Robert and Jack look at the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo and the MG5 to decide which could be the most important electric estate car to help accelerate the transition to electric.
There are currently two electric estate cars on the market, and they couldn’t be more different.
The MG5 might not be the most exhilarating EV, but it was the first electric estate to come to market and pound for pound is great value. What it lacks in frills it makes up for in space, solid design and general comfort. It has a decent range and is easy to drive but by far the most remarkable aspect of the MG5 is it’s affordability.
In stark contrast, your second option for an electric estate is the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Turbo S! Not only does it have a significantly longer name than the MG5, it’s quite possibly the best electric car in the world (according to Jack). It’s luxurious, spacious, unbelievably quick and, unlike most super cars, it works well for families. The drawback? It’s expensive.
They might be very different but both will be equally important when it comes to accelerating the transition away from combustion-engined vehicles.
