Porsche Taiwan Ltd (台灣保時捷), a new joint venture between Porsche AG and Universal Motor Traders Ltd (永業), plans to launch the German automaker’s latest electric vehicles in Taiwan over the next two or three years, a company executive said yesterday.
“Our Mission E Cross Turismo cars are coming,” Porsche Taiwan chief executive officer Martin Limpert said at the inauguration of the company’s new office in Taipei, adding that electrification of vehicles will play an important role in the brand’s strategy.
Porsche last week unveiled a new concept version of its Mission E Cross Turismo, an all-electric crossover utility, at the Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle, which has an 800-volt architecture, is capable of accelerating to 100kph in less than 3.5 seconds.
The car can be charged by induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage system, Porsche said in a statement. [FULL STORY]
