Porsche Throws Electric CUV Curveball at Geneva

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Makes Surprise Debut In Geneva

Described by Porsche as "an electrically driven cross utility vehicle (CUV)", the Mission E Cross Turismo measures 4.95 meters in length, which means it's slightly shorter than a Panamera Sport Turismo. 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.

The Mission E Cross Turismo can do 0-100kph in 3.5sec, 200kph in under 12 seconds and has a top speed of 250kph. The concept features 20-inch wheels with relatively modest 275 section tyres. Porsche is saying the concept can get a 62-mile charge in just four minutes or about 250 miles in 15 minutes. Called the Mission E Cross Turismo, the electrified auto is essentially an elongated version of the Mission E, which is due to go on sale next year. Porsche claims that the auto has been readied for induction charging too, meaning that wireless charging points under the ground can help to replenish the car's batteries.

The Cross Turismo is an all-electric crossover wagon created to take on the Tesla Model X.

Power is guaranteed on any surface with on-demand all-wheel drive with Porsche Torque Vectoring, which automatically distributes torque to individual wheels.

Korea has used chemical weapons
Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham said on Thursday that any damage caused by a war with North Korea would be " worth it ".

Porsche's Mission E line looks like a serious competitor for Tesla, and this one seems like it could go toe-to-toe with both the Model S and potentially appeal to buyers who might be interested in a Model X, too. The panel can be further changed using touch input controls mounted to the steering wheel.

The rear seats also have ski port hatches built in for hauling some skis to a favourite piste, and large items can be stowed by folding the seats entirely. The boot floor also features a system of sliding rails and straps for securing loads, such as pushbikes or surfboards.

It's not exactly an SUV either, although it rides higher than a normal vehicle.

Further to the vehicle's reveal, Porsche hinted at future battery storage units that can be charged using domestic solar power that can then be put into the auto once home.
