Porsche showcased a new concept car Mission E at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Porsche CEO Oliver Blume talked about Mission E concept. He said that the Mission E is going to look very close the concept that they introduced two years ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Blume pointed out that the Mission E does not have the internal double combustion engine. Blume noted that it might not be the best car by Porsche. Without the combustion engine or the framework design that is iconic to Porsche, the car has been introduced as a bridge between Panamera and 911.

Mission E will launch with 350kW fast-charging. This will allow a quarter-hour recharge to 400 km (250 miles). Total range with a full battery will be 500 km (300 miles). Porsche has said that its Le Mans 919 hybrid racing experience helped it develop the fast-charging tech.

The car is scheduled to go on sale in 2019. This will set Porsche ahead in the electric car department. It is not going to set it as a complete competitor to Tesla however the car will start its price tag at $80,000 to $90,000 which will be more attractive to a lot of people who cannot afford Tesla.
