Driving across Europe in an all-electric car will become much more convenient in the next few years. Porsche, among other car makers, is planning a broad network of quick-charge stations by 2020. Approximately 1,000 stations alongside major highways throughout Europe are planned.
The projected ultra-fast high-powered charging network with power levels up to 350 kW will be significantly faster than the most powerful charging system deployed today. The build-up is planned to start in 2017, with an initial target of about 400 sites in Europe. By 2020, customers should have access to many high-powered charging points. The goal is to enable long-distance travel through open-network charging stations along highways and major thoroughfares which to date, has not been feasible for most battery electric vehicle drivers. The charging experience is expected to evolve to be as convenient as refuelling at conventional fuel stations.
“There are two decisive aspects for us: ultra-fast charging and placing the charging stations at the right positions”, says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “Together, these two factors will enable us to travel in an all-electrically powered car as in a conventional combustion engine vehicle. As an automobile manufacturer, we actively shape our future, not only by developing all-electrically powered vehicles but by building up the necessary infrastructure as well.”

Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
