Comments: Frankfurt 2015: Porsche Mission E

Recommended Posts

Porsche has taken the first shot at Tesla with the introduction of the Mission E concept revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show last night.

 

The concept boasts an 800 Volt electrical system with two permanent magnet synchronous motors - similar motors to the ones used in the 919 Hybrid LMP1 racecar. The powertrain produces around 600 horsepower and gives the Mission E performance figures of 0-60 MPH around 3.5 seconds and hitting 124 MPH in 12.5 seconds. Overall range is estimated at 310 Miles. Now this is more range than the comparable Tesla P85D which offers 305 Miles. But with the P90D just around the corner, Tesla says range will increase about six percent.

 

One of the big points of the Mission E is how fast it can recharge. Porsche says the concept can achieve an 80 percent charge in 15 minutes. This is thanks to 800 Volt electrical system in the vehicle. The Mission E can also charge on a 400V outlet or inductive charger.

 

In terms of looks, the Mission E looks to be a futuristic Panamera with elements of 918 strewn throughout. The concept features some nice touches as the charging port hidden in a movable panel in the front fender and a set of sucide doors with no B-Pillar.

      First Porsche Found after a Century plus, EV P1 at the Beginning!

      Always exciting to learn things about founders of car companies and in this case it is even more exciting as Porsche is not new to the EV Auto. In 1898 Ferdinand Porsche built himself the first Porsche vehicle. and it was placed in an Austrian shed in 1902 and forgotten about till 2017 and then on Monday was added to the Porsche History Museum in Stuttgart Germany.
      Let's back up a bit and give some details that auto nuts love to know about.
      Ferdinand Porsche founded his company in 1948 and before then was a man who had no formal engineering training but an aptitude for it as he worked for coach builder Jacob Lohner.
      Mr. Porsche was asked by Mr. Lohner to come up with an electric powertrain. Mr. Porsche continued his work and on June 26th 1898 the "Egger-Lohner EV C.2 Phaeton was put on the streets of Vienna Austria. Mr. Porsche engraved P1 on all the components he designed and built which was the key components of the powertrain. 
      Here is the specs of the P1:
      Electric motor weighed 287 lbs. Produced 3 HP continuous and had spurt mode to 5 HP as achieved in overdrive mode. Top speed of 21 mph. Vehicle weight before battery pack 2000 lbs. Battery pack weight 1000 lbs with 50 mile range. September 1899 Mr. Porsche entered a car race where the contestant had to complete 24 miles with 3 passengers as fast as they could. Mr. Porsche piloted his EV Auto across the finish line 18 min ahead of the 2nd place finisher and more importantly where more than half of the contestants failed to finish at all due to technical problems according to the museum history telling.
      Today Porsche has the Panamera gas-hybrid sedan as well as the 918 gas-hybrid racer. from 3 hp to 887 hp, from 21 mph to 211 mph. Mr. Porsche would be proud of where his company has gone and especially that they are going back to his original roots and first powertrain that he developed and believed in.

      More details have to come to light about Porsche's upcoming Mission E EV thanks to a report from Automobile. They had the chance to drive a development mule and speak with executives about the vehicle.
      We've heard previously that Porsche could be offering various power outputs for the Mission E and Automobile sheds more light on this. There could be three versions offering 300 kW (402 horsepower), 400 kW (536 horsepower) and 500 kW (670 horsepower). Power will come from two drive units on the front and rear axle. The front unit is said to develop 160 kW (215 horsepower) and 221 pound-feet of torque. The torque figure can be raised to 325 for short bursts. There will be two rear drive units producing either 240 kW (322 horsepower) and 251 pound-feet, or 320 kW (429 horsepower) and 406 pound-feet of torque.
      A two-speed transmission is being developed and all models will have all-wheel drive, though there is talk about Porsche offering a lower-cost RWD version.  
      The Mission E will slot between 911 and the Panamera in the lineup. Interestingly, despite being smaller than the Panamera, the Mission E will have similar interior room thanks in part to the packing of the electric powertrain.
      "The production version is in essence a C-segment sedan with an almost D-size interior. Visually, the car combines 911 overtones with fresh proportions and very good space utilization even though the Mission E is notably more compact than the Panamera," said project leader Stefan Weckbach.
      Pricing is expected to begin at $75,000 to $80,000 when the Mission E arrives in 2019.
