After it stormed the Frankfurt Motor Show this fall, the Porsche Misson E got green light. Despite the recent Dieselgate scandal and funds cutting inside all VAG Group. Porsche understood that it has to continue investing in alternative propulsion and advanced the development of the current technology.
So, the first 100% electrically powered Porsche is on its way. The company will be investing around 700 million euros in its Suttugart house. Over the next few years, a new paint shop and a new assembly plant will be built. The existing engine factory is also being expanded for the production of electric motors. In addition, the existing body shop is being enlarged. On top of that come other areas in which the company will be investing in this context, such as in the Weissach development centre.
The four-door car with four individual seats has a system power output of over 600 hp (440 kW). The vehicle will thus achieve both acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in under 3.5 seconds and a range of more than 500 kilometres.
Charged via an 800-volt charger unit specially developed for the car, which is twice as powerful as today’s quick-charge systems, the lithium-ion batteries integrated within the vehicle floor have enough power again for 80 percent of the range after just 15 minutes. The vehicle can optionally be ‘refuelled’ wirelessly by induction via a coil set into the garage floor.
