Porsche Mission E Concept Car is the first all-electric four-seat sports car in the brand’s history. Same technology, which helped 919 Hybrid to win 24 hours of Le Mans in 2015, will also be installed inside of this model.
The body of the Mission E Concept is made up of a functional mix of aluminum, steel and carbon fiber reinforced polymer. The design enhances efficiency and performance, with some details already seen on 911, GT3 RS, and 918 Spyder. Integrated aerodynamics include: air guides that improve airflow around the wheels, air outlets on the sides reduce overpressure in the wheel wells, thereby reducing lift. The wheels are made of carbon: the Mission E has wide tires mounted on 21-inch wheels in front and 22-inch wheels at the rear. Headlights are LED designed in the manner of 4-point light, typical for Porsche. Even side mirrors are exchanged for cameras which are discreetly installed on both doors, in order to increase aerodynamics.
Interior of Porsche Mission E is quite futuristic. For example dashboard is updated with an OLED dynamic display that has eye tracking technology. Central console hosts another touch screen display, on which driver can control stereo system, climate, and also display various information.
At the same time, lack of transmission is filled with another touch screen, which allows passengers on the front more convenient way to manipulate car’s infotainment system.
Porsche Mission E Concept Car Engine – HP, 0-60, Range
The engine inside of Porsche Mission E consists of 2 permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM), which together can produce impressive 600 HP, and allows car to sprint 0-62 MPH in less than 3.5 seconds. As an advantage unlike today’s electric drive systems, this drivetrain can develop its full power even after multiple accelerations at short intervals. As for fuel consumption, when fully charged this car can cover distance of 310 miles. And only 15 minutes is required to fill battery with almost 80%, which is enough for reaching 248 miles on the road. Porsche made this possible by introducing 800 volt charging system, which is double than today regular electric. Transmission is removed, to make place for the battery. The lithium-ion battery is mounted underneath the car, and it runs the whole length between the front and rear axles.
