Porsche preparing electric Pajun concept?

The Pajun name is an abbreviation from Panamera Junior and most likely it’s not the definitive name chosen by the Stuttgart-based manufacturer for its brand new concept. German media is speculating the vehicle in question will be a hatchback measuring approximately 4.8 meters in length, so it would be significantly shorter than the Panamera which stands at around 5 meters.

More importantly, the concept is likely getting an all-electric powertrain but it’s not known at this point the sort of power it will have and also other important details like performances and the maximum range before the batteries are depleted.

We do know the concept is more than just for show as a production version is being prepared for a probable release in 2018 or 2019, at the latest. There are some contradicting reports about what will power the series car as some are saying it will be all-electric like the aforementioned concept while others are indicating Porsche plans on offering an extended lineup with combustion engines, a plug-in hybrid setup and the pure electric variant as well.

The model is being developed as a competitor for the Tesla Model S and according to our sources it will be based on the second generation Porsche Panamera, so expect an aluminum-intensive lightweight construction and the latest technological developments from Stuttgart.

We don’t know how it will look like, but Porsche did show a Panamera Sport Turismo concept (pictured) several years ago and that might influence the Pajun which is expected to receive a different moniker since this is more like a codename rather than a nameplate suitable to use on a production car.

Porsche seems to be a bit late to the electric game as the Tesla Model S has been on sale for quite some time, but at least now other automakers are preparing models to rival the zero-emissions sedan from America.
