  • Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo previews 600-hp electric crossover arriving in 2019

After unveiling the Porsche Mission E sedan at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show, the German brand is getting closer to launching fully electric powertrains with the presentation of the Mission E Cross Turismo concept at this year's Geneva Auto Show. 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 says the Cross Turismo will be able to accelerate to 62mph from a standing start in 3.5-seconds and will go on to a maximum speed of 155mph.

Porsche CEO Oliver Blume described the model as a auto to "fuse Mission E design with Panamera Sport Turismo off-road touches".

Because the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo will be produced as a global vehicle, a production version will invade American shores after the Mission E sedan hits showrooms in 2019. The concept features 20-inch wheels with relatively modest 275 section tyres.

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is an all-terrain electric wagon. The same can be said for the extra-wide instrument panel, with touchscreen displays for the driver and front passenger. It can also be charged by induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage system.

There's also an air-channelling roof spoiler, and continuous light strip at the rear - both now established Porsche design cues.

No plans to produce the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo have been confirmed.

Dynamics are taken care of on-demand all-wheel drive with Porsche Torque Vectoring, and all-wheel steering.

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

The Mission E Cross Turismo looks like a lifted Panamera Sport Turismo with the Mission E's face and some cladding borrowed from Audi. The Porsche lettering illuminated in white is embedded in a three-dimensional cover with a circuit path graphic. Additionally, the boot features a rail system with adjustable and removable straps. Porsche calls it a "Cross-Utility Vehicle" and says that it is designed for individuals with an active lifestyle, and was meant to be practical for year-round use.

There's no specific timeline yet for the car's launch, though it'll likely be after the main Mission E's 2019 production date.
