The Performance Battery Plus, with a total capacity of 93.4 kWh, is always included as standard equipment. The Taycan 4 Cross Turismo has a power output of 280 kW (380 PS), an overboost power for Launch Control of 350 kW (476 PS), a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 5.1 seconds, a peak speed of 220 km/h, and a range (WLTP) of 389 – 456 km.

The Taycan Cross Turismo takes design ideas from the Mission E Cross Turismo concept shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It sports a dynamic roofline that slopes downward to the back and is known as a "flyline," as well as wheel arch trims, distinctive front and rear lower aprons, and side sills. The Cross Turismo includes specific flaps at the front and rear bumper corners and at the ends of the sills. Porsche has created a rear carrier that can hold up to three bicycles, and the company is also introducing two high-quality e-bikes simultaneously: the eBike Sport and the eBike Cross.
