The year 2020 might sound like a far cry but we are already in 2016 and it wouldn’t be too long before the world gets filled to the brim with fully electric vehicles.
Porsche excepts to be one of the top automobile manufacturers to reach the goal along with many others. They have confirmed that the Mission E concept cars showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show will be available for buyers before the end of this decade. While their estimated period is a good five years away, they may bring it much earlier if things go as planned.
Creating an electric car is tough when compared to making hybrids and plug-ins. These cars rely totally on battery packs and have to have the best mileage. After all, no country is filled with electric charging stations at the moment, but companies expect things to change in the next few years.
Porsche Mission E car will be a four seater vehicle and will be a direct competitor to Tesla’s Model S vehicle. However, the drawback is that Model S is already out in the hands of the users and is one of the hottest selling vehicles in Europe. The company is making its presence felt in US and the UK, followed by other nations.
But, Porsche is highly confident of their future plans. They have already invested $1.09 billion into developing electric vehicles and are looking forward to making a solid statement with their new launch. In terms of design, the car is extremely sporty and not aimed at daily commuters.
Powered by lithium ion batteries, the car promises to deliver a mileage of 310 miles on a single charge. The brand may manage to boost it further, when the vehicle actually hits the dealership stores, but for now, this range seems acceptable. Another interesting aspect about the fully electric vehicle from Porsche is that it can charge up to 80% battery within 15 minutes.
You may not have to wait for hours if the car runs low during a long trip. A fifteen-minute wait for the performance and the sophistication it offers is more than justified. The car can sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds. Meanwhile, Nissan is already experimenting with wireless charging technology and if everything falls into place, electric cars are the definitive future in the next century.
If you love Porsche, it is wise to wait for a couple of years and go totally electric when the Mission E gets launched.
