Porsche Mission e Concept – Serious electric performance

0

Porsche e-Performance

Porsche currently has hybrid offerings, however the Porsche Mission e will be their first venture into an all electric car.

Classic Porsche Lines and DNA

Taking design queues from the Porsche’s from the 1950’s and 1960’s, as well as the Porsche 918 Spyder and 919, here’s an early look at the upcoming Porsche Mission e.

Interior Features

The interior boasts several high-tech features including facial and eye detection recognition.  This would be an interesting feature to experience first hand, as the menu navigation is controlled by eye tracking.

I’m not sure if this counts as an interior feature, but in lieu of exterior mirrors the Mission e uses cameras that are displayed inside, it’s exterior mirrors without mirrors.

You will also find all-new, racing inspired bucket seats for both front and rear seating.  A curved driver  cluster can be programmed and features 5 digital instruments that used OLED technology.

Performance Specs

These are some of the spec’s listed on Porsche’s website:
Acceleration 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) < 3.5 sec
Acceleration 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) < 12 sec Top speed > 250 km/h (155 mph)

Power > 440 kW (> 600 hp)

Range > 500 km (300 Miles)

System voltage 800 V

Charging time 80% in < 15 min
