Porsche boss, Albrecht Reimold, stated that the Mission E will spawn several variants to satisfy surging global demand for electric mobility. Codenamed J1, the car was first previewed as the Mission E concept at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show and it will be Porsche’s first bespoke electric car.
The Volkswagen Group wants to have an electric version of every model by 2030, and the Mission E will be the start in this direction for Porsche. Porsche will sell the Mission E with a range of power outputs and chassis set-ups.
The car will be set up with an 800V rapid-charging system, which can charge the battery to 80 percent in just 15 minutes.
