Is the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo the coolest EV at Geneva?

Porsche reveals second electric vehicle concept with 800V system, enabling 250-mile range in 15 minutes.

But it looks completely different than any other Porsche in the line-up.

The concept builds on the Mission E study that Porsche first unveiled back in 2015, but it's actually road-ready, the auto maker says, and features a 0 to 60 MPH time of less than 3.5 seconds, along with a driving range of over 310 miles on a single charge.

Those looking to take the vehicle off-road will tip their hat to Porsche for equipping the Mission E Cross Turismo with adaptive air suspension with height adjustment, all-wheel steering, torque vectoring and dynamic chassis control.

Just a smidgeon under 5 metres in length, the Mission E Cross Turismo has all-wheel drive, an 800-volt electric architecture, touchscreen and eye-tracking control for infotainment system, etc. Given that "The road-ready Mission E Cross Turismo. uses elements that are close to production", we'd say they're not too far off. Odds on Geneva this time next year... Porsche is saying the concept can get a 62-mile charge in just four minutes or about 250 miles in 15 minutes.

While the exterior combines the design language of the 2015 Mission E concept with the aesthetics of the current Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, the interior features a new, expansive interface concept with visual controls. It can also be charged by induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage system. Porsche is also developing an all-electric 911 model. The auto can be had with a Porsche e-bike. A freestanding instrument cluster is angled towards the driver, and the centre console rises towards the dash panel.

A new Destination App launches with the Mission E Cross Turismo and connects with the auto for planning weekends trips, destination ideas, plotting routes and even selecting the chassis, music, climate control and lighting settings for certain sections. 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.
