The Porsche Mission E Concept is a prototype of the mark of Stuttgart that surprised last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Although at the moment is a conceptual model, long ago the project was green light and will a model of production at the end of the Decade. It will be the first electric Porsche and, although still not have details on it, the sales expectations are quite high.
Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche, in a recent statement said that they expect to sell around 20,000 units per year of this model. I would still be quite below the Tesla Model S, its main competitor exceeding 50,000 units last year and that it could overcome this 2016. Still it is a very reasonable figure for a 100% electric sedan and these features.
Blume also said that there will be more electric models over the next decade. Even is he has been working on an electric version of the new Porsche 718 Boxster, although it is not yet clear if it will reach the market. Recently it has made a great investment for the development of such vehicles at the factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. Also remain committed to plug-in hybrids like the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid.
But if we go back to the Porsche Mission E, the production is expected it didn’t too the concept version. This would mean that you would have two electric motors to add a power of 600-horsepower, something that lets you do the 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. In addition it is the first time you bring this technology of 800 volts getting an range of 500 kilometers and which can be charged to 80% in just 15 minutes thanks to the Porsche Turbo Charging.
