Porsche gets green light for billion dirham electric project
It's official! Porsche will move ahead with Mission E. The project, which is 100 percent electrically powered car, will see an injection of close to Dhs3.9 billion (€1 billion) in the project. Speaking about the car Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG said: "With Mission E, we are making a clear statement about the future of the brand. Even in a greatly changing motoring world, Porsche will maintain its front-row position with this fascinating sports car."
The Mission E concept car, which launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, showcases the car's unique driving performances with its everyday practicality. Able to reach 0-100km in a mere 3.5 seconds, the car can rely on electric juice for more than 500km. Unlike current recharging standards, the specially developed charging stations for Mission E cars will be able to recharge the battery for 80 percent range in just 15 minutes.
The Porsche Mission E is set to be launched by 2020.
