2015 Frankfurt Motor Show: Porsche Mission E Concept Revealed

Written By:

German carmaker Porsche has revealed the Mission E Concept at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. This is Porsche's first attempt of making an all electric car.

The design, although looks very similar to a Panamera, it features matrix LED lights up front with "distinctive front wings and an extremely low-cut bonnet".

Cameras replace side mirrors of the car. The Porsche Mission E Concept also features 21-inch wheels up front, 22-inch wheels at the rear, suicide doors and a sloping rear window.

Power is from a motorsport-inspired drive system-a pair of permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM). This produces an equivalent of 600 horsepower, which helps the car reach 100 km/h from a standstill in 3.5 seconds and reach 200 km/h in less than 12 seconds.

The concept features all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering and the company claims that it has lapped the Nurburgring in under 8 minutes while it has a range of over 500 km.
