Amongst its many features, the Taycan boasts Turbo Charging and our network of efficient Porsche Turbo Chargers is steadily growing. You can charge your Taycan with up to 270kW at 800-volt charging stations.
Swiss bank UBS has estimated that $360 billion will need to be spent over the next eight years to build global charging infrastructure to keep pace with electric car sales. Charging an electric vehicle away from home can be unpredictable, but Porsche is committed to relieving those concerns both abroad and here at home in the US.
Taycan Charging Capabilities
In terms of charging time and range, the Taycan also demonstrates what makes a genuine Porsche. Because we believe that a sports car should be ready to set off at all times, we do our utmost to facilitate simple charging that is integrated into everyday life. Our charging concept starts with the vehicle: the Performance Battery Plus with the latest lithium-ion technology is based on 800-volt architecture and, therefore, on a similar system to our endurance race car, the 919 Hybrid. Higher voltage means not only perceptibly more power and less weight, thanks to reduced cable size, but above all shorter charging times.
"Recharging at Electrify America's fast chargers doesn't let you doze or settle into a book like the old days—the Turbo S added 100 miles in 17 minutes at a 150-kW unit (seeing a peak of 138) and 11 minutes at a super-powerful 350-kW charger (peaking at 261 kW). Waiting for 150 miles needed 28 and 20 minutes, respectively.” - MOTORTREND
