At the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, we got familiar with Porsche’s intentions towards EV production. They have presented Porsche Mission E concept and it was supposed to preview a completely electric sedan scheduled to hit the market approximately in 2019. This is why the company is hiring over 1,400 people and invests around €700 million in this project.
According to Oliver Blume, Mission E will be settled below Panamera. He has also mentioned that the model will come up with a range of 311 miles (500 km).
The company’s director has also stated that the vehicle will be available in various versions with various outputs. He has also mentioned that the over-the-air (OTA) updates will be the same as Tesla’s. For instance a 400-hp version of Mission E would increase the power to 450 hp.
The model will also feature a fast-charging system that allows recharging the battery to 80 percent in just 15 minutes. There are also some rumors stating that Porsche will work closely with Hitachi on the 800-volt charging system.
