Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo
- March 21, 2018
Spark for the future: The presentation of the Mission E Cross Turismo from Porsche at the Geneva Motor Show is a concept study of an electrically-powered Cross-Utility Vehicle (CUV). This all-rounder is targeted at people with an active lifestyle who like to spend their leisure time travelling, doing sports or other outdoor activities.
Thanks to the all-wheel drive, any ski piste can be reached with ease, while the flexible interior has plenty of space for sports equipment of all kinds and the modern mounting systems make it easy to transport surfboards or a Porsche e-bike.
The advantages of this four-door four-seater include an emotional design with striking off-road elements as well as the new display and control concept with touchscreen displays and eye tracking. The 4.95-m-long concept vehicle is ready for charging on the 800-volt fast-charge network, and can also be charged via induction, via a charging dock or via a Porsche home energy management system. The road-ready Mission E Cross Turismo is a continuation of the Mission E study that Porsche presented at the International Motor Show (IAA) in 2015.
A low bonnet between powerfully curved wings: Even at first glance, the front of the Mission E Cross Turismo clearly reveals its ties with the sports car icon Porsche 911. The vertical air intakes at the front, known as “air curtains”, provide one of the striking design features. Matrix LED headlights represent another style highlight. The typical Porsche four-point daytime running lights have been developed into narrow, three-dimensional glass elements.
Embedded in four floating wings, these lights also feature the new four-point indicator. In addition, the vehicle benefits from the Porsche X-Sight high-performance high beam. Off-road design elements include the rugged wheel arches and door sills, the striking look of the front spoiler and rear apron, and the increased ground clearance.
The silhouette is marked by the sporty roofline that tapers towards the rear – termed the “flyline” by the Porsche designers. This feature echoes the rear of the Panamera Sport Turismo. The dynamic design of the side windows is just as typical for the Porsche style.
The broad wings and three-dimensional side walls with air outlets behind the front wheels reinforce the sporty crossover character of the 1.99-m-wide concept vehicle. Distinctive side skirts with an off-road look and 20-inch wheels with 275/40 R 20 tyres are among the vehicle's other defining features.
The study with its exclusive Light Grey Metallic paint is also immediately recognisable as a Porsche from the back. In addition to the sporty, flow-through roof spoiler, the vehicle also features the traditional, full-length light strip. The Porsche lettering illuminated in white comprises glass letters and is embedded within a three-dimensional cover with a circuit path graphic.
The “E” in the “Porsche” lettering pulsates when the vehicle is charging, and the circuit paths are brought to life by light pulses, giving customers an impressively tangible experience of the vehicle’s energy flow. The large panoramic glass roof extending from the windscreen to the tailgate delivers a generous feeling of spaciousness.
The powertrain: Sporty e-performance thanks to over 600 hp
Two permanently excited synchronous motors with a system output of over 600 hp (440 kW) accelerate the Mission E Cross Turismo to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and to 200 km/h in under twelve seconds. This performance is in addition to a continuous power level that is unprecedented among electric vehicles: Multiple jump starts are possible in succession without loss of performance.
The demand-controlled all-wheel drive with Porsche Torque Vectoring, which automatically distributes torque to the individual wheels, transfers the power to the road.
Charging: Fast and effortless
The 800-volt architecture in the vehicle ensures that the lithium-ion battery is charged for a range of approximately 400 kilometres (based on the NEDC) in around 15 minutes. The concept vehicle allows flexible charging both on the move and at home, and is compatible with the fast-charging network that is being established on European roads as part of the IONITY joint venture.
At the workplace, the Mission E Cross Turismo can be charged via induction technology, and at home either a charging dock or Porsche home energy management system can be used to recharge the battery. The latter option can be combined with the home’s own photovoltaic system to recharge using solar energy.
