We've launched our second video with some important info about the Taycan Cross Turismo. Give it a watch and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel here.

Porsche surprised everyone when they announced they’d actually put the Taycan Cross Turismo into production. Even more surprising is just how soon it will arrive. Porsche showed the Mission E Cross Turismo as a prototype over a year ago and after confirming it for production, they announced the official name would be the Taycan Cross Turismo. We expect that much like the sedan we’ll get a standard model and one wearing the Turbo badge. To be clear, it won’t be turbocharged, but it will be a higher performance version. Look for the standard model to deliver around 400-hp with the Turbo model making closer to 600-hp with a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a ¼ mile sprint in the 12 second range. Of note, these numbers are quite similar to those of the Panamera. What makes the Taycan and Cross Turismo unique among EVs is its charge time. Total range isn’t overly impressive at 310 miles, but thanks to new fast-chargers that Porsche will be rolling out, they will be able to regain 248 miles of range in just 15 minutes. To put that into perspective, that’s an extra 60 miles of range in just 4 minutes!

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo RELEASE DATE
While the Taycan sedan will debut in September of 2019 and deliveries will take place in January of 2020, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume has confirmed the Taycan Cross Turismo Release Date will be in Q4 of 2020.

Edit: It now looks like Porsche is estimating a Taycan 0-60 time of well below 3.5 seconds! I'll be curious to see just how low it is!

Have a feeling that the CT might end up being the more popular version of the Taycan. Just based on the numbers that small crossovers are seeing, a lot of buyers want something that rides a bit higher and offers more body protection.

That would NOT surprise me.

Every report I read has SUVs as higher even in a market when overall car sales are down.

The Macan and Cayenne have become the bread and butter models for Porsche. This is why we are already hearing about electric crossovers, because that success will likely translate over to this new segment.

I think the fact that Panamera sales have stood strong even into 2019 is strong proof that Porsche needs to push harder in the SUV/CUV/Crossover segments.
Another fact, they released a Cayenne Coupe. Ever since being revealed its been getting very positive feedback.
