Ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show starting this week, Porsche introduced a new all-electric concept: the Mission E. The four-seat sport car is a first for the luxury car brand. The company is aiming for high performance with 440 kW output, 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and over 310 miles of range (500 km).

As usual, when talking about electric range with an European car company, always keep in mind that range is most likely based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), which is known to be less restrictive than the EPA standard.

In an overview of the concept, Porsche says the car would be introduced with a new 800-volt charging technology that could charge the Mission E to 80% capacity in 15 minutes.

There’s no word on when or even if Porsche plans to bring the concept to market.
