Porsche starts to prepare for the future with charges in Berlin.
As Porsche is planning on launching its all electric Mission E-sedan in 2019 the German marque has installed a number of 350 kW chargers at a dealership in Berlin.
The charges offer fast-charging abilities and feature a Huber-Suhner liquid-cooler charging cable, allowing the Mission E's battery pack to be charged up to 80 percent in just 15 minutes. In addition, they will be able to charge lower-powered EVs and provide a glimpse at the company's electrified future.
The Mission E still needs to arrive in the streets, but Porsche has both the Cayenne S E-Hybrid and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid in its range and while the duo only uses small battery packs and low-powered electric motors the Panamera Turbo S e-Hybrid is the most potent variant in the second-gen Panamera range, delivering 671 horsepower.
It is thought the Mission E will have the same 800-volt drive system as the concept and arrive at dealerships with two electric motors and large battery. Also expected to deliver around 592 horsepower, allowing the electric sedan to hit 100 km/h in a brisk 3.5 seconds.
