatedly reproduced: consecutive acceleration is possible, up to a top track speed of 161 mph.
