Porsche earlier this week released a new interview with Uew Michael, the company's head of Electrics/Electronics Development at Porsche. As part of the interview, which covered a broad range of topics, Michael divulged some interesting details about the company's highly anticipated Mission E, a premium EV with a sticker price of $85,000 that will presumably compete with Tesla at the high-end of the EV market.
Of particular interest were Michael's remarks regarding Porsche superchargers. While it's easy to focus on traditional metrics like raw acceleration when discussing EVs, it's important to remember that one of the reasons underlying Tesla's success in recent years has been the company's ongoing interest in rolling out Supercharger stations at strategic highway locations all across the world.
