Porsche E-Mobility – With All Due respect (Video)

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.

Oh Brother! Talk about laying it on thick.
The self congratulatory tone of this commercial is rather hard to swallow, with all due respect.

Maybe folks don’t want an all-electric Porsche, to replace their Teslas. …EREV, energy density “when you need it”, battery “when you don’t”.

There is no passenger BEV that doubles as an adequate track car. Where a distinct minority of Porsche owners do go to the track, EREV will be for these people.

Tesla is more preoccupied with making good on “Autopilot”, than letting drivers drive the cars themselves. Whether BEV, or EREV, this slice of the market is ripe for the taking.

Quoting the article:

“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).”

How ironic, since by definition a hybrid vehicle is a compromise.

No Alanis, it’s not ironic.

An appointment via the Autobahn will demonstrate why German companies operate like… German companies! An appointment as close as, say, twelve minutes:

Or perhaps you think Porsche buyers should lower their standards to your deal? Some of the most discretionary purchasers, purchasing what is understood to _not_ be a daily driver?

You think daily commuting in Germany is driving 40-45 minutes at 125+mph? 40 miles eaxh direction at 125+mph? Or did you mot understand the information in that article/video?

Mr X

Well yes, there is many people in Germany that commute almost an hour to work (at around 80mph) and there is many that commute home on the weekends (with cars worth 50+thousand USD) who go late Fri or Sun night for a few hours 110+mph. If you pay 90thousand USD for a car like a Porsche, BMW, Audi… you don’t want to be limited in range or speed on an autobahn. Otherwise you buy a Golf which costs less than half and still goes 100mph for hours…
