Early this year, Porsche presented an all-electric crossover utility vehicle (CUV) concept car called the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept. Now the German carmaker has given the green light for the Mission E Cross Turismo to hit the production floors.
The Mission E Cross Turismo will be the second all-electric Porsche following the Taycan sportscar which is due for market debut in 2019. The Mission E Sedan which is scheduled for production floors in 2019, expect the production-ready Mission E Cross Turismo to debut some time before that.
Porsche claims that the production-ready Mission E Cross Turismo will feature an 800-volt architecture, packing a system output of 600 hp and a range of 500 km. Century sprint is claimed to be under 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h. The 800-volt architecture enables the four-door electric Porsche to feature rapid charging, giving it 400 km of range in just 15 minutes.
The introduction of the Taycan is generating 1,200 new jobs in Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart and the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo will add 300 additional new jobs on top of that.
