Geneva Auto Show 2018: Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo

Porsche introduced the world to the Mission E concept for the first time at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. There has been much talk about Porsche’s bid to quietly smash into the luxury EV market currently dominated by Tesla. The introduction of this latest Mission E Cross Turismo demonstrates that Porsche is not fooling about.

They are however, having a good time with exploring the possibility of expanding the Mission E family. The E Cross Turismo has active individuals in mind thanks to its AWD setup, distinctive side skirts and flared wheel arches but despite the more rugged design approach, the Cross Turismo still borrows heavily from the iconic 911.

The car is just shy of 2 meters wide, 5 meters long and 1.5 meters tall. This footprint entitles the cabin to a fair amount of room into which Porsche’s infused an impressive amount of utility, and technology, and space for four passengers and gear. The instrument panel is very wide and narrow and supports a very modern digital interpretation of Porsche’s legendary three circular gauges.

Mission E Cross Turismo

The important stuff lies in the how the Mission E Cross Turismo will move. Its pair of synchronous electric motors and a total system output of over 600-horsepower catapult the car to 100 km/h in only 3.5 seconds, although we think it’ll be quicker than that. The car also features all-wheel steering, an adaptive air suspension that raises the car by an extra 50mm and a range of roughly 400 km.

Don’t be fooled: This is an electric, AWD, hyper-fast and sexy station wagon from Porsche.
