Porsche Planning Its Own Fast-Charging Stations

Porsche is looking into making the recharging experience special and unique like its vehicles


  • They’ll have lounge areas.

  • Locations will be along the more important European highways and motorways.


Some automakers figured out years ago that their vehicles are only part of the “services” they need to provide potential and existing customers. For many of the latter, they’re looking into an experience. As Porsche prepares to roll out more EVs, they are planning on building their own network of charging stations which will be like no others.

The idea behind this plan is to make the downtime, however short it might be, associated with charging an EV, as pleasant and relaxing as possible. This is why Porsche wants to create its own network that will offer customers a high-quality, brand-appropriate charging experience. This will involve lounging areas with numerous self-service facilities.

The stations will complement the Ionity network and hold six to 12 charging points with a capacity of 350kW or more. As a reminder, the Taycan will go from a 5-80% charge in about 22 minutes on a 350kW charger.

An important prerequisite for electromobility is fast and convenient charging,” says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “That is why we are currently working on the details of a concept for our own fast-charging stations. We will select attractive locations for these in order to offer our customers the most comfortable and fastest long-distance travel experience possible.”

The press release specifies Europe only for the moment and there are no dates for when the project might begin.
