Porsche takes more rugged ground with the Mission E Cross Turismo

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo previews 600-hp electric crossover arriving in 2019

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is a Fast-Charging, Low-Slung Wagon

This time, however, there will be no waiting to get behind the wheel, because as early as 2019, the production version of the current-carrying, nearly five-meter-long cross-utility vehicle should be on the road, which could be unsafe for United States electric auto giant Tesla.

Porsche claims the Turismo concept will hit 100 kmh, or 62.5 miles per hour, in "less than 3.5 seconds", and 200 kmh in "under 12 seconds".

Someone at Porsche must love wagons: following the Panamera Sport Turismo, we get the Mission E Cross Turismo jacked up wagon.

Specs don't deviate far from Porsche's previous outline and the all-wheel drive EV is powered by two electric motors that work synchronously to produce 440kW and motivate the vehicle to accelerate from 0-100km/h in under 3.5 seconds and 0-200km/h in under 12 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 250km/h. Check out those 20-inch blue wheels. 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. 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? The E Cross Turismo has also been developed to take advantage of proposed induction charging methods, where cables buried in the road surface allow the battery to be topped up on the move.

It's called the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo and will be launched in production form next year. The displays are operated using smart-touch controls on the steering wheel. The Porsche lettering illuminated in white is embedded in a three-dimensional cover with a circuit path graphic. The boot floor also features a system of sliding rails and straps for securing loads, such as pushbikes or surfboards. "It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in unique style", Blume said. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) is also on board, providing active roll stabilisation and preventing side tilt of the vehicle when cornering and reducing lateral rocking of the vehicle on uneven surfaces.
