Porsche Debuts Mission E Cross Turismo In Geneva

Porsche

"The Mission E Cross Turismo is an expression of how we envision the all-electric future". With the growing popularity of SUVs, the Cross Turismo version seems destined to follow, although its production hasn't been officially confirmed.

Specificallyt, the company is in the early stages of drawing up a blueprint of a flying taxi, Porsche R&D chief Michael Steiner said at the Geneva auto show yesterday. Furthermore, Porsche claims the concept boasts an unmatched level of continuous power, making possible multiple accelerations in direct succession without loss of performance.

What is it? Long-time Porsche enthusiasts might cough up their muesli at the sight of the company's Mission E Cross Turismo, an AWD, all-electric concept vehicle aimed at urbanites who like to ski, bike or surf. The Mission E Cross Turismo uses an 800-volt architecture with inductive charging capability built in - fast charge network capability is a given. If not, Porsche is also planning to offer induction charging, and a home energy storage system, which can draw its energy from solar panels.

'Black Panther' Is The 10th Highest Grossing US Film Of All, Time
Death Wish , a remake of the Y 1974 revenge thriller, opened to an estimated $13-M from 2,847 locations, and took 3rd place. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Greatest Showman both remain in the top ten during their eleventh weeks of release.

No production dates or prices for the Mission E Cross Turismo have been announced as yet.

Porsche says the newest concept combines the "everyday usability" of the Mission E with the added bonus of "off-road adventure".

Under The skin is pretty much what's under the Mission E, with 600bhp of electric power promising 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and, Porsche are keen you know, capable of doing that time after time.

The Shape Of Water triumphs at Oscar Awards
And Jordan Peele won the award for best original screenplay for his highly acclaimed debut film, horror satire " Get Out ". This was the year that men s--d up so badly "women started dating fish", he said, referencing The Shape of Water .

Porsche is studying flying passenger vehicles, but expects it could take up to a decade to finalise technology before it can launch in real traffic, its head of development said on Tuesday.

While Porsche claims the Mission E Cross Turismo is a "crossover", it looks more like a lifted Panamera Sport Turismo, with Mission E styling hiding the underpinnings of an Audi A4 Allroad wagon. The seats are definitely concept fodder (same story in the rear cargo area), but some minor changes would make for a production-ready interior.

Aside from the development of its Mission E models, Porsche's investment in electrification will also see the next 911, the 992-generation that's due in 2019, receive a hybrid option for the first time.
