Porsche Mission E Concept debuts at 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (LIVE Photos)
Porsche is introducing this all electric powered four seater sports car for the first time in the company history and promises both exceptional performance and state of the art practicality.
Interiors boast of four individual and lightweight seats. All buttons and knobs have been replaced by OLED screens while there is an eye tracking system that functions with a camera that instantly recognized the instrument being viewed by the driver. Porsche Mission E concept also receives a holographic display extending onto the passenger side with apps such as media, climate controls, contacts and navigation which can be selected individually or can be automatically controlled.
Power to the Porsche Mission E concept comes from two permanent magnet synchronous motors as is also seen on the 919 Hybrid LMP1 racecar. This engine is capable of charge to 80% in 15 minutes (using an 800V Porsche Turbo Charging system) which would be sufficient to offer about 250 mile (400 km) range.
Mission E can be charged by using a traditional 400 volt charger or via inductive charging (wireless). To charge via the latter, all you have to do is park the vehicle over a coil embedded in the floor of the garage. Once it is parked, energy is transmitted from the coil to the battery of the vehicle.
Porsche promises the setup generates a maximum of 600 hp. It does 0-100 kmph sprint in less than 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of over 250 kmph along with total range of over 500 km.
While being displayed as a concept, Porsche will be taking decisions on whether to build the car or not by the end of this year. On receipt of the go ahead, Porsche Mission E concept could hit the streets at the earliest by 2019.
