Porsche has installed a charging station using its new 800 V 350 kW fast charging system at its technology center in Berlin-Adlershof. The Porsche High Power Charging (HPC) station is liquid-cooled, and uses CCS connectors.
The new tech center also features a 25-meter-high solar pylon that is expected to generate up to 30,000 kWh of electricity annually – enough to cover the entire annual demand of the adjacent Porsche Center.
Porsche says its Mission E, which it plans to bring to market by 2020, will be the first production vehicle with 800-volt charging technology.
The company is building another charging station to test the new HPC technology at its US headquarters in Atlanta. Porsche, Audi, BMW, Daimler and Ford are partnering on the creation of an HPC network in Europe, with power levels up to 350 kW. An initial target of about 400 sites is planned.
