With the Mission E Cross
Turismo, Porsche is unveiling the
concept study of an electrically driven cross utility vehicle (CUV) at the
Geneva Motor Show. The strengths of the four-door Cross Turismo include an
emotional design with striking off-road elements as well as an innovative
display and operating concept with touchscreen and eye-tracking control.
Measuring 4.95 metres in length, the concept vehicle has all-wheel drive and an
800-volt architecture, prepared for connection to the fast charging network.
It can also be charged by
induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage
system. Additionally, the debut of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS heralds the arrival
of one of the most radical high-performance sports cars today. It produces 520
hp (383 kW) from a four-litre capacity.
Two permanent magnet
synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of more than 600 hp (440 kW)
enable the Mission E Cross Turismo to accelerate to 100 km/h in less than 3.5
seconds and to reach a speed of 200 km/h in under 12 seconds. Furthermore, the
level of continuous power is unmatched by any other electric vehicle: multiple
accelerations are possible in direct succession without loss of performance.
