The number of 100 Porsche-owned HPC locations in Europe was already the subject of speculation in the summer, but now a company spokesman told the "Wirtschaftswoche" newspaper that the figure was between ten and 15 locations in Germany - "mainly in the direction of the Alpine ski resorts".
A concrete location outside of Germany has also already been confirmed: a Porsche charging park with up to twelve fast charging stations is to be built at the Brenner Pass between Austria and Italy. Piquant: VW boss Herbert Diess was unable to charge at the Ionity station at the Brenner Pass during his ID.3 tour to Italy in the summer and vented his anger via LinkedIn post. However, the VW boss will not be able to draw electricity with his ID.3 at the announced Porsche fast chargers entirely without special rights.
At Volkswagen's "Power Day" in March, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume announced Porsche's own HPC charging network along important traffic routes in addition to the Ionity locations. At the time, it was said that in future each location would offer between six and twelve charging points with a capacity of 350 kW, a roof and also comfortable places to stay while charging. With its exclusive charging network, Porsche wants to guarantee its customers charging processes without queues - Taycan drivers will be able to reserve a charging slot via smartphone.
