Porsche Mission E — Frankfurt
With plenty of experience around hybrid and electric drivetrains, it’s no wonder Porsche is exploring the feasibility of a high-performance electric sports sedan. The Mission E provides a taste of what that vehicle could be, and is the first all-electric 4-seat sports car from the German automaker. Legendary Porsche performance with new levels of efficiency and innovation are expected from the Mission E. Virtual external mirrors capture images and project them onto the lower corners of the windshield, eliminating the drag of large door-mounted mirrors. In order to properly compete in this high-performance electric car market (which is currently quite small), Porsche feels this car would need to be able to reach 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds, have a 300-mile range and be able to reach 80 percent capacity after just 15 minutes of electrical charging.
