Porsche Mission E Electric Car Rules Frankfurt


Porsche has managed to generate the most buzz at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show with their Mission E electric car concept.

OK, I will get down to business.  With Elon Musk and Tesla Motors squarely in the crosshairs, Porsche’s R and D chief Wolfgang Hatz says the “time is right” for electric vehicles.  This comes as no surprise, as Porsche has been dabbling in hybrid technology for quite some time with their Panamera and Cayenne E-Hybrids, as well as the tour de force 918 supercar.

The particulars for the Mission E look to be as follows: 
·         310 mile range on a single charge with a 15 minute recharge to 80% capacity. 
·         Propulsion equivalent to 600 horsepower. 
·         Zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.  (Don’t blink!)

One neat little trick, the car will handle inductive charging.  No, this has nothing to do with your credit card.  What it means is that you simply pull the car into your garage, where it is parked over a charging plate.  No plug-in necessary.  Nice..!
These specifications are eerily similar to the current Tesla Model S.  While I doubt Elon Musk is worried, the consumer will certainly be pleased to have more choices in the luxury electric marketplace.  Porsche claims a production version within five years. 

I can’t wait..!
