Frankfurt Show Highlights: Porsche Mission E Concept

The rumor that was reported that Porsche wants to build an all-electric car to beat Tesla is completely true. At the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the German automaker unveiled its latest concept car, Mission E. It’s not a two-door sport coupe like 911, but it’s a four-door sport sedan. Indirectly, it might preview the next generation of Panamera or even Panamera junior.

Porsche’s designers give the Mission E a fresh exterior design.No more rounded headlights at the front. It is replaced by four headlights with laser Matrix technology that is adopted from Audi. The concept car has suicide door and it means that Mission E doesn’t have B-pillar. Meanwhile at the rear, Porsche said that it had typical sport car architecture. At this part, we can see LED taillights that sweeps away from left to the right. A three dimensional ‘PORSCHE’ badge makes Mission E looked more interesting.

Inside, Porsche shows a futuristic interior styling. Just like, E-Tron cabin there are no buttons anymore and replaced with touchscreen displays using OLED technology. There are two layers 3D display. The first layer is driver’s display and the second is a holographic display that places from center cockpit to front-passenger side. The second layer displays media, navigation, climate control, contacts, and vehicles. Interestingly, the concept car features instrument that can be operated by eye-tracking, gesture control, and even hologram. And the 3-spoke steering wheel feels classic in a good way when I see it for the first time.

Porsche Mission E uses two PSMSs (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors) which can produce total output 600 hp and its driving range up to 500 km. The car with all-wheel-drive and all-wheel-steering system can reach 100 km/h from zero under 3.5 seconds. Furthermore, it can reach 200 km/h less than 12 seconds! The most impressive thing about this car is charging time. It can reach 80% only in 15 minutes, thanks to the first ever 800-volt drive system in the car’s industry.
