Porsche Mission E Electric Car Release Moved Up to 2019
Four years ago, the Porsche Mission E debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show, showcasing sports sedan styling and an eco-friendly powertrain. Currently, it’s scheduled to go into production in late 2019 at Porsche’s plant in Zuffenhausen. In terms of size, the Porsche Mission E will be similar to the Panamera, and its power and price-tag will make it a strong competitor for the Tesla Model S.
The Mission E will feature two PSM electric motors that produce 440kW—equivalent to 600 hp. According to Porsche, it’ll breeze to 60 mph from a standstill in 3.5 seconds and have the ability to travel 310 miles on a single charge. To put those figures into context, the Tesla Model S has a range of just 294 miles.
Additionally, the Mission E will arrive in a variety of grades—each offering unique power outputs for different types of Palo Alto drivers. Top track speed will peak at 155 mph. You’d think charging this powerhouse would takes hours, but its fast-charging batteries charge to 80% in just 15 minutes!
Currently, details on the interior are scarce, but it’s very likely the following will be available upon the Mission E’s arrival:
- Seating for up to four passengers
- 360-degree camera
- Fully electronic driver information screen
- Cargo space that’s identical to the Panamera’s
