Porsche opens 7 MW rapid charging park in Germany

Porsche Leipzig is expanding the charging infrastructure for EVs in central Germany with its new Porsche Turbo Charging park. Porsche claims that the 7 MW facility, which is supplied entirely by renewable energy sources, is Europe’s most powerful rapid charging park. 

The facility includes four 22 kW AC charging points, twelve publicly-available CCS2 350 kW DC rapid charging points, and six 350 kW internal charging stations. During a month-long pilot phase, rapid charging will be free for all users. After that, payment will be made using the mobility providers’ standard charging cards. Depending on the vehicle model, up to 100 km of range can be added in just five minutes.

“The new charging park between the number 9, 14 and 38 motorways will significantly enrich the charging infrastructure in central Germany. Electric and hybrid vehicles of all brands are welcome, says Porsche Leipzig Chairman Gerd Rupp. “We are pleased that with the new charging park we can offer an attractive charging option for electric vehicle owners in Leipzig and the surrounding area, as well as transit passengers.”
