Porsche reportedly planning electric-only model to sit below Panamera range

Porsche’s potential baby-Panamera (aka the Pajun) has been in the news for some time.

Latest report by Auto Motor und Sport says the Pajun project is back on the table, but with some big changes.

The German publication reports that the new smaller saloon was intended to come out with conventional petrol and diesel engines, along with a hybrid, but as the segment is already very crowded the project has taken a major turn and the Pajun is is rumoured to arrive as a pure all-electric vehicle.

This new EV is reported to have a range between 350 and 400 km (217 and 248 miles), which is quite similar to Tesla’s Model S, though it wouldn’t be a straight competitor to the Model S as it would be smaller in size.

The Pajun is expected to be 4.6 metres in length, while the Model S is much longer at 4.97 metres.

The real-life rival from Porsche to Model S would be all-electric Panamera, which could also happen with the next generation model.

The Pajun (production name will change) is expected to borrow a big part of the technology from the upcoming second generation Panamera with market launch likely in 2018 or 2019.
