With a network of charging points at hotels, museums and airports, Porsche wants to provide its own electric customers with convenient charging stops.
Although Porsche is also a partner in the fast-charging network Ionity, the Swabians are investing in yet another global charging network. The “Porsche Destination Charging” program brings alternating current (AC) charging points to selected locations that are particularly frequently visited by electric car drivers: Hotels, airports, museums, shopping malls, sports venues and marinas. To date, Porsche says 1,035 charging points are available in around 20 countries, with around 900 more locations to be added by the end of 2020.
The charging points have a charging capacity of 11 kW.
Free of charge for Porsche customers
Porsche customers with a Taycan or a plug-in hybrid model can park and charge there free of charge. In principle, however, all compatible electric cars can plug into the Type 2 connector. The respective operators decide what prices apply to non-Porsche customers. A flat rate or a completely free charging offer for all is possible. In Germany, charging is usually based on a flat rate; according to Porsche, the basis for the flat rate is an average price of 33 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh).
