Porsche Mission E electric sport sedan: 200-mile recharge in 15 minutes

Porsche Mission E

While there have been lots of concept cars and production announcements,

the first serious German competitor to the Tesla Model S and Model X won’t arrive for at least another year.

And what could prove the most potent of them all—the production version of the stunning

Porsche Mission E concept car revealed two years ago—won’t go into production for another two years.

Still, we’ve learned a bit more about that car, which will go on sale at the end of 2019

as a 2020 model, from comments by Porsche chairman Oliver Blume.

Porsche didn’t reveal any new electric vehicles at last week’s Frankfurt auto show,

which saw a host of battery-electric concept cars from Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

But Blume spoke to Britain’s Car magazine about the brand’s upcoming electric sport sedan,

as well as the company’s fast-charging plans.

From a few of his comments, a case could be made that if any maker can

offer a “Tesla-beater” electric car, the Mission E could be it.

One important point that emerged from Car‘s interview with Blume concerned

the Mission E’s price: it will be comparable to that of today’s Porsche Panamera sedan.

That actually covers a wide range, from a base model at $85,000 to limited-edition high

-performance versions that can approach twice that amount when fully loaded.

But Blume told the magazine the Panamera would be priced like “an entry-level Panamera,”

with an array of performance options—presumably meaning motor outputs and battery capacities.

When the car debuted at the 2015 Frankfurt show, Porsche quoted 0-to-62-mph

acceleration times of 3.5 seconds, and just 12 seconds to 125 mph (200 km/h).

Total battery range is quoted at 300 miles (500 km), though that’s likely on

the gentle European test cycle; a more realistic U.S. EPA figure might be 250 miles.

Its versions will “likely” follow the current Porsche hierarchy of models,

Blume said, meaning S, GTS, and so forth.
