Porsche unveils Mission E Cross Turismo EV study at Geneva show


Separately, Porsche expects the cross-utility variant of its all-electric Mission E sports auto to attract at least 20,000 buyers if it gets approved for production, Steiner said. The production version of the Cross Turismo will be launched next year. With 600 hp, 0-60 miles per hour comes in just 3.5 seconds and a 155 miles per hour top speed.

Power is guaranteed on any surface with on-demand all-wheel drive with Porsche Torque Vectoring, which automatically distributes torque to individual wheels.

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is powered by two synchronous electric motors, one on each axle. The Mission E Cross Turismo uses an 800-volt architecture with inductive charging capability built in - fast charge network capability is a given. The total range is 400km per full charge and charging can also be done wirelessly via an induction mat - yes, like a smartphone.

Based off the Porsche Mission E, it comes with the same basic layout with dual electric motors, floorboard battery and sleek looks.

Design boss Michael Mauer said its "design mixes everyday usability with off road adventure".

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is for the most serious track rats.

Porsche says it can get a charge good for 250 miles of driving in just 15 minutes. "Our vehicle will be fast to drive, but also quick to recharge and able to replicate its performance time after time", said Porsche CEO Oliver Blume in the announcement. 100 km/h blasts past in 3.5 seconds, 200 km/h in 12 seconds.

Porsche says the 800V system, which is set to be a feature of all future Porsche EVs, provides a 62-mile range on a 4-minute charge.

The closely guarded concept vehicle is effectively a shooting brake version of the low-slung Mission E sedan that debuted at the 2015 Frankfurt show and will go on sale by 2020. The seats are definitely concept fodder (same story in the rear cargo area), but some minor changes would make for a production-ready interior.

A new Destination App launches with the Mission E Cross Turismo and connects with the vehicle for planning weekends trips, destination ideas, plotting routes and even selecting the chassis, music, climate control and lighting settings for certain sections.
