Porsche News: Porsche's Big Bet on Electrics

The Mission E will be Porsche's first production electric vehicle, but it has plans to substantially expand. 

In a recent interview with German business magazine Manager Magazin, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said the company wants half of its vehicles rolling off the assembly line to be electric by 2023.

To reach this goal Porsche has two more electric vehicles waiting in the wings, both SUVs. The first will be coupe-SUV (think BMW X6/Mercedes GLE-Cass) that will come out a year or two later from the Mission E. The bigger news is Blume revealing that the next-generation Macan will only be available as an electric.

All of Porsche's electric vehicles will be built at the company's Zuffenhausen factory in Germany - reportedly capable of producing 60,000 vehicles annually.

Cool about the Mission E, I doubt their extreme extreme fast charging will make it into production. Yet with that said, happy to hear they are planning more and surprised that the Macan will end up EV only.

Yeah, they're just missing a few key cars and they'd be near perfect.

A sub-Boxster Roadster, and a real off-roader would be a great start.

 

And more wagons.....:D

      After years of saying they would produce an electric vehicle and not following through, it seems Infiniti will finally launch one.
      Speaking with Autocar, Infiniti Executive Design Director Alfonsa Albaisa said the brand would be launching a performance electric vehicle in 2019. The model will be previewed by a concept next year at the Detroit Auto Show. Albaisa said it would not be a derivative of an existing model and will be underpinned by a new platform. The most interesting bit about the vehicle is that it will feature some of the design cues from the Prototype 9 that debuted at Pebble Beach last month. Albaisa said that we would see “parts of the car in a difference context” on the Detroit concept.
      Infiniti has teased us before with electric concepts. In 2012 at the New York Auto Show, the company introduced the LE sedan concept. Using the running gear from the Leaf EV, Infiniti said a production model would arrive in 2014. However, plans would be pushed back in 2013 and then put on hold in 2015.
