Porsche CEO Oliver Blume has confirmed that the company will produce a new flagship electric SUV. Porsche also wants 80 percent of its global sales to be EVs by 2030, with plans to make its 718 Cayman sports cars electric only around 2035.

The new car will be built in Leipzig and will reportedly share the technology with the Mission R electric race car that Porsche unveiled last September.

That concept car features a 900-volt electrical system that the company says can charge from 5 to 80 percent in 15 minutes with the proper charging system. The Mission R is powered by two electric motors, a 429 hp unit on the front axle and a 644 hp unit powering the rear. Power to the motors is generated by an 80.0 kWh battery.
