In terms of design, the Taycan Cross Turismo borrows cues from the Mission E Cross Turismo concept presented at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It has a sporty roofline sloping downward to the rear – called a “flyline”, wheel arch trims, unique front and rear lower aprons and side sills. The Cross Turismo has special flaps at the corners of the front and rear bumpers and at the ends of the sills. Porsche has developed a rear carrier for up to three bicycles and Porsche is also presenting two high-quality e-bikes at the same time – the eBike Sport and the eBike Cross.
