Porsche takes a significant stride towards electrification infrastructure with the launch of its first Porsche Charging Lounge, located near Bingen am Rhein in Germany. As part of its ambitious plan to establish fast-charging stations along Europe’s major routes, Porsche aims to deliver a premium charging experience that aligns with the brand’s reputation.

Strategically positioned close to busy routes with high traffic flow, the Charging Lounge operates 24/7 and ensures quick and efficient charging performance, addressing the needs of Porsche drivers on long journeys. The high-performance chargers, developed by the South Tyrolean electronic specialist Alpitronic, currently offer a maximum of 300 kW but have the potential for future upgrades to reach charging speeds of 400 kW per charging point. Importantly, the charging processes rely on power generated from certified renewable sources, contributing to Porsche’s commitment to sustainable mobility.

The establishment of exclusive Porsche Charging Lounges plays a crucial role in creating a high-performance and dense fast-charging network, supporting this electrification mission. These lounges become part of the IONITY network, offering barrier-free and state-of-the-art charging facilities.
