According to the plans of the German company, the electric Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo wagon will debut at the end of 2020, and the Macan electric crossover will be shown in 2022.
Today, Porsche held its annual conference to remember what it achieved in 2019, as well as to announce plans for the near future. The company’s sales grew 10 percent to 280,800 units last year, the brand assembled 274,463 cars, or 3% more than in 2018. Over the next four years, the automaker intends to invest about 10 billion euros in the electrification of its lineup, launching new hybrid versions of existing models and purely electric vehicles. According to Porsche estimates, by the middle of the decade half of the company’s sales will come from PHEV (plug-in hybrid) and EV (electric car).
Currently, the main objective of the brand’s management is to introduce the production version of the electric station wagon, which was previously shown two years ago as the concept of the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo.
The serial version of the show car will be marked Taycan Cross Turismo, and its presentation will take place at the end of 2020. It is reported that after the station wagon we will be shown other versions of the Taycan electric model.
The 200-page published price list also briefly mentions the all-electric version of the next-generation Macan compact crossover. The novelty will be built on the platform Premium Platform Electric, and the launch on the market is scheduled for 2022. The PPE platform is being developed by Porsche and Audi. PPE will support both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive layout.
To prepare the plant in Leipzig for the production of electric Macan, Porsche invests more than 600 million euros. The company will produce electric vehicles along with models equipped with conventional powertrains.
