Porsche’s supervisory board has given the green light to series production of the Mission E Cross Turismo.

The automaker said it would create 300 additional jobs at its Zuffenhausen base for production of the vehicle, presented as a concept at the 2018 Geneva show last March.

“The road-ready concept… was a highlight in Geneva and was well received by both visitors to the show and the media,” Porsche said in a statement.

The four-door has 800-volt architecture prepared fast charging networks. System output is 600hp and range 500km/300 miles (NEDC test cycle).

The vehicle is a derivative of the Taycan and this first pure electric Porsche will go on sale in 2019.

The parallel introduction of the Taycan is generating 1,200 new jobs in Zuffenhausen, the automaker noted.

“Great importance is attached to sustainability in production, which will therefore be carbon-neutral,” Porsche said, reiterating it plans to spend over EUR6bn on electromobility by 2022.
