600hp all-electric Porsche Mission E concept revealed
Porsche has revealed its 600hp all-electric Mission E concept, or “the Porsche of tomorrow” as it’s calling it, at the Frankfurt Motor Show overnight.
PORSCHE HAS given a glimpse of what “the Porsche of tomorrow” might look like via its Mission E concept. Revealed overnight at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the electric Mission E is, according to Porsche “a coherent design of a sports car with an electric drive and all of the traits that make up a Porsche”.
In a short statement about the Mission E, which was revealed alongside the almost-impossible-to-pick-it new 911, Porsche said “The first all-electrically powered four-seat Porsche of the 21st century represents the future of a concept that made the 911 the most successful sports car ever for over 50 years”.
Obviously, the Mission E is Porsche’s idea of an electric Porsche, or “the future of the electric sports car”.
“The fascinating design of the four-door car with four seats bears many references to the 911 while revealing the Mission E to be a Porsche at first glance. The passionately designed sports car with all-wheel drive develops a total power of over 600hp, which can be converted into typical Porsche driving dynamics.
“The driving range of the Mission E is over 500km, and the innovative 800-volts battery charging system Porsche Turbo Charging reduces charging time to just slightly longer than it takes to fill a car’s fuel tank today. At the quick charge station, it takes just over 15min to provide enough charge for around 80% of the total range. In keeping with the car’s purist interior, the control and dis play concept is intuitive with eye-tracking and gesture control as well as innovative functions.”
We’d suggest that while the Mission E’s looks might not make it into production, the technology that powers it probably isn’t too far away.
