Switzerland - Porsche has unveiled its Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV) at the Geneva Motor Show. 

Measuring 4.95m, the concept vehicle has all-wheel drive and an 800-volt architecture, prepared for connection to the fast charging network. It can also be charged by induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage system.

Two permanent synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of more than 440kW enable the Mission E Cross Turismo to accelerate to 100km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and to reach a speed of 200km/h in under 12 seconds. 

"The Mission E Cross Turismo is an expression of how we envision the all-electric future. It combines sportiness and everyday practicality in unique style. Our vehicle will be fast to drive, but also quick to recharge and able to replicate its performance time after time," says Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG. 

The Mission E Cross Turismo, which is already fit for the road, builds on the concept of the Mission E study presented by Porsche at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA). The series-produced car based on this model will celebrate its premiere in 2019.
