Currently, the Tesla Model S is the gold standard of perfection and performance in electric vehicles. The Ludicrous Mode on the Tesla Model Sa makes it one of the fastest vehicles on the planet with a 0-to-60mph acceleration time of 2.2755 seconds, a record for production cars.
You can’t spend more than an hour reading the news online without seeing Elon Musk or Tesla‘s name. They’re everywhere in the news even if the vehicles aren’t all over the roads yet (they will be). If you’re like me then you’ve been wondering where the other automaker’s answers are to Tesla’s success? Why hasn’t there been a completely badass production vehicle from Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche, Audi, or Jaguar yet? Well, Porsche is finally stepping up to the plate with the Porsche Mission E all-electric sedan. Porsche is calling this the ‘(Porsche) 911 of E-Cars’.
The Porsche Mission E is expected to hit the roads in the latter half of 2019 or the early part of 2020. The four-door five-seat Mission E will go from 0-to-60 MPH in 3.5 seconds and it will be able to travel a whopping 310 miles on a single battery charge. It can get up to 124 MPH in only 12 seconds with a combined output of 600 HP.
Porsche has already put up a ton of facts about the Misson E on their website where they’ve debuted the future of the company. The Porsche Mission E is expected to combine the incredibly luxurious experience of driving a Porsche with the high-performance of their electric permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSMs)…There are dual PSMs in the Mission E.
Other features include:
— Even weight distribution between front and rear
— All-wheel drive system with Porsche Torque Vectoring
— 21-inch wheels in front and 22-inch wheels in back
— Only 15 minutes to charge for a range of 250 miles
