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.
Despite being just a concept auto, the Mission E wagon/crossover looks almost production ready, featuring a massive panoramic infotainment touchscreen stretching across the entire width of the dashboard.

The press release isn't too generous with details about the interior, but Porsche does say it features an innovative display and operating concept with touchscreen and eye-tracking control.
The four bucket-style seats are finished in black and blue leather trim and Nordic Blue anodised accents add contrast to bezels and small trims, that can all be dulled with moody indirect ambient lighting.

Porsche said its Cross Turismo is "road-ready" and while production is not confirmed Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said during the maker's Geneva presentation that, "In my opinion, there is a very good case for a production version soon".
