Porsche focused on making Mission E feel like a “real Porsche”
German automaker Porsche’s Mission E electric vehicle (EV) is not scheduled to go into production for another year, but the automaker has been gradually marketing the vehicle.
The Porsche Mission E -- which was first unveiled by the automaker in 2015 at the International Motor Show (IAA) -- has often been described in most media reports as a ‘Tesla killer.’
However, with Porsche apparently not liking the term being used by the media, Stefan Weckbach -- Porsche’s Head of the BEV Model Series -- has said in recent comments that the main objective of the automaker is to ensure that Mission E has the overall feeling of a “real Porsche.”
Weckbach also commended US electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors for its relentless efforts in the EV arena, and said that Tesla has been doing “a wonderful job driving electric mobility.”
Weckbach’s comments that Porsche wants its Mission E electric car to really feel “like a Porsche” were made recently, when he took a few people along for getting test drives in the Mission E Cross Turismo CUV in California. Describing the Mission E Cross Turismo as a “road-ready” vehicle, Weckbach said: “The CUV is especially interesting because some near-series elements are already being used in the interior.”
