Porsche launches ugly all-terrain electric estate vehicle with 600bhp at Geneva

Porsche launches ugly all-terrain electric estate vehicle with 600bhp at Geneva

Porsche has unveiled a brand new electric vehicle concept at the Geneva Motor Show. This time, however, there will be no waiting to get behind the wheel, because as early as 2019, the production version of the current-carrying, nearly five-meter-long cross-utility vehicle should be on the road, which could be unsafe for United States electric auto giant Tesla.

Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of more than 600 hp (440 kW) accelerate the Mission E Cross Turismo to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.5 seconds and to 200 kmh (124 mph) in under twelve seconds.

Visually, the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo looks very similar to the Panamera Sport Turismo. Check out those 20-inch blue wheels. The Mission E Cross Turismo utilizes an 800-volt electric architecture which allows for fast-charging times of just 15 minutes for 400 km of range (an estimate based on the European cycle). Behold, the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept.

The driver gets their own instrument panel in a heads-up display system with eye-tracking monitored by cameras mounted in the rear-view mirror. The total range is 400km per full charge and charging can also be done wirelessly via an induction mat - yes, like a smartphone.

The chassis includes adaptive air suspension which increases ground clearance by 50 millimetres and all wheel steering to help with agility.

What's the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo like inside?

Non-bailable warrants issued against Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi
The official said the seized documents are "very important" and the chawl address is related to Nirav Modi's company. The special court was set up to hear matters under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

As radical as a Porsche SUV might once have seemed, however, that was nowhere near as radical as the decision to launch an all-electric sports auto, the Mission E barely than a year away from production.

How fast does it charge and what's the driving range?

It measures 4.95 metres in length and adds off road styling cues, thick wheel arch trims and huge off-road wheels for example. Given that "The road-ready Mission E Cross Turismo. uses elements that are close to production", we'd say they're not too far off. Odds on Geneva this time next year...

Adjustable straps in the cargo area can secure gear and create two load levels.

There's no specific timeline yet for the car's launch, though it'll likely be after the main Mission E's 2019 production date. "It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in unique style", said Porsche AG CEO Oliver Blume.

Porsche is set to do battle with Tesla for supremacy in the world of high-performance electric vehicles.
