Porsche has recently unveiled its plans to launch the Taycan Cross Tourismo.
Porsche hasn’t been too sneaky with releasing photos of its new project. This comes as a surprise for many car fanatics. With Porsche quickly developing its EV program, it is expected to hit the market some time next year.
Aside from the photos that Porsche has released, nobody actually knows what is going on inside the machine. The vehicle is shown to be a blend between the Mission E Cross Tourismo with the recently released Taycan.
This indicates a few things. The first is that the company is highlighting more sporty features for its EV line. With the proportions and features of a Taycan, the car needs to live up to the hype. This has also given way to more off-road capabilities. With its raised suspension and wider flares, the car looks like it can handle the off-roading challenges that its crossover line has utilized.
What else do we know about that car? Well the powertrain is pretty much up in the air at this point. MotorTrend expects it’ll be similar to the all-wheel-drive power Taycan 4S and Turbo. The two-motor setup will produce a whopping 522 horsepower. With an upgraded 93-kw battery pack, the car has the potential of 670 horsepower.
Porsche Taycan Range
One of the downsides for this model is the battery range. The original Taycan has the reach of approxmately 200 miles per charge. This is far below the competitive rate for many electric cars. Unfortunately with what we can see, the new version will have about the same.
As for the price, the car is projecting a price tag of $105,000 and up. This price works alongside the Porsche Taycan sedan. This might change, however. Porsche is currently working on less-expensive models.
We do not know about Porsche’s not-so-secret redesign, but we are excited that production is rolling out faster than we had originally expected.
