Electrify America to double number of EV chargers as wave of electric vehicles come to market

Electrify America, the entity set up by Volkswagen as part of its settlement with U.S. regulators over its diesel emissions cheating scandal, said it will double the number of its electric vehicle fast charging stations in the United States and Canada by the end of 2025. The commitment, if successful, means 1,800 fast charging stations — or 10,000 individual chargers — will be installed and operational by that time. The vast majority (some 1,700 stations) will be installed in the United States w...

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo EPA range goes official

Photo credit: Porsche U.S.-bound Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo models are about to arrive and head to customers, so we now know the EPA-estimated range that owners will get on their new models. It’s right in the ballpark of what we would expect from a car like this, with this utility, but it does come with a caveat that might make it more enticing. All Taycan Cross Turismos are 4 models, with all wheel drive. The base Taycan Cross Turismo 4 is rated at 215 miles. Coincidentally, that’s the same ...

Porsche Looks On Track For A Record Sales Year After Impressive Q1

Porsche prides itself on being among the most profitable automobile manufacturers in the world, and that trend continues in the first quarter of 2021. Revenue in Q1 2020 was a bit rough, thanks to dealerships, factories, and logistics shutting down in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Revenue from car sales increased year-over-year from 6 billion euros to 7.7 billion euros, and return on sales improved from 9.5 percent to 16.2 percent. Yeah, that's pretty impressive. “We have started the ye...

Here’s What Makes The Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo So Great

Porsche recently invited FlatSixes to drive its latest creation, the all-electric Taycan 4 Cross Turismo. As great as the standard Taycan sedan is, we actually prefer the wagon version, as it gives up very little in dynamic enjoyment, while providing much more daily livability for you and your family. In addition to hauling butt, you can also haul everything you need for a long weekend away, or even a cross-country road trip for four adults and maybe even a dog. Other companies are trying to bu...

Porsche makes its case for an all-electric Taycan wagon

Porsche has always gone its own way when it comes to creating new vehicles. It is, after all, the company that continues to stick to the wacky idea that putting the weight of an engine in the rear of a sports car is a great idea. (It is!) So, bucking the crossover trend to create an all-electric, soft-roading wagon with just 20 more millimeters of clearance than their popular electric Taycan sedan isn’t out of character for the brand. Instead, it’s another example of how Porsche approaches elect...

The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is the first electric station wagon available in Europe

Porsche is presenting the Taycan, the first electric station wagon available as standard. Porsche itself calls the model a "CUV" and had already presented a study of the new model in 2018. The designers have hardly changed the familiar Taycan interior. The new model comes with an all-wheel drive as standard and is almost as fast as the normal Taycan. Market launch for the Taycan Cross Turismo, which is not exactly inexpensive, is next summer. Visit the Business section of Insider for more sto...

2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo: Powerful Turbo S Variant, New Gravel Mode & More

If you want your daily driver to look like an SUV, sedan, elongated coupe, and a wagon all at once, then look no further than the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. Regardless of what you call it, don’t call the Taycan Cross Turismo late to dinner. And while that expression is often used colloquially, we might opt for it in the literal sense here. The Taycan Cross Turismo will never be late to anything because it is (in the words of my colleague Tony Borroz) fast with a capital F! There are four ...

Porsche’s Taycan Cross Turismo EV isn’t as confusing as it looks

German automaker Porsche is putting its Taycan Cross Turismo through its paces in final testing before it goes on sale next year. It sounds like everything is going well, but one thing is bothering me, well, it’s not one thing, it’s the entire thing. The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo seems more confused than a chameleon at a carnival. First off, is its name. The Taycan part makes sense. It’s what Porsche called its high-performance EV, so that needs no explaining. This car is also an EV. I think ...

Porsche Takes Stake in Rimac

To bolster its EV strategy, Porsche is taking a 10 percent stake in Rimac, the Croatian technology and electric sports car company. “We feel that Rimac’s ideas and approaches are extremely promising, which is why we hope to enter into close collaboration with the company in the form of a development partnership,” said Porsche Finance and IT boss Lutz Meschke in a statement.

Porsche Taycan Is New Name for Mission E

Porsche debuted the Mission E concept more than two years ago, but when the electric sports car goes into production, it will feature a different name. Today, Porsche revealed that name is Taycan, pronounced “tie-con.” Taycan translates roughly to “lively young horse,” referencing the leaping steed in the Porsche crest. Explaining the new moniker, Porsche Chairman Oliver Blume said in a statement, “Our new electric sports car is strong and dependable; it’s a vehicle that can consistently cover l...

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Prototype Review: Mission Accomplished

I’m liquidly gliding through the winding corners in the hills above Malibu. To my right is Stefan Weckbach, Porsche’s EV mastermind behind the Mission E Cross Turismo I’m driving—which happens to be the exact same development mule that made its debut on the show stand in Geneva. We’re doing about 45 mph, sandwiched by an escort of light-bar cop cars to shield us from the churning 5 p.m. Friday traffic. Our windows are down because the Mission E’s huge glass canopy has no UV protection—and, well,...

Porsche Celebrates 70 Years of Its First Sports Car, the 356

Porsche is using a milestone birthday this year to pay tribute to its storied past. The iconic sports car brand will celebrate its 70th anniversary on June 8, marking the day the first-ever Porsche 356 was registered as an automobile. The tiny-engined 356 is not only Porsche’s first sports car, it remains one of the most legendary sports cars ever, and so the automaker celebrates its birthday as the birth of the brand. 70 years ago Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche turned his dream of a sports car into...

Why Porsche is Sexier and Brainier Than You Realize

Once upon a time, “high tech” in a sports car meant how much faster engineers could tune the vehicle to go, or how a new suspension system would help it maintain proper ground clearance, even around hairpin turns. These days, automakers are testing a staggering array of technological innovations, advancing mobility and the interface between passenger and the car—not where the rubber meets the road (or how quickly). Augmenting Reality Consider, for example, how Porsche has been elevating the c...

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Is the Weirdest Thing in Geneva Right Now!

While we were expecting to see a new version of Porsche’s Mission E electric concept at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, we definitely weren’t expecting this thing. The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is a concept Cross Utility Vehicle powered by electricity. And that’s great. Our question is why does it look like an AMC Pacer? This, maybe, is Porsche’s idea of what an off-road Panamera should look like. But as is always the case with these guys, when they don’t spend much time on design it on...

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is a Fast-Charging, Low-Slung Wagon

Elon Musk will have to reckon with a new fast gun in town when it comes to battery-powered SUVs. When Porsche brings its first pure electric vehicle to market in late 2019, it will bear a strong resemblance to the Mission E Cross Turismo concept unveiled at the Geneva auto show. This is the second iteration of Porsche’s Mission E concept—which bowed in 2015 as a four-passenger sports car with suicide doors and promises to beat Tesla with more than 600 horsepower, 440 kW and an 800-volt system...
