Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Gets Production Green Light

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept has been approved for series production. The vehicle is a derivative of the Taycan. Presentation of the concept model was held in March this year at the motor show in Geneva.

While the concept auto had black body cladding on its wheel arches, as well as a slightly jacked-up ride height, we expect that the production vehicle will mainly gain the slightly different body, not necessarily the crossover-style add-ons. Measured by the NEDC, it can go up to 310 miles (500 kilometers) between two charges and in just four minutes of recharging, the batteries will have enough juice for a range of 62 miles (100 km). A similar arrangement is set to be offered in the production version.

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

Porsche is taking electrification quite seriously committing around seven billion dollars towards EVs through 2022 - it's not only about cold, hard cash, since the company is also responsible for other brands in the VW Group's portfolio such as Audi and Bentley.

Porsche has announced the Mission E Cross Turismo will join the Taycan as the second of its electric cars (and, we assume, be called the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo), be built in Zuffenhausen and create an additional 300 jobs in the process.

"The sports auto manufacturer will create 300 additional jobs at its headquarters in Zuffenhausen for production of the vehicle, which was presented at the Geneva Motor Show 2018".
