Porsche marketing has gone above and beyond with its latest video. There is no doubt that the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is an exciting car, but there are many potential owners who want to know more about its new EV transmission. I’m sure many customers are concerned about how the Taycan will handle extreme heat or cold. To answer this question, Porsche used two off-road drift courses, a hot air balloon, a dog sled team, camels and a highly skilled drone pilot. The resulting video is something you’re going to want to watch all day.
The Taycan Cross Turismo is the practical and versatile brother of the Taycan EV sports sedan. The Cross Turismo adds ground clearance, plastic body cladding and a tailgate, making it Porsche’s most practical electric vehicle offering. To show just how capable the Taycan Cross Turismo is in off-road situations, Porsche creates two tracks, one in the sand of a desert and the other on a frozen lake.
The all-wheel drive configuration of the Taycan Cross Turismo uses torque vectoring and benefits from an electric motor mounted on each axle. In the top Turbo S version, the Taycan Cross Turismo develops an impressive 750 horsepower (560 kilowatts) and a torque of 774 lb-ft (1050 Newton-meters). The two-speed automatic transmission means the Taycan can always set the appropriate power levels to suit your speed.
So, can the Taycan Cross Turismo run off-road in temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit) or negative 30 degrees Celsius (-22 Fahrenheit)? Based on this amazing video, I don’t think homeowners will have any problems regardless of the temperature outside. This is thanks to Porsche’s attention to detail and rigorous engineering standards that ensure that a high-quality product is ready for anything a customer can throw at it.
