First revealed earlier this year, the Sime Darby Auto Performance has launched the Taycan Cross Turismo in Malaysia.
It’s available in three variants with prices starting from RM645,209 for the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo, RM728,727 for the Taycan 4S Cross Turismo and RM968,928 for the Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo.
Performance-wise, it’s nothing short of a buffet of options. The Taycan 4 comes with all-wheel drive with an electric motor in the front and back along with adaptive air suspension.
All Taycan Cross Turismo variants also come with the Performance Battery Plus package as standard. With that, the Cross Turismo gets a 93.4 kWh battery with up to 437 km of electric driving range.
With a standard AC charger, a full charge will take about nine hours while the faster DC charger can get the Cross Turismo up to 80% charged in just 23 minutes.

Aside from having a hatchback-style rear end, much like the Panamera Sport Turismo, Porsche’s new EV also stands out with black trims on the side skirts and wheel arches.
Its ground clearance is also 20 mm more than the Taycan. With the Offroad Design Package, ground clearance is further increased by 10 mm, along with flaps on the front and rear bumpers for protection against stone chips.
Inside, the Sport Turismo-like look offers 47 mm more headroom for rear passengers compared to the standard Taycan. The design also allows the boot to handle 40 litres more cargo, at 446 litres. As it is engine-less, the frunk also offers cargo space up to 84 litres.
As you can tell, the rest of the interior looks much like the standard Taycan although with the Offroad Design package, you’ll even get a compass in replacement of the clock/timer on the dashboard.
Porsche’s new EV in Malaysia will be available for viewing at Porsche Centres nationwide soon. Interested to have this parked next to your existing Taycan? Schedule an appointment to view the car here!
