Porsche confirm Mission E production

Porsche has officially announced that the all-electric Mission E has begun testing and will go on sale by 2020.

The all-electric Porsche has used the internal codename J1, and was first shown as a concept at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Mission E has received a €1bn investment and will develop its own sophisticated lithium ion battery platform. Porsche want to use the Mission E as the start of a new era of electric cars, that will herald in a new direction for the company.

It has been suggested that the Mission E will deliver 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and have a range of 330 miles. It will use the specially developed lithium ion platform along with two electric motors to deliver the extended range and high speed. The body will be composed of a mix of aluminium, steel and carbon-fibre reinforced polymer.

The Mission E will rival the Tesla S, entering the market with four-doors, advanced technology throughout, and the ability to re-charge to 80% within 15 minutes.
