Porsche plans to install fast chargers at every single dealership the automaker runs in the U.S. to coincide with the rollout of its all-electric Mission E, but it won’t take a cue from Tesla and offer free access to owners.
The press pics of the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo are pretty slick. They show the car in a fine light looking all purposeful and Porsche-ish. But in person, here at the Geneva Motor Show, it looks a little more rough than ready.
Porsche has been teasing plans for its all-electric Mission E, expected to pack as much as 670 hp, with hyperfast charging times to boot.

According to Automobile magazine’s Georg Kacher, one of the very few to have driven Porsche’s sleek alabaster Mission E electric vehicle, the car will be offered at three power levels with the mightiest one coming in at an impressive 670 horsepower. That’s a lot of lightning-horses.
