2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid

Porsche released video about its e-mobility efforts.

With three models introduced on the market and at least two in the pipe-line - all plug-in hybrids (plus learnings from the entire VW/Audi group), the German manufacturer already gathered a lot of experience.

Many of us wonder whether Porsche will be able to develop all-electric cars, which from day one would be in competition with Tesla.

In the video we hear "no compromises", which for a long time was used in relation to range in promoting plug-in hybrids. If we understand the intention right, there will be no all-electric Porsche in the near future (few years).

Porsche (a CCS alliance member) needs to solve the high power charging problem (at over 100 kW) as there is no Combo network to support long-range driving like Tesla Superchargers.

"Hybrid technology and mobility. For us at Porsche, it's about nothing less than proving that efficiency and sports performance can go hand in hand. Which is why we are going even further in the development of our drive concepts. And yet it's about more than putting together our different types of drive. It's about making mobility in the 21st century a subject that will continue into the future. The Porsche way. With racing sport experience for series production. With more ideas per hp. Our solution is e-mobility.
