Porsche introduced its first wagon this model year with the Panamera Sport Turismo and surprised us all by offering it to USA buyers as well.

While an all-electric Macan is still yet to be officially announced by the automaker, it is now certain that it will mass-produce a second electric sports auto: the Mission E Cross Turismo, which was first presented as a concept vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018.

The Taycan sedan version will launch in 2019, so the Sport Turismo wagon could follow it in 2020 - or it might even debut at the same time. Porsche's rollout plan for the Taycan includes billions of dollars of investment in fast charging infrastructure to better compete with Tesla's rapidly-expanding network. The introduction of the Taycan is generating 1,200 new jobs in Zuffenhausen. With a full charge, the system promises a range of 500km on the NEDC test cycle.
The Taycan family will consist of the Carrera, Carrera S and Turbo versions. Thus, the price tag of new items will start from 80 thousand Euro.More news: Assange sues Ecuador for violating 'fundamental rights'
