With more than 600 hp and over 300 miles of electric range the  Porsche  Mission E concept offers an even more amazing statistic—its speed. And no, we’re not talking about it’s 0-62 mph time of 3.5 seconds, which is impressive.



Debuting earlier this week at the VW Group Night on the even of the Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche has announced its new Tesla rival will come with a recharging speed unlike any other car, offering an 80 percent battery recharge in just 15 minutes.

Powered by an 800-volt drive system it makes use of two permanently-excited synchronous motors, similar to those used in the 919 hybrid race car, which topped the podium at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year.



And the racing connection doesn’t end there. Porsche claims its new Mission E Concept lapped the Nurburgring in under 8 minutes, making it one of the fastest sedans to ever do so.

The lithium-ion batteries sit low in the chassis, which is made of a mix of aluminum, steel and carbon fiber. The wheels themselves are also made of carbon fiber, measuring 21-inches in the front and 22-inches in the rear.

The car itself sits extremely low, with a height almost identical to a 911.
