Porsche Mission E - The 600 HP Surprise At Frankfurt
|   Friday, October 02, 2015
Porsche unveiled the prototype of an electric four seater supercar that can go without being recharged up to 500 kilometers. The concept, called Mission E, was presented at a special event organized by VW - "Night Premiers" before the opening of the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Mission E represents a step forward, an innovation for Porsche, a model that anticipates the first full electric car of the German manufacturer. With a technical book that's quite impressive ,the concept complies with the sports pedigree imposed by Porsche, both in numbers and in terms of image.


The concept was equipped with two electric motors that generate a total of 600 horsepower. With such performance, the car is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h (from 0 to 60mph) in 3.5 seconds and reach 200 km / h in 12 seconds.
In addition to the propulsion system, the Mission E has a four-wheel drive. Porsche assures that such a car can scroll through the Nurburgring race track in less than eight minutes.

Using knowledge about electric propulsion and energy storage gained with the development of the hybrid prototype used in the endurance race from LeMans this year - 919 Hybrid, along with battery technology developed for the 918 Spyder hypercar, the new concept promises to be a feared rival for the new Tesla Model S.

Among the key elements of the model we have the rapid charging function, needing only 15 minutes to recharge up to 80 percent capacity. This is possible thanks to the innovative technology of charging at 800 volts compared to 400 volts system existing on the other cars. By doubling the voltage, it results not only very fast charging but also a lower weight, due to the smaller charge module.
Optionally, Porsche customers can purchase an inductive charging station which is mounted in the garage, where once positioned, the vehicle is charged without the need for another operation.

Talking about a concept, it is not surprising that it comes with a completely digital dashboard - using the OLED technology, the displays are all adapted to align in the same position with the driver, regardless if its position is above, below, or tilted when cornering, the display is programmed to react with the driver.

The computer provides five main menus - Connected Car, Performance, Drive, Energy and Sport Chrono, the driver can activate and navigate through the menu directly by pressing a command button on the steering wheel. Moreover, among the amenities of the new concept we find a holographic display that extends toward the passenger from the driver's right. In this way the passenger will have access to various menus trip computer, media, navigation, air conditioning or vehicle details.

And to not lose the title of future concept, various functions of the Mission E's onboard computer o can be programmed on the tablet remotely through a module called Over the Air and Remote Services, with which the driver can set the GPS map for a day trip or details about range.

With another module called Integrated Remote Services, the driver can choose to open the car from a distance or allow friends or family to use it by sending them a file that contains a digital key that only applies a predefined period.
The concept is the basis of a future model that is said to be released to 2018.
