Auto aficionados are still waiting for Porsche’s first electric car to be released on the market. But the German manufacturers have already announced the production of their second electric model.
Around a year before the launch of the eagerly anticipated Taycan, Porsche has now given the green light to begin the production of the Mission E Cross Turismo this coming spring.
While the Taycan is a sleek four-door sports car, the Cross Turismo is a family car aimed for leisure pursuits, combining a steeper tailgate and increased ground clearance with a more rustic design.
However, looking beyond the aesthetic differences in the two cars, and the technology under both bonnets remains the same.
Both models having two engines with a combined power of 441kW/600hp, reaching speeds of around 250 km/h and a driving range of over 500 kilometres.
The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is scheduled for release in 2020.
