Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Is Stuttgart’s Electric Allroad

Porsche just unveiled the Mission E Cross Turismo at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, a concept study representing an electrified Cross Utility Vehicle, or CUV for short.

If you’re the type of person who loves outdoor activities, making your way to the ski slope, that sort of thing, then the Mission E Cross Turismo is meant for you, with its flexible interior and load-carrying systems. The concept measures 4.95 meters (16.2 ft) in length, boasts all-wheel drive and an 800-volt architecture.

Visually, it features a low-cut bonnet, vertical air inlets in the front, matrix LED headlights, robust wheel arch protection and door sills, an imposing front spoiler and increased ground clearance for some light off-roading.

What Porsche is trying to do here is paint a picture with regards to what a Turismo model with the characteristics of a crossover utility vehicle could look like if it was put into production. With utility in mind, the CUV’s backrests can be folded down and the boot features a rail system with adjustable and removable straps.

Since we’re discussing the interior, we need to point out how the dashboard emphasizes the concept’s width, and how the instrument panel is organized horizontally. Meanwhile, the freestanding instrument cluster is angled towards the driver and comes with three circular display graphics.

Other interior features include how the center console rises towards the dash panel visually, ambient lighting, the presence of Porsche Connect digital services, and the sporty and quite futuristic seats.

Yet, it’s the display technology that seems most impressive, with eye-tracking control available for the instrument cluster. Thanks to this system, this concept knows what the driver is looking at, bringing that particular image/display to the foreground, while others are made smaller.

With a total system output of over 600 HP (440 kW), the Mission E Cross Turismo can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3.5 seconds and reach 200 km/h (124 mph) in less than 12 seconds. According to Porsche, multiple accelerations are possible in direct succession without loss of performance, aided of course by the on-demand all-wheel drive system with Porsche Torque Vectoring. Also aiding driving dynamics is the adaptive air suspension which increases ground clearance by up to 50 mm (1.96 inches), while the Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) provides active roll stabilization.

The 800-volt architecture ensures that this concept’s lithium-ion battery can offer a range of around 250 miles (400 km), with a charge time of just over 15 minutes. Altogether, the Mission E Cross Turismo’s battery can be recharged using induction, a charging station or a Porsche home energy storage system.

      silence. wind whistling through the outback dunny.

  • Looking good like the Panamera siblings.

    Go home porsche,you are drunk.

    Rubbish
    NO ONE MANUFACTURER has matched Tesla at any time and none will within 5 years.
    Get used to rubbish “concepts” and “futuristic ideas” for quite some time. The E Volt (vomit?) only did 100 klms. No wonder GM CEO KLUTZ is spewing.

    • So you are like the more rough version of S3XY?

      • benT

        rough version ?

    • LWOAP

      Yet the I Pace is cheaper than the Model X while being virtually competitive. Take those fanboy glasses off.

  • Elpatore

    this is basically the production mission e, i really like it.

  • Honda NSX-R

    Macan replacement?

    • Leconte Dave

    • Matt

      Is it me or does this look larger/longer over the macan? Maybe it’ll fit between the 2 gas suvs?

      • Honda NSX-R

        I think you’re right, it does look a bit bigger than the Macan

  • PK

    gorgeous! the europeans are not playing around. tesla had their fun, now they’ll feel the wraith of their competitors within few years!

  • Elpatore

    This will push tesla (and every other manufacturer) to really get serious about design and quality, its all very exciting and competition is great for everyone.

  • CarCzarDesigner

    Within their product line, this really isn’t that appealing over their ICE models.

  • Nordschleife

    I think most would argue it was the first gen Cayenne but I have to agree with you.

  • Yilmaz Yasar

    Frog face. Yes money is important but doesnt mean you can product bullshit

  • Astonman

    They’ve had this prototype running around for over a year and everyone thought it was going to be the new design for a coupe version of the Cayene

  • LWOAP

    Porsche should definitely build this once the Mission E is in production. Maybe they could tweak the design.

  • SteersUright

    Doesn’t look very good to me.

  • TheHake

    Ohhhh man. If I HAVE to have an electric car, this must be it!
