Porsche Has Big Plans for the Mission E

November 30, 2016 lacarguy Porsche Tags: , ,

Porsche is hoping to sell at least 20,000 models of the Mission E EV per year when it’s finally released in 2020. While this isn’t an outlandish figure for automobiles in general, or even full electric vehicles, it’s a pretty high figure for the likes of Porsche. It’s an optimistic figure, but it’s tough to say whether or not the automaker is going to be able to meet such lofty goals once the vehicle is finally released. Here’s what the car has going for it that should help those Porsche goals become a reality.

It’s Beautiful

There are few automakers out there that know how to make a car as beautiful as Porsche does. For some people that’s enough to sell the Mission E on its own. The car should be a stunning piece of artwork and it’s going to appeal to a wide range of people looking for something attractive.

It’s Fast

At around 3.5 seconds from 0 to 62 MPH, the Mission E is a pretty quick full electric vehicle. It should be exciting to drive and something that most people will enjoy, even if they aren’t all about electric vehicles. While it won’t likely be the fastest car out on the road, it will be quick and have excellent handling mechanics, which is all that it really needs.

It’s Track Worthy

The Mission E is going to be a track-worthy sports car, like most other Porsche vehicles sold today. This should excite people looking to pick the car up for racing, and it’s one of the main selling points that the car has for it over some of its main competitors, even leading Tesla vehicles. Porsche understands how to create vehicles with superb track handling, and the automaker is undoubtedly going to keep that in mind when making the Mission E.

The Porsche Mission E is going to appeal to a large group of people, but it’s going to be tough to appeal to enough people to hit the figures that Porsche is going for. In order for that to happen they’ll have to produce a vehicle that offers the same level of performance as the stiffest competition released in 2020, and that might not be the case depending on how far along Tesla and other major EV producers are by then.

Porsche Might Release a Mini Mission E

It’s a bit disappointing to hear that the Porsche Mission E, full-electric supercar project has been delayed and that we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see what the car has to offer, it’s exciting at the same time. That’s because there is worth that Porsche is considering making a scaled-down version of the mid-sized electric sedan, to compete with the Tesla 3. This smaller full-electric sports car would be more affordable, and offer many of the impressive performance features of the larger vehicle.

The Delayed Mission E

If you haven’t heard yet, Porsche recently confirmed that the Mission E is getting delayed a bit. It’s tough to say if this is because of development problems, or because Porsche is deciding to focus on another project first, but it’s getting pushed back a bit. Many experts are hoping that it’s because Porsche decided to produce a scaled-down version of the vehicle first, and it’s entirely possible according to the head of development.

It’s Scalable

Porsche will neither confirm or deny that it’s thinking about producing a smaller version of the Mission E, but Oliver Blume, the chief developer of the Mission E did confirm that the model is completely scalable. That means it could be used to produce other vehicles as well, which means a scaled-down version of the electric sedan is completely possible and probably pretty easy to do as well.

Maybe they Will Both Be Released

While there is no guarantee that we’ll even get a scaled-down version of the Mission E sedan, it’s possible that we’ll get that as well as the full-sized version around the same time. That would certainly help Porsche compete a bit better with Tesla and BMW, two automakers that are both planning on releasing electric vehicles of their own.

No matter what Porsche decides to do, when the automaker finally releases electric vehicles, they’ll be well worth the wait, and should offer the performance and the luxury aspects that Porsche fans have come to expect over time.
