Taycan is now, Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo delayed.

Porsche's combination of wagon versatility and EV efficiency is delayed.

The Porsche Taycan was supposed to get a long-roof sibling later this year. According to Bloomberg, the automaker has delayed the Taycan Cross Turismo till 2021. Because of strong sales of the Taycan saloon in harsh conditions for many of its competitors. The Cross Turismo is now on sale earlier this year. It will be the first electric luxury station wagon available for buyers, a segment that Porsche’s competitors have ignored until now.

The Taycan Cross Turismo, as shown in spy photos, will combine the primary form of the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo concept with the body-work of the production of the Taycan saloon. As a result, don’t expect some concept car elements, including its fog lights. However, other elements, such as the fender flares and raised ride height, will almost appear on Cross Turismo’s production. We also believe that Porsche will sell a Taycan Turismo that is a less off-road vehicle, related to the Panamera version. Unluckily, this unclad model might not make it to the U.S. Market.

Regardless, the Turbo saloon and Taycan 4S’ powertrains will be carried over to the electric hauler. The former features 2 motors that produce 522 hp with 79 kWh battery and 562 hp with a 93-kilowatt-hour package. On the other hand, the Turbo has up to 670 horsepower and is only available with a larger battery.

The Cross Turismo’s driving range should be similar to that of its saloon counterparts, which have EPA ratings of 201 and 203 miles for Turbo models with the 93-kilowatt-hour pack. Unfortunately, we don’t expect the Taycan Turbo S’s approximately 750 horsepower powertrain to make its way to the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo.

We are excited to know about the Taycan Turismo’s powertrain and more details later this year. You never know. Perhaps Porsche will also surprise us with a┬áPorsche Taycan Turismo.
