Porsche gives singer Adam Levine chance to drive Mission E prototype
In a move which apparently underscores an effort by Porsche to gradually ramp up the marketing of its first all-electric vehicle Mission E, the automaker recently gave singer Adam Levine a chance to drive the Mission E prototype.
Levine, a Porsche enthusiast, got the opportunity to drive the Porsche Mission E prototype a few days after the automaker gave the vehicle to pro-driver Mark Webber for a test drive last week.
Porsche’s marketing of the Mission E had commenced more than a year back, even though the vehicle is not likely to hit the markets before the latter part of 2019. Currently, the Mission E is in its test program.
Webber and Levine are among the very few people who have actually taken a test drive of the Porsche Mission E. Both of them are apparently on the automaker’s payroll, and are, thus, not exactly unbiased individuals to have tested the vehicle.
After driving the Mission E prototype recently, Levine said that the all-electric car from Porsche is an “amazing” vehicle, and also added that he could have driven the vehicle forever. Earlier, Webber, who test drove the Mission E last week, had interestingly compared the vehicle with other cars manufactured by Porsche.
