Porsche shows off Cayman e-volution at Electric Vehicle Symposium

Apparently this technology was also manufactured for the Cayman e-volution which not only proves its viability but also that it will likely debut alongside the new Mission E.

This version of the small sports vehicle is also a preview of the Mission E, which will be Porsche's first all-electric model that is due to come into production in 2019.

Porsche has developed an electric Cayman.

A Porsche Cayman E-Volution Prototype has appeared at the at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart pointing at Porsche's electric future. The Mission E will be capable of covering a range of over 500 kilometres, and will be able to charge its batteries to 80 per cent within just 15 minutes.

We assume the E-Volution comes with a similar setup to the Mission-E as it will hit 62mph in 3.3 seconds - much quicker than any ICE Cayman - although it clearly has a modest battery pack with a range of just 124 miles - less than a third of the Mission-E.

With Porsche Turbo Charging, the sports auto manufacturer is also showcasing its first ever accumulator-based fast charging system, which is capable of achieving a charging capacity of up to 320 kW per vehicle or twice 160 kW.

What's even better news about this system is that it will be amiable across the higher-trafficked areas of Europe and is being made in collaboration with the VW Group, Mercedes, BMW and Ford, which means cars by these companies will also be able to create cars that are compatible with it.

The German sports vehicle manufacturer will work in collaboration with Audi, BMW, Daimler and Ford to build a fast-charging network on major European traffic routes by 2020. You can find out more details about this one off electric Porsche at the link below.
