Porsche Cayman e-volution electric concept paves the way for the future

Porsche has pulled the covers off an all-electric version of its Cayman sports vehicle.

With that said, Porsche is is still looking to further the development of EV tech after recently revealing the Cayman e-volution concept at the 2017 Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart.

When Porsche decided it was going to go ahead with its Mission E concept for 2019, it also made the bold claim that it would develop a charging system that could juice up the auto with an 80-percent charge in just 15 minutes.

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. But this isn't some sort of forced induction for the Cayman, but an electric powertrain.

The Porsche Cayman E-Volution may be just a Prototype, but it gives a pretty clear indication of what's to come from electric Porsches.

The accumulator-based fast charging system has been developed by Porsche and ADS TEC and can deliver a charging capacity of 320kW.

Porsche say if this vehicle had been built, it would be able to get from 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds - which is faster than the current Cayman S production model - and have a range of 124 miles. With a range of 300 miles the Mission E will be able to charge 80 per cent of its battery capacity in just 15 minutes and will be competing against other premium EVs, such as the Tesla Model S.

What's even better news about this system is that it will be amiable across the higher-trafficked areas of Europe and is being made in collaboration with the VW Group, Mercedes, BMW and Ford, which means cars by these companies will also be able to create cars that are compatible with it.
