Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept previews EV crossover

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Makes Surprise Debut In Geneva

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo previews 600-hp electric crossover arriving in 2019

An all-wheel drive electric SUV concept, Porsche is gauging customer reaction to a Tesla Model X rival.

But it looks completely different than any other Porsche in the line-up.

The adaptive air suspension is capable of increasing the ground clearance by 50 mm and the power is sent to all four wheels via the all-wheel drive system with Porsche Torque Vectoring.

Head of Porsche's battery electric vehicles added further comments last week in an in-house documentary series when asked why the Mission E's claimed 0-100km/h wasn't as fast as the USA vehicle.

Italian defender Davide Astori is dead
The 31-year-old, who leaves behind a two-year-old daughter, was in Udine to prepare for Sunday's match against Udinese. His lone goal for the Azzurri came in a 2013 Confederations Cup third-place match against Uruguay.

Inside the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept.

Being a Porsche also means it's quick. The E Cross Turismo has also been developed to take advantage of proposed induction charging methods, where cables buried in the road surface allow the battery to be topped up on the move.

The Mission E Cross Turismo is a so-called cross utility vehicle (CUV), blending coupé and crossover style.

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is equipped with an 800-volt architecture, and the brand says a 400-kilometre range is possible after only 15 minutes of charging. The dash has a freestanding instrument cluster angled towards the driver with three circular display fields digitally displayed on TFT screens.

Shaquem Griffin's incredible combine continues with record-breaking 40-yard dash
On the other side of the coin, Griffin has more than proven he belongs on an National Football League roster. I couldn't believe he got the late invite here. "I watched his tape months ago and I was like, wow".

We're not so sure about the eye-tracking control, which uses a camera in the rear-view mirror to detect which instrument the driver is looking at. It measures 4.95 metres in length and adds off road styling cues, thick wheel arch trims and huge off-road wheels for example. The panel can be further changed using touch input controls mounted to the steering wheel. The boot also has a rail system with removable straps for securing loads and fitting in one of Porsche's new e-bikes.

It's not exactly an SUV either, although it rides higher than a normal auto.

Everything in the cabin has been created to be flexible enabling everyday practicality or, in the words of Porsche: "Modern load-carrying systems facilitate the transport of surfboards or a Porsche e-bike".

Further to the vehicle's reveal, Porsche hinted at future battery storage units that can be charged using domestic solar power that can then be put into the auto once home.
