The mass-market, performance-grade EV industry has been dominated by Tesla for the past few years. With electric vehicles like the Model S and the Model X becoming a huge hit for consumers, Tesla has been mostly unchallenged when it comes to manufacturing vehicles that can perform on par with supercars at a price that is somewhat affordable. That is, of course, until Porsche decided to develop the Mission E.
According to a Motor Trend report, the Porsche Mission E was recently spotted in the streets of Germany. Interestingly, the Porsche EV was being driven alongside a Tesla Model S and Model X, leading many green car enthusiasts to believe that the German car was being tested against its American competitors.
While the Mission E might be Porsche's first real initiative to introduce a mass-market, midrange electric sedan to the market, the German carmaker has actually gained a lot of experience with green vehicles over the years. Its hybrid cars, such as the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid, after all, are considered as some of the best in the automotive world.
It is this expertise that Porsche would be bringing to the Mission E, and as could be seen in the recent sighting, it seems like the German carmaker is making sure that its first real entry into the midrange EV market would be a success. Simply put, the Mission E, at least in its current iteration, looks almost ready for production, and it is simply stunning.
