“Porsche Destination Charging”: More than 1,000 charging points in operation

Porsche is investing in establishing a global charging network: The “Porsche Destination Charging” programme includes a total of 1,035 AC charging stations in around 20 countries. The installation of a further 900 is planned by the end of this year. The charging points are located at selected hotels, airports, museums, shopping malls, sports clubs and marinas. Porsche customers with a Taycan or plug-in hybrid models can charge their vehicles for free at these sites.

 

“Thanks to ‘Porsche Destination Charging’, we are adding particularly popular locations to our charging network while also highlighting our claim to be a driver of the expansion of electric mobility. By the end of 2020, we aim to provide a total of 2,000 charging locations,” declares Martin Urschel, Vice President Smart Mobility Sales & Operations at Porsche.

 

The programme will be available on all markets in which Porsche offers plug-in hybrid models and fully electric cars for sale. In Europe, the offer extends from Germany, Spain and Italy to the Benelux countries and some Eastern European markets. However, with “Porsche Destination Charging” a dense network of charging stations will also be established in other countries like Brazil. Porsche provides programme partners with free charging hardware. Individual companies as well as corporate groups are invited to apply online to join the programme: https://www.destination-charging.eu/.
