The Mission E Cross Turismo presented by Porsche at the Geneva Motor Show, is a concept study of an electrically-powered “Cross-Utility Vehicle.” The demand-controlled all-wheel drive easily handles varied weather conditions for practical year-round use. The concept vehicle, which is 194.8 inches long, uses 800-volt fast-charging and can also be charged via induction or a charging dock and integrates seamlessly with a Porsche home energy management system.
Two synchronous electric motors with a system output of over 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. This performance is in addition to a continuous power level that allows for multiple launches in succession without losing performance, which is unprecedented among electric vehicles.
The front of the Mission E Cross Turismo is a nod to the design of the Porsche 911. The typical Porsche four-point daytime running lights have been developed into narrow, three-dimensional glass elements. Embedded in four floating fenders, these lights also feature the new four-point turn signal. Off-road design elements include rugged wheel arches and door sills, a striking front spoiler and rear fascia, and a ground clearance indicative of the ability to travel on and off paved roads. The body of the car sports Light Grey Metallic paint, the Porsche lettering illuminated in white is embedded in a three-dimensional cover with a circuit path graphic. The large panoramic glass roof extending from the windshield to the tailgate delivers a generous feeling of spaciousness.
Inside, the instrument panel accentuates the width of the vehicle with a wing-shaped top and bottom section. The dashboard has a clear horizontal arrangement with a wide display for the driver and front passenger and the door panels feature 3D elements with a structured surface.
A highlight of the Mission E Cross Turismo is a new display and control concept. The head-up display optimally positioned in the driver’s field of vision enhances the driving experience. The instrument cluster is comprised of virtual fields. Using a camera in the interior mirror, the eye-tracking system can recognize where the driver is looking. The displays that the driver is interested in are then moved to the foreground, while the others are reduced into the background accordingly as a result of looking away from them. The displays are operated using smart-touch controls on the steering wheel.
The vehicle settings, interior climate, and ambient lighting are all automatically adjusted to the wishes of the occupants and the respective driving situation.The driver can also access a variety of information and adjust settings away from the vehicle: Customization options from the air-conditioning system to navigation can be set in advance via a tablet, smartphone, or smartwatch.
The 800-volt architecture in the vehicle ensures that the lithium-ion battery is charged for an NEDC range of approximately 250 miles (400 kilometers) in around 15 minutes. The concept vehicle allows flexible charging both on the move and at home, and is compatible with the fast-charging network that is being established on European roads as part of the IONITY joint venture. At home or the workplace, the Mission E Cross Turismo can be charged via induction technology.
