Porsche is developing all-electric Macan and 718 automobiles, as well as its own charging network.

Porsche Car Charging

Porsche has made a unique move by announcing plans to construct its own network of charging stations for electric vehicles. EV sales will account for 80% of the company’s revenue by 2030, according to the company.

An all-electric Macan small SUV and 718 sports car were unveiled at the automaker’s annual meeting as part of the company’s EV expansion ambitions.

As of now, charging for Porsche EVs must be arranged through third parties. EV charging provider Ionity, a joint venture with Ford, BMW, Daimler, and Porsche-parent firm Volkswagen, has a cooperation with the carmaker, which offers the Porsche Taycan as well as various plug-in hybrid vehicles. It was previously thought that Porsche was just interested in using Tesla’s Superchargers as a model for its own EV charging network.

The first chargers will be installed by the end of the year in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, along highly trafficked lines. The Ionity charging network in Europe will be supplemented by Porsche-branded charging stations that will be “exclusively for Porsche consumers,” according to the business.

Porsche anticipates that its EV sales, which are expected to account for 80 percent of total sales by 2030, will be boosted by the purchase of high-end charging stations. By 2024, the business intends to be able to begin mass manufacture of its batteries.

EV owners may have a drink and relax while their cars are being charged at Porsche’s luxury lounge charging stations. It’s possible that the network might be expanded into China and the United States in the future, according to executives.

According to the carmaker, the next-generation mid-engine 718 will only be powered by electric motors. The 718 will be based on the Mission R, a motorsport concept developed by Audi. However, the 718 EV won’t be released until 2025, although the Macan crossover will be available shortly.
