Porsche has previewed an all-electric Cayman at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart.
Officially dubbed the Cayman e-volution, the car will not go into production, rather it “hints at what is to come in 2019,” when the German manufacturer’s first all-electric production car, the Mission E, will be launched.
Boasting a charging voltage of 800 volts, the Cayman e-volution can accelerate from standing to 62 mph in 3.3 seconds and cover 124 miles on a single charge.
The Mission E will be capable of covering a range of more than 310 miles while charging its batteries to 80 percent will take just 15 minutes.
To achieve that, Porsche has created its new Turbo Charging facility, a system capable of reaching a charging capacity of up to 320kW per vehicle.
Developed by Porsche Engineering and ADS-TEC, the system will be part of a Europe-wide charger network, which Porsche alongside partners Audi, BMW, Daimler and Ford, will roll out across major European traffic routes by 2020.
