The installation of over 900 destination charging stations is planned by the end of this year. The charging points are located at hotels, airports, museums, shopping malls, sports clubs, and marinas. Porsche customers with a Taycan or one of it’s plug-in hybrid models can charge their electric vehicles for free at these sites.
Porsche provides programme partners with free charging hardware. Individual companies as well as corporate groups are invited to apply online to join the programme.
“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: www.destination-charging.eu.
We have been saying for a while that when it comes to charging infrastructure, automakers should just copy Tesla’s model. Porsche smartly did with its new Tesla’s “Porsche Destination Charging,” which appears to be inspired by Tesla’s charging network of the same name.
Tesla has two charging networks. The Supercharger network is the best-known, but the automaker has also been operating its “Destination Charging network” for the last five years.
Unlike the Supercharger network, which primarily enables long-distance travel with short charging stops, the Destination Charing network focuses on level 2 charging stations at locations where the drivers are expected to spend more time, like hotels, restaurants, and shopping centers.
