Porsche unveiled its Mission E all-electric sports car concept about a year ago. The company recently confirmed more details about this car a few weeks back. It’s working on it now and aiming to launch it in 2019. The Porsche Mission E electric car has been photographed in the wild for the very first time. This more or less confirms that Porsche has now started testing the car on actual roads so the development work is moving forward.
The images published today by Autoblog are claimed to be of a “near-production” version of the Porsche Mission E. The car doesn’t look as exciting as the concept renders did but the design language is unmistakably Porsche. It actually looks similar to Porsche’s four-door Panamera.
Porsche Chairman Oliver Blume recently confirmed that the Mission E is going to be available for purchase by the end of 2019. He didn’t confirm precisely how much the car will cost but did mention that it will be priced close to the entry level Panamera which is around $80,000.
The figures shared by the company suggest that it will be able to go from 0-62 MPH in “less than 3.5 seconds,” and that the top speed will be more than 155 MPH. The car’s batteries should provide a range of around 330 miles and will also support fast charging which should provide 80 percent of charge in 15 minutes.
Expect more information about this car to surface in the coming months.
