Good news for people that care not only about the environment, but also about their social status.
Porsche AG enters into the all-electric segment and introduces a brand-new sedan known as the Pajun.
The Pajun adds a fifth model to the Porsche lineup, and while it will come with conventional drivetrains designed to compete with conventional automakers, engineers are putting extra effort into an all-electric model. The Pajun will use a shortened version of the Panamera’s MSB platform, and it will also aim to be substantially lighter than the Model S, which with its new Dual Motor Drive system can weight nearly 5,000-lbs. While Porsche has thus far invested heavily into hybrid technology including the 919 Hybrid spors car, the company may finally be ready to jump into fully-electric vehicles.
This vehicle will ride on a shortened wheelbase version of the next Panamera's MSB platform, and the company will aim to keep its weight below the Model S's 2190 kg while offering an output that comes out ahead of its 420 horsepower
Powering the Pajun will be a cutting-edge synchronous electric motor every bit as powerful as the motor(s) in the Model S, and a new battery developed in conjunction with corporate partner Audi could give it a driving range of 250 miles per charge or more. The battery could even be shared with the Audi R8 e-tron, but we think that Porsche AG will come up with something different since in four years time battery technology will advance to allow ranges from at least 350 to 400 kilometers.
Porsche is cutting edge
Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid sales have been raking in the high results, helping Porsche reach new sales heights.
Now they plan to expand the market by producing the Audi Q8 e-tron( an electric SUV aimed at competing with the upcoming Tesla Model X).
Porsche is also planning hybrid versions of all its models.
Development of the Pajun is still in its very early stages and the second sedan manufacturered by Porsche will not be sold until 2018, but we hope that the brand-new four-seater will turn out to be a very interesting electric vehicle.
Let's hope it'll be this way.
