Almost everyone loved the new Porsche Mission E electric concept which was released not too long ago at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September, previewing what the German luxury manufacturer thinks an electric car should look like. We certainly loved every bit of it, and honestly wouldn’t mind seeing this amazing Electric sports sedan next to gas powered cars.
So, yes Porsche fans.. Porsche has confirmed the Porsche Mission E for production being manufactured at the Porsche’s main site in Stuttgart, Germany and is expected to arrive at showrooms sometime by the end of 2019 – 2020. Oliver Blume, Porsche CEO says that the Mission E is “a new chapter in the history of the sports car.” and we agree.
The Porsche Mission E is not a prius either, it will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds feature lightweight construction, a powertrain that consists of two electric motors placed at each axle, 600 horsepower and an electric battery that gives you 200 miles of range of which can be charged in 15 minutes thanks to Porsche’s newly developed 800-Volt charging system.
Now we all know electric cars tend to have a lot of go in the begining but tend to max out at lower speeds, the Porsche Mission E however is expected to have a higher top speed than the fastest Tesla Model S which tops out at 155 mph, expect something like 180mph.
This isn’t just talk, Porsche puts its money on the table with around 700 million Euros – $762 Million at stake at their Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen plant dedicated all for building the new Porsche Mission E planned to be their next gen sports-car while the old engine factory is going to get an expansion to accommodate the new electric motors production.
Porsche was also planning to make a cheaper sedan that sits below the Panamera but wasn’t too clear about the power-train info, chances are they will be introducing some sort of hybrid mixture in the line-up by 2020.
