Porsche dropped a surprise debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the Mission E Cross Turismo. Porsche’s newest EV concept promises offload prowess with 310 miles of range and superfast charging with 250 miles added in just 15 minutes. The Mission E Cross Turismo is a four-door hatchback with huge offroad tires and comes with Porsches innovative 800-volt charging technology, as well as induction charging via a floor panel.

Being a Porsche also means it’s quick. With 600 hp, 0-60 mph comes in just 3.5 seconds and a 155 mph top speed. Based off the Porsche Mission E , it comes with the same basic layout with dual electric motors, floorboard battery and sleek looks. More of the cockpit has been revealed with an extremely futuristic layout, with touchscreens and few buttons.

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo comes with rugged offroad tires,and elevated body with greater ground clearance. This decidedly offroad appearance is aimed at the sport-ute segment.

Porsche is the first in the industry to utilize an 800-volt charging port. Using 800 volts, as opposed to the industry standard 400 volt, the Mission E and Mission E Cross Turismo will be able to charge twice as fast. It also reduces weight, as the 800-volt can use lighter gauge copper cable.

Porsche claims that in a mere five minutes you get 100 km/62 miles of range. The downside is there are no 800 volt chargers in the United States currently, though Atlanta and LA are each supposed to get some soon.

    The elevated body and greater ground clearance come by way of active air suspension, which can raise the car by 2″. With the suspension in its normal low position, the Cross Turismo is 56″ tall (lower than a 3-series). Looking at the pictures of the car, there are some showing almost no space between the tires and top of the wheel arch, while most show a couple of inches of clearance (with the air suspension pumped up). Undoubtedly, the marketing people wanted to present the car as falling into the popular taller crossover class (adding the black rocker panels and wheel arch cladding, plus knobby tires), while the Porsche designers were intent on a car that had Porsche’s sports car DNA. Looks like it has the potential to make a great road car (without the knobbies), with just a few superficial crossover cues to enhance sales.

    Tall EVs (SUVs) have high drag — need big, heavy batteries for long range. Heavy negates great handling.

    Looks way cool! Problem is when and how many of these special chargers will be installed? Everyone is bragging about their charging rates but where are the chargers, how many, how long a wait before available worldwide?
