Geneva 2018: Porsche Unveils The Mission E Cross Turismo Concept

The Mission E Cross Turismo gets two permanent magnet synchronous motors with a system output of more than 600 horses. This enables the Mission E Cross Turismo to accelerate to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds

With the Mission E Cross Turismo, Porsche is unveiling the concept study of an electrically driven cross utility vehicle (CUV). The company showcased the car at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and just goes to show how far the company has come in making an electric car a reality. The E Cross Turismo, looks great and does not have that concept feel to it. It’s very close to something you’ll see on actual roads but it is as production ready as it gets yet Porsche wants to still call it a concept.

The Porsche Cross Turismo includes an emotional design with striking off-road elements as well as an innovative display and operating concept with touchscreen and eye-tracking control. It measures in just under 5 metres and has all-wheel drive and an 800-volt architecture, prepared for connection to the fast charging network. It can also be charged by induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage system.

The Mission E Cross Turismo gets two permanent magnet synchronous motors with a system output of more than 600 horses. This enables the Mission E Cross Turismo to accelerate to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and to reach a speed of 200 km/h in under 12 seconds. Furthermore, the level of continuous power is unmatched by any other electric vehicle: multiple accelerations are possible in direct succession without loss of performance.

“The Mission E Cross Turismo is an expression of how we envision the all-electric future. It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in unique style. Our vehicle will be fast to drive, but also quick to recharge and able to replicate its performance time after time,” says Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG. The Mission E Cross Turismo, which is already fit for the road, builds on the concept of the Mission E study presented by Porsche at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA). The production version of the car will be launched next year.
