Porch to challenge Tesla

Postby johnsmith » 31 Dec 2017, 12:33

Porsche is set to release its first fully-electric car, the Mission E, in 2019. While the company previously indicated the car's price would begin at around $US85,000, Automobile Magazine reports that number may be closer to $US75,000. This would put it in the range of Tesla'sModel S, which starts at $US74,500.

The publication also reports that the Mission E will come in three models, ranging from 402 to 670 horsepower. The fastest model will be able to hit a maximum speed of 155 mph and go from 0-60 mph in about 3.5 seconds, according to Automobile Magazine. This would be a little slower than a Tesla Model S P100D, which can do the same in 2.5 seconds.

The Mission E is Porsche's attempt to compete with Tesla, the Model S in particular, and boasts a number of impressive features. It will be able to drive up to 310 miles on one charge and reach 80% of its battery capacity after charging for just 15 minutes. Tesla's Model S can travel 294 miles per charge.

Drivers will have multiple options when they need to charge the vehicle. They will be able to use a traditional cable or simply drive the car so it sits on top of a charging base plate that can refill its battery without having to plug anything into the car. The car's interior will be very responsive to drivers, with the ability to track the driver's eyes and adjust the dashboard display based on what the driver wants to see.

-Porsche's Mission E may start at $US75,000, around $US10,000 less than expected.
-The company's first fully-electric car is set to be released in 2019.
-The Mission E is expected to come in three models that range from 402 to 670 horsepower.

Yup, if you can do 800Km on one charge a 15 minute break will be welcome I reckon. Get semis to that stage and it is game over.

Developments like this are why I do not despair about AGW. While governments by and large do fuck all, or even go backwards by encouraging fossil fuel use with subsidies etc the world is changing around them because renewables are cheaper than coal and becoming cheaper every day.

Technological progress will be in the field of electric vehicles, battery technology and renewable energy, not fossil fuel use. Can’t beat economics.

it has an almost 500km range, not 800.

not that it makes a difference, if you're driving 500k's and you should be taking several breaks

The tech is there they just need initial customers to bring down the prices!

As far as semi trailers are concerned 15 minute breaks are too short anyway so this all adds up to health and safety being improved!
