Porsche Asia Pacific and Shell will partner to deploy public fast chargers at six Shell stations strategically located along Malaysia’s North-South highway, offering EV drivers the possibility of convenient travel between Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Penang.
Each of the six Shell stations will be equipped with a 180 kW fast charger with two CCS Type 2 charging connectors, allowing a single vehicle to charge at up to 180 kW, or two vehicles to charge simultaneously at up to 90 kW. Four stations are to open in the second half of 2021, and two additional stations by the first half of 2022.
The automaker already has 175 kW chargers available at all Porsche Centres in Malaysia, and also operates the Porsche Destination Charging network at selected hotels, airports, sports clubs and other venues.
“The ASEAN markets hold strong potential for Porsche to unlock and we see an opportunity to shape electric mobility in the region,” says Porsche VP Matthias Becker. “Our high-performance charging network across Singapore and Malaysia will serve as a lighthouse project for other countries to follow.”
