The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. This Concept Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV) include an emotional design with striking off-road elements as well as an innovative display and operating concept with touchscreen and eye-tracking control.
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 series-produced car based on this model will celebrate its premiere next year.
Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo design
With a low-cut bonnet between heavily curved wings, the front of the Mission E Cross Turismo reveals its relationship to the iconic Porsche 911 sports car at first glance. Other distinctive design features are vertical air inlets in the front known as air curtains and matrix LED headlights. From the rear, the concept can immediately be recognized as a Porsche with its exclusively light grey metallic paintwork. In addition to its sporty design and air-channelling roof spoiler, the continuous light strip is a typical feature. A large panoramic glass roof extends from the windscreen to the boot lid, ensuring a generous sense of space.
The silhouette is defined by a sporty roofline that slopes off to the rear, which Porsche designers refer to as a ‘flyline’. The broad wings and three-dimensional side panels with air outlets behind the front wheels reinforce the sporty crossover character of the concept car, which is 1.99 meters wide.
The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo highlights a new era of electric mobility. Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of more than 600 hp (440 kW) allow 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.
