Taycan Owners to Receive Three Years of Free Charging
Porsche partners up with Electrify America to help new Taycan owners move across the U.S. with tons of fast charging.
As we get closer to the grand debut of Porsche’s first-ever all-electric luxury performance car, the Taycan, there’s now an added benefit to ownership for the first ones to bring home this amazing technological wonder: free charging.
In a partnership with Electrify America, Taycan owners will have free access to the service provider’s public charging stations for three years, which is only one part of a three-prong approach to make ownership of Porsche’s first EV as smooth as the car’s ride.
“Every Porsche is a sports car with soul, and the Taycan is soul electrified,” said Porsche North America chief Klaus Zellmer. “Together, Electrify America and our Porsche dealer network will provide a national infrastructure for DC fast charging that frees future Taycan owners from range anxiety. And Porsche home charging technology will turn the customer’s garage into the equivalent of a personal gas station.”
The first prong is the aforementioned partnership, which will provide three years of unlimited 30-minute charging at Electrify America’s 300-plus highway stations and 180-plus metro stations across most of the United States. The second prong sees all 191 Porsche dealerships installing chargers of their own, 120 of them using the company’s own Porsche Turbo Charging DC chargers. The third and final prong is home charging provided by Porsche, though details are still being worked out as of this writing.
The first Turbo Chargers are available for future Taycan owners at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, with PEC Los Angeles expected to receive theirs soon. No matter how owners charge, though, they won’t have to worry about range anxiety creeping up on their joy of owning Porsche’s finest technological masterpiece to date.
