Porsche officially announces upcoming Taycan Cross Turismo for later this year


Porsche finally entered the fully-electric automotive scene in late 2019 with the all new Porsche Taycan, which comes in four variations, the Taycan 4S, Taycan Turbo, and Taycan Turbo S.

Now Porsche has officially announced plans to release its second electric vehicle (EV) just 12 months later with the Taycan Cross Turismo.

The fact their next EV is the Cross Turismo is not a big surprise. The automaker previewed the Taycan SUV/wagon in early 2018. It was also spotted late last year getting some track time at Germany’s famed Nürburgring.

Even though Porsche has now announced a late 2020 delivery date for the Cross Turismo, details about the vehicle are still scarce. At the original conept unveiling, Porsche claimed it would reach 60mph in under 3.2 seconds, come with all-wheel-drive (AWD) as standard, and have an adaptive air suspension.

Given what we already know about the Taycan and its performance, the numbers above will probably be pretty close to the what the production version of the Cross Turismo. Although given it’s slightly less aerodynamic presence, it probably won’t quite match up to the Taycan.

Porsche began deliveries of the Taycan in late 2019. According to reports, the automaker had received 30,000 deposits for the EV, but delivered only 130. This was after Porsche began emailing customers after production complexities had resulted in an 8-10 week delay.
