Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept previews EV crossover

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept previews EV crossover

Porsche is otherwise sparse on the specs, but it did reveal that the concept vehicle is 194.8 inches long.

Along with the Mission E Cross Turismo, Porsche also debuted the new 911 GT3 RS at the show that is also green, but only because that's the color they painted the show vehicle.

But it looks completely different than any other Porsche in the line-up. The electric Cross Turismo is much like today's Panamera Sport Turismo, but is jacked up and comes with unique design cues.

The interior is completely redesigned with a wing-shaped upper and lower dash. On the outside, the vehicle was fitted with matrix LED headlights, robust wheel arch protection and door sills, front spoiler, higher ground clearance and more. Blue alloy wheels with all-terrain tyres complete the look.

The all-wheel drive CUV is powered by two synchronous electric motors that cranks out over 600 hp (440 kW). The Porsche's top speed is estimated to be 155 miles per hour. Power is from a lithium-ion battery that is good for a driving range of about 250 miles after a 15-minute fast-charge. If not, Porsche is also planning to offer induction charging, and a home energy storage system, which can draw its energy from solar panels.

Also, making its debut in Geneva is the new 2019 911 GT3 RS. The sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h is said to be possible in less than 3.5 seconds, and you should be able to accelerate several times in succession without loss of performance.

Head of Porsche's battery electric vehicles added further comments last week in an in-house documentary series when asked why the Mission E's claimed 0-100km/h wasn't as fast as the United States vehicle. "The system is throttled", he said of the Tesla.

"Porsches need dramatic proportions in width-to-height". And that's not all. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) delivers active roll stabilisation, as you'd expect. The auto can be had with a Porsche e-bike.

The dial cluster retains a familiar Porsche feel either way, as the instrument cluster is angled towards the driver and includes three circular display graphics with digital content on TFT screens.

Despite being a strict four-seater, the E Cross has been configured to be remarkably practical. The boot floor also features a system of sliding rails and straps for securing loads, such as pushbikes or surfboards.

No production dates or prices for the Mission E Cross Turismo have been announced as yet.
