Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo 2019 confirmed

The all-electric Porsche Taycan will be getting a rugged, wagon-styled sibling, with the brand's Mission E Cross Turismo today confirmed for production.

Set to be the second pure EV from Porsche, the Taycan-based Mission E Cross Turismo was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March as a concept car that looked tantalisingly close to production.

Porsche's board has now voted to make that production a reality, saying the decision will add some 300 jobs at the brand's Zuffenhausen production facility.

Porsche is yet to reveal the engineering specifics of the four-door Cross Turismo - though surely the Taycan's twin-motor architecture provides some solid clues - but has promised a total 600ps (441kW) output, and a range of 500km.

Those numbers match those of the Taycan, which uses an electric motor at each axle to generate a staggering amount of thrust - enough to deliver a 0-100km/h sprint in "well under" 3.5 seconds, and to knock off 200km/h in just 12 seconds.

Like the Taycan, the Cross Turismo also has an 800-volt architecture, and Porsche is promising it will be ready for a still-being-developed fast-charging network.

Porsche is yet to confirm a production date, but the Mission E Cross Turismo would be expected to closely follow the Taycan, which is scheduled for a 2019 launch.
