Porsche Confirms Mission E Cross Turismo For Production

Following a rather revealing scoop, Porsche has officially confirmed that the Mission E Cross Turismo will spawn a production version, alongside the Taycan at the Zuffenhausen facility.

It’s unknown when series production will kick off, as Porsche is keeping all other aspects close to its chest for now, but it has been speculated that the production Mission E Cross Turismo might arrive on the market in 2021. By then, Porsche would have hired an additional 300 people at the plant, who will be responsible for putting it together.

Essentially a derivative of the upcoming 2019 Porsche Taycan, the Mission E Cross Turismo was previewed by a concept car at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

The study has a rather futuristic look and a more practical interior, capable of hauling different equipment easily. It will be interesting to see whether some of the technologies found in the cabin of the show car will equip the final production version, such as the eye-tracking control for the instrument cluster.

Porsche is believed to be readying two electric motors for the Mission E Cross Turismo, which might produce a combined output of more than 600 PS (592 hp / 441 kW). The potent battery-electric powertrain and on-demand all-wheel drive system should help it sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.5 seconds, and hit 200 km/h (124 mph) in some 12 seconds, or about the same as the concept.

The production Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo might be able to travel for more than 500 km (310 miles) before needing to be plugged in. Nonetheless, with some 2-plus years before the first units of the car roll off the assembly line, the automaker still has enough time to work on all aspects.

    As long as they keep the concept design, they have a big winner in their hands.

      Judging by the sneak peak camoflauged Turismo, it’s pretty close!

    That front end is a train wreck.

  • The rear and side is actually quite okay, but not sure about the front.

    Got me all excited about an Electric future! Actually Tesla already has me there, but this is like a Happy Ending…

  • It might be named as the Taycan Cross Turismo.

    So this will sit between the Panamera and Cayenne? Why would Porsche need both sedans (and in Turismo) guise too. Seems stupid. This should have been an electric-928 replacement and the Panamera should have an all electric version.

    As is anyone didn’t expect this to happen. Another easy money for Porsche.
