Porsche has connected its first fast-charging park featuring 800V technology to the electricity grid. Four parking spaces at the Porsche dealership at the Berlin-Adlershof Technology Park in Germany are now equipped with the OEM’s charging infrastructure equipment, with two spaces featuring 800V charging developed by Porsche Engineering Services.
The other two spaces feature voltage levels of approximately 400V. The Porsche Taycan, due to arrive on the market in 2019, will be the first series production vehicle to feature the 800V charging capability.
The park was designed as a pilot project to test the fast-charging technology, with a view to integrating the infrastructure at other Porsche centers.
“In this rapidly evolving world of mobility, we are consistently preparing ourselves for the launch of the first fully electric Porsche model, the Taycan,” said Karsten Sohns, managing director of Porsche Deutschland.
“Having an appropriate charging infrastructure at our Porsche sites and beyond is an essential component of our strategy.”
