Porsche used its presence at the Geneva Motorshow to showcase its concept for the crossover version of its Mission E sportscar. This takes Porsche further down the electrification route and brings the four-door format to the platform.
With all-wheel drive and the systems 800 volt architecture, the Mission E Cross Turismo also features the platform’s two permanent magnet synchronous motors and a 600hp output that keeps it in the class of a sports SUV.
The cabin gets a new interpretation of the Porsche touch screen control along with eye-tracking.
‘The Mission E Cross Turismo is an expression of how we envision the all-electric future. It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in unique style. Our vehicle will be fast to drive, but also quick to recharge and able to replicate its performance time after time,’ says Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG. The Mission E Cross Turismo, which is already fit for the road, builds on the concept of the Mission E study presented by Porsche at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA). The series-produced car based on this model will celebrate its premiere next year.
Porsche also showed its new 911 GT3 RS with a 4.0-litre flat-six 520hp naturally aspirated engine which revs up to 9,000rpm. 0-100 km/h performance is 3.2 seconds and top speed is 312 km/h.
