Power comes from two permanent magnet synchronous motors which produce more than 600 hp. A Porsche e-bike could also be purchased that would suit perfectly with the Mission E Cross Turismo's, ah, mission.

All-wheel steering and air suspension, as well as Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control and 275/40 R 20 tyres all help keep the Mission E Cross Turismo stable and firmly on the road, reducing tilt and "lateral rocking". The Mission E Cross Turismo utilizes an 800-volt electric architecture which allows for fast-charging times of just 15 minutes for 400 km of range (an estimate based on the European cycle).

Porsche will decide later this year whether to build the Mission E Cross Turismo concept, which surges to 100 kilometres per hour in less than 3.5 seconds, he said.

Though Porsche's first EV doesn't beat the Model S in a straight line, the German brand says its auto is more reliable for performance and won't turn down power after repeated launches.

Porsche head of battery electric vehicles Stefan Weckbach loosened his tongue on the forthcoming Mission E electric concept and the company's general EV direction going forward on Wednesday. However, charging can also be done using slower methods and additionally has induction, or wireless, charging built-in. The auto can be had with a Porsche e-bike. The dash has a freestanding instrument cluster angled towards the driver with three circular display fields digitally displayed on TFT screens. The system tracks eye movement and places one of five instrument stacks - Connect, Performance, Drive, Energy and Sport Chrono - in front of the driver. Each of the rear seats features a load through function, plus they can be folded completely flat.

It's not exactly an SUV either, although it rides higher than a normal auto.

One of Porsche's big selling points for its as-of-yet unproduced electric vehicles is repeatable performance: You'll be able to hit those acceleration and performance figures again and again without cooking anything onboard or forcing the auto to throttle down. Porsche calls it a "Cross-Utility Vehicle" and says that it is designed for individuals with an active lifestyle, and was meant to be practical for year-round use.
