Porsche Launches Field Tests With Electric Boxster

Porsche has launched the first of three purely electric-powered Boxster models, that are described as “mobile laboratories” for large-scale tests that will help Porsche gather feedback about electric cars, user behavior and their practicality.

Porsche will use this information for development of future products, which does not mean that the Boxster E is already confirmed for production.

The Boxster E is motivated by two electric motors that develop 214bhp and get their power from a 29 kWh battery pack. Porsche has not revealed any performance numbers, but says the Boxster E has the performance level of a Boxster S, meaning 0-60mph is expected in around 5.0 seconds.
