Porsche Workers Agree To Get Paid Less In Order To Build The Mission E

In another episode of the VW emissions scandal, a report surfaced telling that Porsche’s plant workers have agreed to concessions in order to secure production of the Mission E electric sports sedan.

Workers at the Zuffenhausen plant agreed to a series of cost-cutting measures in order for Porsche to build the Tesla-rivalling Mission E there.

These according to a report from German magazine Automobilwoche, include steps to raise the workweek from 34 to 35 hours and reduce a part of a scheduled pay increase between 2016 and 2025, .

A company spokesman then told Reuters that the “employer and employees have jointly drawn up measures that have led to the decision of producing the Mission E model at Zuffenhausen,” essentially confirming the report of the magazine.

Porsche has already announced a billion euros investment at the Zuffenhausen plant, in order to develop and build the production version of the all-electric Mission E saloon.

The concept was revealed at the last Frankfurt Motor Show, using two electric motors for a combined output of over 600hp which are then sent to all four wheels and a new, innovative 800-volt battery technology which can charge the battery up to 80 per cent in around 15 minutes, with the officials claiming over 310 miles (500km) of total driving range on a single charge.
