Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept revealed at Geneva

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept revealed at Geneva

Those two motors combine to make 590 hp and can propel the Mission E from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. The Mission E Cross Turismo looks like a lifted Panamera Sport Turismo with the Mission E's face and some cladding borrowed from Audi.

The chassis includes adaptive air suspension which increases ground clearance by 50 millimetres and all wheel steering to help with agility. The Porsche's 800V system is equipped to accept this high rate of charge, which the company says is good for 250-miles NEDC in just over 15 minutes. When it comes to charging, the Mission E Cross Turismo can be charged using induction, at a charging station or using Porsche's home energy storage system.

As it turns out, Porsche's surprise is an all-electric crossover.

The electric crossover concept is about four inches longer than the original Mission E coupe.

Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of more than 600 hp (440 kW) accelerate the Mission E Cross Turismo to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.5 seconds and to 200 kmh (124 mph) in under twelve seconds.

When it eventually arrives, its sub-3.5-second 0-62mph time, acres of interior space and likely range of over 300 miles means it'll be going up against the Tesla Model X as well as the all-new, albeit slightly slower and presumably less costly Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV.

'Dreamers' in limbo as deadline passes
Senate debate on the issue has produced several bipartisan measures, but none passed a vote. Immigration-related demonstrations took place in several other cities, including NY .

The reveal follows Porsche's recent announcement to double EV investment, after sales of its plug-in hybrid cars boomed.

Inside, the instrument panel consists of an ultra-wide display, a curved driver instrument cluster and ambiance lighting.

One non-performance related feature which caught our attention is the "eye-tracking control" on the driver's dash. Edges are finished in Nordic Blue and the seats feature illuminated Porsche lettering. "It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in unique style", said Oliver Blume, Porsche CEO, in a statement.

It's not exactly an SUV either, although it rides higher than a normal vehicle.

The maker of the 911 sports auto would join a raft of companies working on designs for flying cars in anticipation of a shift in the transport market towards self-driving vehicles and on-demand digital mobility services.
