After testing, the Australian racer said that in terms of driving characteristics, Mission E reminds him of the 919 Hybrid racing car, in which he competed in the WEC. In addition, Webber said that the cockpit of electric car and the review has analogies with the Super Hybrid 918 Spyder.

The concept car Porsche Mission E was introduced in 2016 at the Paris Motor Show. The prototype was completed with two electric motors mounted on the front and rear axles. In total, the units develop more than 600 horsepower, so the electric car accelerates from place to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds.

The maximum mileage without recharging the batteries was about 500 kilometers (according to the European cycle NEDC). The stock of batteries can be replenished by 80% in about half an hour using a quick recharging system.

The serial electric vehicle Porsche will make its debut in 2019. According to preliminary data, the car prices will start from about 90 thousand euros. Thus, the “green” sports car will not be more expensive than the basic version of the Panamera model.
