Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept

During Porsche's show press conference, company CEO Oliver Blume described the new concept as a vehicle to "fuse Mission E design with Panamera Sport Turismo off-road touches". Besides showing off the new design, Porsche also highlighted how flexible the concept is. With that much power, the concept is able to reach 62 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds.

Before Porsche debuts its first-ever production electric vehicle in 2019, the Stuttgart automaker today revealed the concept of a new crossover variant of the upcoming Tesla-fighter.

While Porsche had been using its shapely Mission E fastback sedan to build hype for its upcoming EVs, it seems that it will lead the charge into production with this...lifted wagon? A Porsche e-bike could also be purchased that would suit perfectly with the Mission E Cross Turismo's, ah, mission. Porsche is back with another electric concept that is essentially a lifted SUV wagon version of the Mission E Performance sedan called the Porsche Mission E Cross.

If a high-performance Porsche EV sounds good, but you're one who likes to travel, play sports and are into the outdoors (Porsche's words), the Mission E Cross Turismo is for you.

Also, making its debut in Geneva is the new 2019 911 GT3 RS. "It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in unique style", said Oliver Blume, Porsche CEO, in a statement.

The larger and more capacious Cross Turismo version of the Mission E offers similar performance: Porsche quotes a 0-to-62-mph time of less than 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 155 miles per hour. With the latter, it will take less than 4 minutes to reach enough charge for 100km, and can manage of range of 400km after 15 minutes of charging.

Despite being a strict four-seater, the E Cross has been configured to be remarkably practical.

The Cross Turismo concept ushers in fearless new electrified world, aimed at wealthy urban-dwelling yuppies who crave performance, luxury, technology and the ability to trek across any terrain.

By using 800-volt electronics inside the auto, Porsche reckons this new fast-charging network can replenish the batteries in just 15 minutes - and the Cross Turismo's full range is expected to be around 250 miles.
