Mission E Cross Turismo Concept Revealed
Porsche has unveiled a new off-road concept vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show, called the Mission E Cross Turismo. Porsche say that the vehicle is already fit for the road and that a series-produced car based on the concept model will launch in 2019. The electrically powered design study is being labelled a ‘cross utility vehicle’ (CUV), and it takes more than a few cues from the upcoming Mission E, at 4.95 metres it is equal in length to a current Panamera saloon.
The new all-wheel drive vehicle features two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSM) producing 600hp, this allows it to accelerate to 62mph in less than 3.5 seconds and onto a top speed of more than 120mph in under 12 seconds. The Mission E Cross Turismo has an 800-volt architecture, ensuring it is able to be connected to the fast charging network or the Porsche home energy storage system. In addition, it features an innovative touchscreen display and operating system with eye-tracking control technology.
“The Mission E Cross Turismo is an expression of how we envision the all-electric future. It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in a unique style. Our vehicle will be fast to drive, but also quick to recharge and able to replicate its performance time after time,” said Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG.
