100th IONITY HPC-Park Goes Into Operation
Just a few months ahead of the world premiere of the Taycan, the first fully electric sports car from Porsche, the development of the High Performance Charging infrastructure from IONITY in Europe also comes closer to the finish line. Founded in 2017, the joint venture from Porsche and Audi for the Volkswagen Group as well as BMW, Daimler and Ford opened it is 100th High Power Charging Point (HPC) in May.
The location in Rygge, Norway, offers 6 charging points and state-of-the-art charging technology with 350 kW charging power and is equipped with the European charging standard Combined Charging System (CCS). A further 6 charging points are prepared, with space to expand to up to 18 HPC stations if required.
Next to the 100th (HPC) site there are a further 51 sites under construction. All over Europe, there will be 400 sites in business until the year 2020. For about 95% of the planned stations, the contracts with the respective site owners have already been signed.
The Porsche Taycan will make its debut in September, and market launch is scheduled to take place before the end of the year. The first purely electrically-powered sports car from Porsche offers a range of about 500 km and can take on the energy to travel 100 km in just about 4 minutes. More than 20,000 people around the world, with serious interest in buying one of their own, have made a deposit.
“With the Taycan, we are shaping the future of e-mobility at all levels,” says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “This includes an intelligent ecosystem with coordinated charging options - at home and on the move. We are not only expanding the charging infrastructure in Europe with IONITY, we are also establishing a fast-charging infrastructure at our worldwide Porsche Centres and charging facilities at popular destinations, such as restaurants and hotels.”
