The Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo’s trek across Australia showcases its range, efficiency, and the nation’s growing electric infrastructure.
Proving its remarkable capabilities in all conditions, the Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo has completed a groundbreaking 3,107-mile journey across Australia, highlighting long-distance travel for electric vehicles. Kicking off in Darwin and ending at Bondi Beach, the adventure served as testing grounds for the Taycan’s stellar range and Australia’s rapidly expanding network of electric vehicle charging stations. Making use of a variety of charging options, the Taycan 4S Cross Turismo showcased its cutting-edge battery technology, durability, and efficiency. Equipped with an optional 22kw onboard charger, the vehicle optimized its charging times, even in the most remote locations. Over 19 days, the car made 27 charging stops and spent a total of 85 hours charging, mostly overnight.
The route was nothing short of awe-inspiring, featuring stops at Nitmiluk National Park, the stunning Nitmiluk Gorge, the quaint town of Daly Waters, and the iconic Bathurst Racetrack. The car also conquered the infamous Simpson Desert dune ‘Big Red’ and navigated through the roads of the Blue Mountains before reaching its final destination at Bondi Beach. The expedition aligns with Porsche’s electrification strategy, as the all-electric Macan nears completion and will be available in 2024. Following it will be the all-electric versions of the 718 and the Cayenne, cementing Porsche’s commitment to electric mobility.
