Porsche Mission E Goes To Norway For Private Showing (Pics!)

The concept version of the Porsche Mission E went to Norway this week for a private showing to dealers. Rumors suggest significant differences between the concept and the production car.

This story about the Porsche Mission E was first published by Gas2.

Thanks to our sharp-eyed European correspondent, Lief Hansen, we are able to bring you a photograph of a Porsche Mission E arriving in Norway for a private showing to Porsche dealers this week. The company has posted 20 photos of the car to a closed Facebook group, but Lief spied several of them in a story published by Side3, a Norwegian news site.

Porsche Mission E in Norway

Norway has some of the most ambitious goals and incentives for electric car buyers. As a result, it has become a top market for Tesla products. Porsche obviously wants in on the action and expects Norway’s favorable economic climate will make the Mission E — which will sell for about the same money as a Tesla Model S — a hit with Norwegian drivers.

The car seen here is the same as the concept seen at the recent Frankfurt motor show. Side3 reports chatter on Facebook suggests that the production car will lose the “suicide doors” at the rear in favor of doors mounted in traditional fashion. The production car will have seating for 5 rather than 4, according to rumors, and will come with 3 battery options. The base car with the smallest battery will retail for about $86,000, according to Porsche boss Oliver Blume.

Porsche claims the Mission E will be capable of an 80% charge in as little as 15 minutes, thanks to an 800 volt charging system. It is reported to have a range of 400 miles, although specifics about range with all battery options have not yet been made public. The car has a claimed 600 horsepower with performance to match. The quoted range is in the New European Testing Cycle. Actual EPA range will likely be very similar to the Model S 100 — 315 miles or so.

Whether it will be able to reach the stunning acceleration attributed to the mighty Model S P100D remains to be seen, but keep in mind that 0–60 times are only one measure of performance. It is unlikely the Mission E will leave many wishing for more.

Note: I sent a request to the Porsche Mission E Norway Facebook group asking to be granted access to their page. 10 minutes later, I was approved. Apparently, their membership standards are quite lax!

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
