Porsche Thailand opens 'Destination Charger' for EVs and PHEVs
As part of its Destination Charger Phase 1 network, Porsche Thailand plans to build DC high-power EV chargers around the country this year in an effort to increase the number of Porsche customers driving electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
After first introducing the Destination Charger concept back in 2020, Porsche received excellent response from Porsche EV users as well as EV users from other brands. Because of this, they have continued to expand the charging infrastructure and refine their environmental campaign.
Porsche has collaborated with its partner to open four new charging facilities in Bangkok community malls -- La Villa Aree, Ekamai Power Center, Marketplace Krungthep Kreetha and J Avenue Thong Lor -- in order to encourage people to use EVs and PHEVs. The four stations represent the first phase of the project, while the second phase will see another eight charging stations being built around the country.
DC is the fastest way to charge an electric vehicle because it is carried out directly from the charging head to the battery. The battery can then be charged from 10-80% within just half an hour.
EV charging ecosystem specialist Sharge is partnering with Porsche Thailand to provide an environmentally friendly and sustainable lifestyle through quick-charge technology, including Sharge Management and its network applications for reserving charging heads.
