Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo revealed

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept also debuted, showing off a very impressive electric vehicle that's also a sort of rugged wagon. 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.

Porsche hasn't disclosed the weight of the 168.3-in. -long (4,950-mm) Mission E Cross Turismo concept, but says computer simulations indicate it will accelerate to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) in less than 3.5 seconds and reach 124 miles per hour (200 km/h) in less than 12.0 seconds.

Two electric motors combine to produce close to 600bhp and provide enough power to send the E Cross Turismo to 125mph in under 12 seconds. Check out those 20-inch blue wheels.

The Mission E Cross Turismo also has adaptive air suspension, which can both hunker down at speed and increase ground clearance by up to 50mm when needed (potholes and pavements hold no fear here).

Inside, the instrument panel consists of an ultra-wide display, a curved driver instrument cluster and ambiance lighting. The crossover can be charged inductively.

As it turns out, Porsche's surprise is an all-electric crossover.

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 U.S. vehicle.

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

"Operations are carried out using smart touch controls on the steering wheel".

The Mission E Cross Turismo features an innovative four-point indicator system and Porsche X-Sight technology applied to the front headlights. That essentially means it gets some folding rear seats as far as we can work out. The boot also has a rail system with removable straps for securing loads and fitting in one of Porsche's new e-bikes.

Exact range hasn't been confirmed, but if it's anything like the original Mission E concept it'll be around 310 miles.

One of Porsche's big selling points for its as-of-yet unproduced electric vehicles is repeatable performance: You'll be able to hit those acceleration and performance figures again and again without cooking anything onboard or forcing the auto to throttle down.
