Porsche takes the wraps off the concept study of an all-electric Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV) at the Geneva Motor Show. The Mission E Cross Turismo is based on Porsche’s debuting electric vehicle, the Mission E, which is due in 2019.
The Mission E Cross Turismo builds on the Mission E concept Porsche did put on display at the 2015 International Motor Show in Frankfurt. The four-door vehicle couples a spacious interior with off-road elements. It measures 4.95 metres and provides all-wheel drive. Two electric motors with an output of 440 kW allow the Mission E Cross Turismo to complete the sprint to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and to reach a speed of 200 km/h in under 12 seconds.
Regarding the battery set-up, Porsche claims that “the 800-volt architecture of the vehicle ensures that the lithium-ion battery can be charged for a range of around 250 miles (400 kilometres – according to the NEDC) in just over 15 minutes.” Charging options shall range from induction or charging stations to home energy storage systems.
Porsche is steadily electrifying its own brand. Just recently, the German carmaker announced to double its investments in the development and production of new EVs and HEVs. Serial production of the OEM’s debut EV, the Mission E, shall reach an initial output of 20,000 units per year. The production location will be situated at the headquarters in Zuffenhausen.
