The Porsche Taycan is coming this year and now it looks like owners of the new all electric sports car will get free charging in the US.
Porsche has announced that owners of the new Taycan will receive unlimited 30 minutes charging with Electrify America in the US. The company has more that 300 highway charging stations in 42 states in the US and also 184 stations in 17 metro regions.
Electrify America highway and metro stations, and many Porsche dealers, will offer DC fast charging at rates up to 350 kilowatts. Using 800 volt technology and the combined charging system (CCS) plug, the Taycan will be able to add more than 60 miles of range in four minutes – the fastest in today’s automotive market.
“Every Porsche is a sports car with soul, and the Taycan is soul electrified,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. “Together, Electrify America and our Porsche dealer network will provide a national infrastructure for DC fast charging that frees future Taycan owners from range anxiety. And Porsche home charging technology will turn the customer’s garage into the equivalent of a personal gas station.”
Porsche recently announced that due to the high demand for the new Porsche Taycan, they had doubled their production from 20,000 cars a year to 40,000 cars a year.
