Porsche Asia Pacific and Shell are establishing a cross-border HPC corridor in Southeast Asia, comprising 12 charging points at six Shell service stations strategically located along Malaysia's north-south highway.
This will allow drivers of electric cars to charge at up to 180 kW between Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Penang. The chargers are equipped with two CCS Type 2 charging plugs and allow a single vehicle to be charged at said 180 kW or two vehicles to be charged simultaneously at up to 90 kW each. The service will be rolled out in phases, with four stations ready in the second half of 2021 and two more in the first half of 2022.
The new charging points will complement the 175kW HPC stations available at all Porsche Centres in Malaysia, and the German sports car manufacturer says they will also enrich its growing "Porsche Destination Charging" network - with charging points at hotels, airports, sports clubs and other points of contact.
"As Porsche, we see great potential in the ASEAN markets and the opportunity to shape electromobility in the region. Our high-performance charging network in Singapore and Malaysia is a lighthouse project that other countries will follow," expresses Matthias Becker, Head of Overseas Region and Growth Markets at Porsche.porsche.com
