The 2020 Porsche Mission E is on track to being released by 2020. The concept for this completely electric car was introduced at the Frankfurt International Motor show in September 2015. Since then, consumers have been awaiting more details on the release of the Mission E. This will be the first all-electric car in Porsche’s line. Porsche has recently made several strides towards sustainable energy, with the Mission E being the latest. The Mission E is set to rival the Tesla Model S.
The superior technology and engineering employed to develop the Mission E set it apart from other electric cars. From the aerodynamic exterior to the charging mechanism, Porsche’s Mission E is designed for excellence.
2020 Porsche Mission E – Exterior Features
The exterior of the 2020 Porsche Mission E is sleek and sophisticated. It includes a four-door design allowing for a more accessible sports model. While some have likened it to the 911, the 2020 Porsche Mission E is a unique model not meant to be the electric version of another design. The exterior is built for high speeds using lightweight materials such as aluminum and high-performance steel.
The Mission E was designed to be as aerodynamic as possible. Its design minimizes wind resistance by eliminating the side mirrors and utilizing small cameras instead. The headlights will be LED lights.
2020 Porsche Mission E – Interior
The Mission E’s interior also includes four individual seats in a comfortable, spacious cabin. Electric cars offer more interior space as they do not have a transmission tunnel or driveshaft. This gives the inside of the Mission E a clean, open feel.
As electric cars are very quiet, drivers and passengers will enjoy a peaceful ride. Technological improvements will include a holograph display and eye-tracking devices so the car can sense what feature the driver wishes to change. This increases driving safety as drivers will be freer to keep their eyes on the road. The car will also adjust displays depending on how the driver is sitting.
2020 Porsche Mission E – Expected Engine Details
Porsche invested over $1 billion in new facilities to manufacture the Mission E. Also, the design includes two electric engines, one in the back powering the rear wheels and one in the front powering the front wheels. Its charger was specifically designed for the car. This 800-volt charger will charge the Mission E’s batteries up to 80% in 15 minutes. Owners can also install a coil set in their garage floor to recharge the car without plugging it in.
Porsche has stated that the Mission E’s two engines offer 592 hp and that the car can go from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 3.5 seconds. The top speed has been stated at over 100 mph. The engines also boast 663 pounds-feet of torque. Porsche has estimated that the Mission E will be able to travel 310 miles before needing a recharge.
2020 Porsche Mission E – Price and Release Date
Assuming no unforeseen delays, the Mission E is expected to be released by 2020. No exact date has yet been released.
Porsche has not released a price for the Mission E yet. Considering the company spent over $1 billion on manufacturing the Mission E, it likely won’t be cheap. However, Porsche’s CEO stated the company’s goal will be to sell 20,000 Mission E cars each year. Porsche’s research and development head stated that whatever the Mission E costs, it will be “worth the price.”
