The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, the electric crossover, is closer than we thought
There is virtually no manufacturer that has not launched a > electric model or that is not working hard in this field. Everything points to electric cars being the future. The Porsche Taycan will be the first electric of the German brand, and have high hopes for it. The final version will be presented in September, probably at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and will later arrive a crossover variant: the Porsche Taycan Cross Tourism .
Seeing the great acceptance that the Porsche Taycan has had, it was to be expected that, once the serial production was confirmed, we would soon know a second model of crossover aesthetics. And you know the great importance of this type of bodies in the market, even for premium manufacturers or sports vehicles as in the case of Porsche.
The Stuttgart brand has not confirmed an exact date for the commercial launch of the Porsche Taycan Cross Tourism, the aforementioned crossover body with all-electric propulsion system. However, he has stated in a press release that this model will be presented at the beginning of the next decade .
In the images we see the Porsche Mission E Cross Tourism prototype.
We do not think that Porsche takes too long to bring Cross Tourism to dealers. Although they are simple intuitions , it is easy to think that this variant will be presented during the year 2020 and that it could reach the first markets during the year 2021 . And is that the Cross Tourism technically will be very similar to the Taycan "to dry", limiting practically to slightly raise its body and providing some different aesthetic details to enhance the crossover aesthetic.
In the same press release they confirmed that the new generation of their average SUV, the Porsche Macan, will also have electric propulsion ; creating a second family of fully electrified models. Its intention is that by 2025, half of the vehicles marketed by the company are electric or plug-in hybrids.
Taking advantage of the same press release, the German company talks about its growth during 2018 , with an operating profit that grew 4% compared to the predecessor year; and a 10% increase in marketing revenues. In fiscal year 2018, they delivered 256,255 vehicles to customers and, on the other hand, the company's workforce grew by nearly 9% to reach 32,325 Porsche employees.It may interest you
