Porsche has announced that it has now expanded its electric vehicle charging network to 49,000 charging points in Europe.
The company has 49,000 charging points in 12 countries which include Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Norway, France and Spain. New points are also coming to the UK and Italy.
The Porsche Charging Service, the digital platform for all charging-related services, was launched in May 2018. The service searches for suitable charging stations and performs invoicing via centrally stored payment details. It is therefore not necessary to register with different providers. This takes place across the covered countries at a guaranteed unit price per market and independent of currency. The corresponding free app and the Porsche navigation system guide customers to the selected charging station.
Information on the location and availability of charging stations and on the price for vehicle charging are available in real-time. At the charging station, user identification takes place either by QR code via the app or with the so-called “Porsche ID Card”, which users receive free of charge after registering for the service.
Porsche is launching their new electric sports car, the Porsche Taycan soon, the car has been popular so far before its launch as Porsche has had to double production.
