Porsche builds electric Cayman to showcase new EV tech
Oct 13 2017 by Joanne Wise
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. The vehicle will not go into series production, but does give an early indication of just how sporty Porsche believes e-mobility can be.
Looking like a pretty bog-standard pre-718 Cayman, the E-Volution comes with a graphic on the side which says "Turbo Charging".
The one-off Porsche Cayman e-volution offers a range of 201 kilometres and can sprint from 0-100kph in just 3.3 seconds, which is just over a second quicker than the 718 Cayman S, now the most powerful version of the sports auto in production.
Capable of sprinting from 0 - 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and having a maximum range of 200 km, the Cayman e-volution concept brings together zero emissions driving along with quick recharging solutions.
Porsche claims that the Mission E will be able to travel more than 300 miles on a single charge, and that its batteries can be topped up to 80 per cent capacity in just 15 minutes.
Porsche also displayed its Turbo Charging system, which uses an accumulator-based fast-charging setup that is capable to get up to a charging capacity of 320kw. It was developed for use in areas that have power limitations within the distribution system.
The auto comes with a range of 200 kilometers and a 0 to 62 miles per hour rime of just 3.3 seconds. The battery-based system was created to supplement more traditional fast-charger networks hooked up to the grid, one of which will be built in Europe by 2020.
