The Porsche Mission E is scheduled to be launched globally in 2020 and the development of the car is on track. The Mission E is powered by a 440kW of all-electric motor that generates 600bhp of maximum power. The Porsche Mission E concept can sprint from 0-100kmph in less than 3.5 seconds. Porsche has also revealed that the electric sports car will have an all electric range of 500km on a full charge which is higher than Tesla. The car comes with a Turbo charging feature that provides a 400km range with just 15 minutes of charging.
The impressive range of the Porsche Mission E is mainly due to Porsche's 800V battery technology. While most EVs run on 400V technology, the Mission E runs on double power. The new technology allows the Porsche Mission E to be faster, lighter and quicker to charge. The company has also said that the car can be charged “at home in the garage via convenient inductive charging by simply parking over a coil embedded in the floor of the garage from which the energy is transferred without cables”.
