At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Porsche presented a design study that hinted at a derivative of the upcoming Porsche Taycan, the Mission E Cross Turismo. As many may know by now, the Taycan is the series production version of the brand’s first all-electric sports car, the Mission E, that is set to hit the market in 2019.
Well, it looks like the Taycan will be joined by the Mission E Cross Turismo on the production floor. This was the announcement made by Porsche as its supervisory board recently gave the green light for the four-door sport coupe to go into production. This, Porsche says, will not only be a huge step in sustainable mobility but will likewise contribute greatly to giving employment to many.
The German sports car maker notes that the Mission E Cross Turismo’s series production will mean an additional 300 new jobs for the company’s stakeholders. It will already earmark 1,200 new posts once the Taycan hits the production floor next yer. This means more people will have a shot at a better life.
Apart from this, the Mission E Cross Turismo follows the lead of its Taycan sibling by offering a sustainable means of transport that doesn’t sacrifice the brand’s trademark driving dynamics. The 800-volt architecture will boast a sytem output of 600hp and a range of about 500kms. This will allow the car to scoot from 0-100kph in a sports car-like fashion of about a little over 3 seconds without any harmful effects to our environment.
Expect to see the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo hit the market shortly after its Taycan stablemate does.
