The wagon version of the Taycan is near – well, sort of. The production version of the Mission E Cross Turismo is expected to hit the world stage by the end of this year, as revealed in the 2019 Annual and Sustainability Report of Porsche AG, officially named Taycan Cross Turismo.
While the official date may not come soon enough, the Taycan Cross Turismo has already been spied on several times to give us a glimpse of what’s to come. More recently, our spy photographers spotted the Cross Turismo prototype at the Nürburgring.
While not apparent in the stills, our spy photographers mentioned that the all-electric Porsche wagon was seen doing handling tests at Green Hell. How we wish we could get our hands on a spy video for this, but we’ll be there once available.
For now, we can be happy with the design of the Taycan Cross Turismo, which is essentially revealed here due to the vehicle’s minimal concealment. Up front, it wears the same face as the Taycan sedan, with only subtle nips and tucks. It also carries the same LED configuration.
In profile, the Taycan Cross Turismo looks quite familiar. As it stands, that’s what the Panamera Sport Turismo is for the Panamera – a sleek wagon version for those looking for functionality without compromising performance.
Speaking of performance, the Taycan Cross Turismo is expected to have the same powertrain setup as its sedan counterpart, which means powers between 530 horsepower (395 kilowatts) and 761 horsepower (567 kW). We can also expect a similar range, although we don’t want to prejudge what Porsche has in store for its new electric vehicle.
Note, the Taycan Cross Turismo is just the start of a range of Taycan-based electric Porsches. We will know more about this evolution in the months or years come.
