World Premiere of the concept Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo. Giving a look at what a Turismo model with features of a crossover utility vehicle could look like in series production.

Unmistakable Porsche DNA

With a low-cut bonnet between heavily curved wings, the front of the Mission E Cross Turismo reveals its relationship to the sports car icon Porsche 911 at first glance. Vertical air inlets in the front, commonly known as air curtains in the automotive industry add a distinctive design feature and stylistic highlight which leads the eye to the matrix LED headlights embedded into the sweeping wings. Within the headlights, the brand’s signature four-point daytime running lights have evolved into narrow, three-dimensional glass elements which surround the high-performance lights powered by Porsche X-Sight Technology, and also contain an innovative four-point indicator light. The off-road design elements include robust wheel arch protection and door sills, a striking front spoiler with lower rear and increased ground clearance.

“a car that is equally suitable for travelling, everyday life and adventure, filling the role of a versatile companion both in the city and in the countryside”

In exquisite style and what Porsche designers refer to as a ‘flyline’, a large panoramic glass roof extends from the windscreen to the boot lid following the silhouette which is defined by a sporty roofline that slopes off to the rear. This ensures a generous amount of light within the cabin and allows a greater sense of space for occupants. This is reminiscent to the rear of the Panamera Sport Turismo. Equally distinctive for the brand is the dynamic shape of the side windows supported by the broad wings and three-dimensional side panels with air outlets behind the front wheels. This edgy design is both striking and functional, reinforcing the sporty crossover character of the concept car which stands 1.99 metres wide.

Even from behind, the study can immediately be recognised as a Porsche with its continuous light strip, a typical feature or the brands latest models. Exclusively to the Mission E Cross, the luminescent white Porsche logo is composed of glass letters embedded in a three-dimensional cover with a circuit board design which is brought to life by pulses of light during charging. This makes the flow of energy impressively visual for the customer.

Interior

The dashboard emphasises the vehicle’s width and is composed of a wing-shaped upper and lower part. The instrument panel is clearly organised horizontally with extra-wide displays for the driver and front passenger. The freestanding instrument cluster is angled towards the driver and includes three circular display graphics with digital content on TFT screens. In combination with the ambient lighting, the indirect lighting of the centre console which rises from between the front seats towards the dash panel creates a unique atmosphere.

The interior design features light weight materials, sporty seats, reminiscent of those found in racing cars, with added illuminated Porsche lettering. The door lining has innovative three-dimensional elements with a textured surface with anodised edges in Nordic Blue on features such as the air vents and window lift modules which create a contrast to the exclusive bicolour concept of the interior with aniline leather in black and light grey.

Futuristic & innovative technology

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Steering

Driver display with eye-tracking control

Using a camera in the rear-view mirror, the eye-tracking system detects which instrument the driver is looking at. The displays he or she can see are then brought to the foreground, while others are made smaller when the driver looks away. Operations are carried out using smart touch controls on the steering wheel.

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Passenger Display

Passenger display

Embedded in the dash, the screen extends across the full width of the passenger side. Using eye-tracking and touch screen technology, the passenger can operate various apps to control features such as media, navigation and air conditioning as well as contact lists.

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Centre Console

Intuitive touch screens & panels

The display technology doesn’t just end on the dash but extends to the centre console touch panel where vehicle information is displayed on small touch screens placed both in the multifunctional window lift modules (for seat adjustment and comfort functions) as well as in the slatted air vents on the right and left of the dashboard.

The ‘smart cabin’ approach simplifies operation. Vehicle settings, interior climate and ambient lighting are automatically adapted in line with the preferences of the occupants and the driving situation.

From outside the vehicle, the driver can access a wide range of information and customisation options from air conditioning to on-board navigation ahead of travel using a tablet, smartphone or smartwatch.

Performance

Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of more than 600 hp (440 kW) allow the Mission E Cross Turismo to accelerate to 60 mph in less than 3.4 seconds and to reach a speed of 124 mph in under 12 seconds.

Multiple accelerations are possible in direct succession without loss of performance, a level of continuous power unmatched by any other electric vehicle. Power is guaranteed on any surface thanks to on-demand all-wheel drive with Porsche Torque Vectoring, which automatically distributes torque to individual wheels.

Adaptive air suspension increases ground clearance by up to 50 millimetres provides comfort and agility while all-wheel steering contributes to the exemplary agility and stability of the vehicle. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) is also on board, providing active roll stabilisation and preventing side tilt of the vehicle when cornering and reducing lateral rocking of the vehicle on uneven surfaces.

Charging

The 800-volt architecture of the vehicle ensures that the lithium-ion battery can be charged for a range of around 250 miles (400 kilometres – according to the NEDC) in just over 15 minutes. A full charge gives the Mission E Cross Turismo a 310+ mile (500+ km) range.

Charging of the concept vehicle is flexible and can take place on the road or at home and is prepared for connection to the fast charging network. The battery of the Mission E Cross Turismo can be replenished using induction, a charging station or a solar power compatible Porsche home energy storage system.
