After the official announcement of production of Taycan (formerly the Mission E), Porsche has also revealed more details about its second all-electric car, the Mission E Cross Turismo. This concept is said to reflect the German automaker’s vision of incorporating pure electric mobility in the form of an all-electric sports crossover.
Looking at the Cross Turismo's style, one can say that it’s a combination of Taycan and Panamera, but with a cooler wheel arch and a higher height, because the batteries are placed under the passengers.
Speaking of exterior characteristics, the brand gave its electric car a distinct identity among its other models – simple yet striking. The upper edge of front and rear protective strips also features a contour of blue line, while the logo at the back of this e-Porsche is illuminated to add to its overall appeal.
Its rims, on the other hand, are coated with a thunder blue color to create a clear distinction from the hybrid models’ acid green shade. Moreover, this battery-powered performance car has four individual seats, as well as a rear end where you can put your stuff, making it a great fit for an everyday car.
When it comes to performance, this elegant sports car can produce a total power output of 600 hp, which can catapult from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds. What’s even more impressive is that it can be recharged to range of 400 km in just 15 minutes, all thanks to its powerful 800-volt technology.
Here’s the exciting part. See those two recesses on the hood? Those are hints of possible addition of headlights featured on the Porsche rally vehicles. The German marque also dropped the idea that it might be conceived that there are sensors hidden behind the openings for autonomous driving. However, few years ago, the company said that it has no plans in producing a fully autonomous car. Could it be that Porsche changed its mind?
