There are full-electrics on the market now from major manufacturers (Ford Focus Electric, Chevy Bolt, etc....), but considering the type of vehicles you are used to, these would probably be way too downmarket for you. I don't think you would be happy wth them.

Remember the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept - the jacked-up, 600bhp electric estate car? Well, there’s good news. Porsche has confirmed it’ll arrive in showrooms towards the end of 2020.

Porsche CEO Oliver Blume has also confirmed that it will take the name ‘Taycan Cross Turismo’ as it joins the new family of electric-powered Porsches – headed by the uber-cool Taycan saloon for which there have already been over 20,000 pre-orders.

Whereas the saloon does pure style though, the Cross Turismo is all about lifestyle. Porsche describes it as a cross-utility vehicle (CUV), whatever that means. Here’s hoping that the chunky tyres and black plastic arches make production though, it’s the ultimate unexpected-off-roader look.

As well as its name, the Taycan Cross Turismo is likely to share a drivetrain with its brother. That means front and rear electric motors to drive all four wheels, 0-62mph in around 3.5 seconds and 0-125mph in 12. Easily enough pace to trouble the old-schoolers in their petrol-powered 911s then.

With a range of over 300 miles and the ability to reach 80 per cent charge in just 15 minutes the Cross Turismo will easily manage a days’ adventuring, too, although from the inside expect pure luxury and serenity all the way.

Porsche is serious on electric power then. In fact, with a promise to invest more than €6billion in electro-mobility by 2022 and €15billion in new products in total up to 2023, it’s clearly taking the fight to Tesla in the luxury EV sector.

Excited for the future? Check out what happened when our very own Rory Reid drove the Mission E Cross Turismo concept by clicking these blue words, then gather together any loose change to get that down-payment in place.
