Porsche to spend $1 billion on new electric car plant, create jobs

Porsche gives its Tesla killer the green light: Mission E can be charged simply by driving over a special tile and has a holographic dashboard controlled just by LOOKING at it.

In September, Porsche showed off the Mission E, a fully electric and fully beautiful concept made to dethrone Tesla motors as the EV industry’s king of cool.Porsche boasts its new Mission E concept h can go from zero to 100 km/h acceleration in under 3.5 seconds, will take just 15 minutes to charge to 80% of its 500km range. The four-door car, which looks like a futuristic version of today’s Porsche Panamera, will be able to go 310 miles on a single charge, Porsche has boasted.

It also says the car will have a radical dashboard boasting ‘Instruments intuitively operated by eye-tracking and gesture control, some even via holograms.’ Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) – similar to those used in this year’s Le Mans victor, the 919 hybrid – accelerate the sports car and recover braking energy. When the car was unveiled in September, a Porsche spokesperson only said that “production of the car would be feasible within the near future.” The car is part of a bigger push by Volkswagen Group into electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids. Via the 800-volt port, the battery can be charged to approximately 80 per cent of its capacity in around 15 minutes – a record time for electric vehicles. As an alternative, the technology platform can be connected to a conventional 400-volt charging station, or it can be replenished at home in the garage via convenient inductive charging by simply parking over a coil embedded in the floor of the garage from which the energy is transferred without cables to a coil on the car’s underbody.

Porsche, which faces increasingly strict fuel emission standards from US and European authorities, been working with batteries for a few years now, with top notch results. The company has had to set aside millions of dollars to deal with potential fines and the costs of refitting as many as 11 million diesel cars to meet emissions standards.
