Additional details regarding the Porsche Mission E have started emerging online. Thanks to the effort applied by Automobile magazine contributor, Georg Kacher, the audience has access to numerous glimpses to the existing prototypes that were presented at Porsche’s Weissach test track.
As noted by Clean Technica, the initial line-up of Mission E vehicles will feature an all-wheel-drive technology. There are numerous speculations that claim that the Mission E might be a rear-drive-only version. The automobile manufacturer hasn’t decided on the price-point as of yet. However, as per the sources close to the matter, Porsche is considering launching its Mission E line-up for sale for a price between $75,000 and $80,000 for the base model.
Interestingly, the price for the Mission E is the same as its arch-rival, Tesla Model S. As far as the performance level of the vehicles are concerned, there are three options – 400 kW, 500 kW, and 600 kW. For those without kilowatt-to-horsepower converter, these numbers are – 402 horsepower, 536 horsepower, and 670 horsepower.
The front motor will be the same in all the versions of Mission E, i.e. 160 kW at 16,000 rpm. The automobile manufacturer is reportedly going to make use of numerous rear motors.
However, this majorly depends on the desired performance level for the motors. It goes without saying that the two-speed transmission that comes packed up in Porsche’s Mission E will be successful at handling full power shifts. “Both battery cell chemistry and a complex battery cooling system are designed to let the Mission E handle high-speed driving on the Autobahn for an hour or more and still be capable of up to 300 miles of range. Top speed is 155 mph,” reported Clean Technica. Porsche still hasn’t confirmed any of the above-given information as of yet.
