Porsche's All-Electric Super Sedan Expected by 2020

With electric-mobility continuously on the rise, Porsche has announced their intention to bring about "a new chapter in the history of the sports car."

The Mission E four-door concept car made its debut in September, at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. Attendees were highly impressed with the vehicles "emotional design," and commanding 600-horsepower output. Today it was announced that the high-performance electric sports car will leave the world of concepts, and become reality by the year 2020. With an investment of nearly 700 million euros in the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen facility, Porsche will build a new assembly plant, and expand the current engine factory to accommodate the production of electric motors. The exciting new project will create more than 1,000 new jobs.

Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG, was emphatic about the company's intentions, saying: "With Mission E, we are making a clear statement about the future of the brand. Even in a greatly changing motoring world, Porsche will maintain its front-row position with this fascinating sports car."
