The wagon version of the recently unveiled Porsche Taycan is spotted doing some laps at the Nürburgring last week.
It’s been more than a year since we saw for the first time the Mission E Cross Turismo. The Concept was officially unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It was built on the previous Misson E Concept, that we now know as the Taycan.
At the reveal, Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG, said: “The Mission E Cross Turismo is an expression of how we envision the all-electric future. It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in a unique style.”
Last month, on September 4, Porsche finally unveiled their first electric car, the Taycan, after it was first presented at the 2015 International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany.
During the unveiling event in Niagara Falls, it was confirmed that the Mission E Cross Turismo was headed to production.
Indeed, Marc Ouayoun, President and CEO of Porsche Canada, confirmed the arrival of a wagon variant of the EV in Canada as early as 2020.
If we rely on the Mission E versus the final production-ready Taycan, the Taycan Cross Turismo should be more rugged looking. Instead of a “regular” wagon, like the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, it would be more like an Audi Allroad, thanks to wider flares.
Since the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is based on the Taycan we could see it getting the same trims designation. As for the price, Porsche hasn’t revealed anything about it but again, it should be priced similarly as its sibling.
You can see in the YouTube video above, shared by Carspotter Jeroen, the Taycan Cross Turismo mule being put through its paces over at the Nürburgring.
