It hasn’t been long since Porsche unveiled the Taycan, the company’s first ever EV. However, way before the launch of the Taycan, back in 2018, Porsche showed the world it’s very first EV concept and we were promised with a Taycan Cross Turismo. But to add to the growing list of thinks that makes 2020 the worst year in history of mankind, we are here yet with another sad news and it’s about the Taycan Cross Turismo. It’s confirmed to be delayed till 2021.
“Oliver Blume said “The change is no disadvantage for us; we just optimized the cycle plan,”
The Taycan Cross Turismo was expected to be unveiled at the end of this year but due to the ongoing pandemic Porsche was forced to move their rollout plan till 2021. Although it is a slight setback and covid-19 is most likely to be blamed but Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said “The change is no disadvantage for us; we just optimized the cycle plan,”
“the high demand of the Taycan has led them towards taking such a decision”
The claim of Porsche CEO might be correct! Despite the noble corona virus and the ongoing pandemic, Porsche is one of the few automakers who have made a profit and the company has received over $10,00 on per car sold during the beginning of the year. Porsche CEO says the high demand of the Taycan has led them towards taking such a decision and they’ve mainly done it for optimization rather than struggle.
So, when will the Taycan Cross Turismo finally come out? Well, according to Porsche they might continue to change for the sake optimization and we might not be able to see the Taycan Cross until early to late fall of 2021. But Blume says that Porsche “looks to the future with confidence” and recently there have been a rise in demand for Porsche vehicles amidst pandemic. Perhaps we might not have to wait for long for the Taycan Cross Turismo if the rest of the world bounces back at the same rate as China did and if the demand for Porsches become the same like it used to be during the beginning of the year.
