Those wishing to purchase a second model of Porsche’s electric car (the first was the Taycan) will have to wait. Porsche CEO Oliver Blume announced that the release of the Taycan Cross Turismo has been postponed from late 2020 to early 2021. This is not related to the car market affected by the pandemic, the Porsche chief said. Rather, the company “optimized” its plans with the Taycan selling well and it is too early to start selling its more spacious car.
Despite the similar name, the Cross Turismo will represent Porsche in a different segment, competing with the Tesla Model X of other crossovers. The selected body shape allows for more space in the rear of the machine. In terms of dynamics, the Mission E Cross Turismo concept sprints from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 3.5 seconds.
Porsche plans to bring the share of all-electric models to 40% by 2025.
