It looks like a Panamera from the future and it represents a significant departure in terms of design compared to the current crop of Porsches. It’s also very different from a hardware point of view as it’s the first vehicle from Stuttgart to adopt a full electric powertrain consisting of two electric motors which together generate a combined output of 600 bhp sent to an all-wheel drive system.

This grants the Mission E concept with a 0-100 kmph run in as little as 3.5 seconds while the 0-200 kmph journey takes less than 12 seconds. Interestingly, Porsche has already tested the car - which uses a four-wheel steering system - on the Nurburgring and managed to lap the track in less than eight minutes.

Another interesting feature is the brand new 800-volt drive system working together with a Porsche Turbo Charging system that can fill up the battery pack to 80% in just 15 minutes, providing the vehicle with an electric range of around 400 km. Once the battery level reaches 100%, the range will surpass the 500 km mark. The batteries can be recharged from a 400-volt charging station or wirelessly via inductive charging.

Likely previewing a Tesla Model S competitor, the new Porsche Mission E concept adopts a futuristic interior cabin with four individual slim seats that have a lightweight construction. There’s no instrument tunnel since we are dealing with an electric vehicle, so there’s more room inside the cabin where we find a plethora of OLED screens that have replaced the conventional buttons and knobs. Moreover, a holographic display has also been installed on the dashboard and it extends onto the passenger side. This shows a variety of controllable apps such as contacts, navigation, climate control, media and others - all of which can be individually selected and managed.

Porsche has not specified whether they have plans to introduce a production model based on the Mission E concept, but the styling will likely influence the new Panamera while the all-electric powertrain will likely be adapted on a future model in the years to come.
