Porsche last week opened a new EV-charging station in Leipzig, Germany. The facility has 12 350-kW DC fast-chargers and 4 22-kW AC chargers. The total capacity is 7 megawatts, making it Europe’s most powerful rapid-charge park, according to Porsche. EV drivers, regardless of vehicle brand, can use the facility free of charge through March – before a standard charging plan takes effect.
The Leipzig charge park allows Taycan drivers to add 100 km of range in 5 minutes. The charging time to go from 5% to 80% is 22.5 minutes in ideal conditions. Thanks to its 800-volt architecture, the Porsche Taycan is the only EV that can take advantage of 350-kilowatt chargers.
