Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo might be launched in late 2021

Porsche managed to drop quite a powerful bomb at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March when it unveiled the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo, a concept study of an electrically driven Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV). Being a concept, the path of the Mission E Cross Turismo into becoming a production electric CUV isn't fully assured. However, there is a reason expect its production version three years from now.

A report from Automobile Magazine, citing the supplier community, is saying that the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo will be launched into the market in late 2021. If this is true, then this means that newly unveiled BEV sibling of the Porsche Taycan – formerly known as the Porsche Mission E – would be plying the roads as a more practical version of the Taycan around three years from now. By then, the Mission E Crosss Turismo would directly compete against the Tesla Model S

Stefan Weckbach, head of Porsche’s global electrification efforts, has told Automobile Magazine during a test ride in one of the prototypes of the Porsche Mission E Crosss Turismo that the German sports car maker is working on the electric CUV concept with volume production in mind, although they have yet to receive an official go-ahead. He noted that with two motors -- one up front and another in the back -- an all-wheel drive system and an underfloor battery pack, the Mission E Crosss Turismo is also close to the final configuration. However, the Mission E Crosss Turismo still has some important elements that needed to be installed, like its air suspension system and rear-wheel steering.

Porsche described the Mission E Crosss Turismo as a four-door four-seater with striking off-road elements, as aimed at people who pursue their free time seeking outdoor adventures or playing sports. As a CUV, it boasts of a flexible interior that can accommodate sports equipment. The Mission E Cross Turismo is equally suitable for travelling, everyday life as well as adventure.

With a length of 4.95 meters, the Porsche Mission E Crosss Turismo is an all-wheel drive CUV with an 800-volt architecture. It can be recharged by connecting to a fast charging network, by induction at a charging station or at home through Porsche’s home energy storage system. It is propelled by two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSM) with a total system output of over 600 hp (440 kW).

At this level, the Mission E Cross Turismo can sprint from zero to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and achieve a speed of 200 km/h in less than 12 seconds. Its lithium-ion battery is developed to allow for a range of around 250 miles (400 km NEDC) in just over 15 minutes of charging.
