Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is the concept study of an electric Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV), unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. With all-wheel drive, the car is designed for people with an active, outdoor lifestyle.

The concept vehicle also has an 800-volt architecture, prepared for connection to the fast charging network. It can also be charged by induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage system. The road-ready Mission E Cross Turismo builds on the Mission E study Porsche demonstrated at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) and uses elements that are close to series production.

Porsche says that the Mission E Cross Turismo presents a picture as to what a Turismo model with features of a crossover utility vehicle could look in series production.

Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of more than 600 hp (440 kW) allow the Mission E Cross Turismo to accelerate to 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds and to reach a speed of 124 mph in under 12 seconds.

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

The all-wheel steering contributes to the agility and stability of the vehicle. Adaptive air suspension increases the ground clearance by up to 50 millimetres. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) provides active roll stabilisation and prevents side tilt of the vehicle when cornering.

The 800-volt architecture of the vehicle ensures that the lithium-ion battery can be charged for a range of around 250 miles (NEDC) in just over 15 minutes. Charging of the concept vehicle is flexible and can take place on the road or at home. The vehicle is prepared for connection to the fast charging network, which is being created on arterial roads as part of the IONITY joint venture. Additionally, the battery of the Mission E Cross Turismo can be replenished using induction, a charging station or a Porsche home energy storage system. The latter is compatible with solar power generated by domestic photovoltaic systems.
