Porsche Promises Taycan Cross Turismo In 2020

A new derivative of the Taycan, based on the Cross Turismo concept first unveiled two years ago, is set for an official reveal in late 2020. Porsche just concluded an annual conference that looks back at the past year and forecasts future trends for the company and the automotive industry as a whole. And things certainly look bright for the groundbreaking automaker out of Stuttgart, with an overall 10% increase in sales and positive development of future market stalwarts. Of course, the automotive landscape always shifts and changes from year to year, but the introduction of the all-electric Taycan represents something fresh and new within Porsche's already significant lineup. And now, a new derivative of the Taycan, based on the Cross Turismo concept first unveiled two years ago, is set for an official reveal in late 2020.

Total sales revenue increased by eleven percent to €28.5 billion with a 15.4% return. Meanwhile, Porsche's overall workforce swelled to a robust 35,429 employees. As in the past few years, Cayenne and Macan SUV sales led the lineup: Cayenne units sold increased by 29% to 92,055 while Macan sales improved 26 percent over 2018 to 99,944 units.

And the Taycan signals a major shift for Porsche, one that leads to projections of €10 billion ($10.7 billion) in development funding by 2024 for further increases in hybrids, electric cars, and overall digitization of the lineup.
That charge (pun intended) will include a new iteration being introduced to the company's offerings later in 2020, the Taycan Cross Turismo, a rugged station wagon version of the new electric super sedan. Also slated for a 2022 release is a fully electric Macan SUV, which will require a €600 million ($643 million) expansion of Porsche's Leipzig factory before production can begin in earnest.
