Porsche Mission-E may also get coupe and convertible models: But no E-Mission based SUV, here’s why

The new Porsche Mission E platform might spawn multiple models and hence, the possibility of a coupe and convertible cannot be ruled out. The electric motor in the car churns out 600 bhp and it can hit an impressive top speed of 250 kmph.

Porsche has recently showcased its Mission-E electric concept at the Geneva Motor Show 2018. For those not in the know, the Porsche Mission E is the first fully electric vehicle that will be introduced sometime next year. The Porsche Mission-E will not underpin any SUV due to the fact that its platform is not suited for vehicles with a ground clearance. According to a report on CarAndDriver, Porsche has recently revealed that the new Mission-E concept platform will be ready for two-door and convertible and hence, there is a healthy possibility that these models will likely make their way into the market. The Porsche Mission-E will use an all-new permanent magnet electric motor and these are completely different when compared with the motors used on the Audi e-Tron. The motive behind using such electric motors is that Porsche wanted to offer a constant top speed and develop a car that can repeat its acceleration times.

However, it is not necessary that all Porsche Mission E models will come equipped with the said motor and an all-wheel-drive system. The company has said that it is also considering an option of a rear wheel drive. The Porsche Mission E will have a combined power output of 600 bhp and thanks to this impressive figure, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.5 seconds. The top speed of the car is pegged at 250 kmph. Having said that, the Porsche Mission E will lock its horns with the Tesla Model S. However, the prime benefit of the new Porsche Mission E will be its configurable platform.

The company further added that we will try to regenerate energy in the Mission E as much as we can but at the same time, we will need to have the car stable.  More details on the new Porsche Mission E to be unwrapped in the coming days!
