Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Gets Production Green Light

Derived from the forthcoming Taycan, the four-door Mission E Cross Turismo will sport a bigger boot along with its raised ride height in order to reinforce its more practical, go-anywhere image.

Porsche introduced its first wagon this model year with the Panamera Sport Turismo and surprised us all by offering it to USA buyers as well. The vehicle is a derivative of the Taycan, which was originally known as the Mission E (earlier post).

Porsche is now focused on bringing the Taycan sedan into production for arrival next year.

Other than that, the Cross Turismo will share the powertrain of the Taycan, with one electric motor per axle to deliver over 440kW of power, Porsche's 800v charging capacity and a 90kWh battery to deliver a range of 500 kilometers (according to the old NEDC measurement method).

The Mission E Sport Turismo concept was unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March this year, building on the regular Mission E with a jumped-up wagon profile.

The vehicle will be one of the variations of the first all-electric Porsche - the Taycan, which arrives to the market in 2019 and generated 1,200 new jobs.

In the network appeared the spy pictures of the tests of the new Porsche elektrouniversal Taycan.

The Taycan family will consist of the Carrera, Carrera S and Turbo versions. There's no word on exact pricing or specs yet, though Robert Meier, Line Director for the Taycan, recently told Automotive News that he was "expecting a price somewhere between a Cayenne and a Panamera" for that model.
