Porsche has always been at the forefront of automotive technology, and the company’s latest debut at the Geneva Motor Show emphasizes that. The Mission E Cross Turismo combines the strengths of a Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV) with the latest in electric car technology and distinctive Porsche design.
With a low hood between powerfully curved fenders, the front of the Mission E Cross Turismo has ties to the Porsche 911. The vertical air intakes at the front, known as “air curtains,” provide one of the striking design features. Matrix Design LED headlights represent another style highlight. 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.
A highlight of the Mission E Cross Turismo is a new display and control concept. Intuitive operation and information such as the head-up display optimally positioned in the driver’s field of vision enhance the driving experience. And thanks to the new connectivity solutions, the vehicle can also be perfectly integrated into a digital lifestyle.
Other features include two synchronous electric motors with a system output of over 600 hp (440 kW) and all-wheel steering for the ultimate in agility and handling no matter the road – or off-road – conditions.
