Electric Porsche gets detailed

Two years before the official launch or the sub-Panamera electric saloon, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume lifts part of the veil. During an interview with Autocar in Geneva last week, he said the vehicle, which was heralded by the promising Mission E concept revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show, will have different power versions and over-the-air update capability.

The production version of the Mission E will also offer level 4 autonomous driving skills, meaning that it can move about by itself in almost any situation. Blume stressed nonetheless that at Porsche, technology will never compromise the driving experience. “There are situations in traffic jams where you will be able to read a newspaper, but our customers take pleasure from driving, and this will remain,” he said.

Porsche’s first EV features a 500-km range and a, 80-% recharge time of just 15 minutes thanks to an 800 V charging system – an impressive step forward compared to today’s Teslas. It sits on the same EV platform as Audi’s E-tron Quattro SUV concept.
