Porsche had already confirmed to us in October that the concept presented at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 Mission E Cross Turismo is produced in series. Today, the brand confirms that this second electric model will be called Taycan Cross Turismo will be launched at the end of 2019, Either shortly after the exit of the Taycan limousine.
This Taycan Cross Turismo should logically be very close to the Taycansince it will be the secondary hunting ground, as will the Panamera Sport Turismo compared to the Panamera sedan. We can therefore rely on equivalent features and performance (0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 s and autonomy of more than 500 km logged on to Taycan).
Already tested over millions of kilometers
Porsche also tells us that the tests for this new vehicle are already in full swing and the Taycan Cross Turismo has covered more than ten million kilometers … handy! To save time in developing a model, The brand primarily develops virtual prototypes, This allows some systems or components to be tested very early, even before real prototypes are created.
This digitization of development is giving engineers new opportunities and enabling them Quickly review the characteristics of a vehicle as a whole, Thanks to this process, the engineers were able to virtually drive the Taycan on the Nürburgring seven months before the actual prototype. Thus, the total cost of vehicle development is greatly reduced.
