Porsche this week announced the expansion of its charging hub in Leipzig, Germany. The location is home to twelve DC fast chargers, each with a nameplate rating of 350 kW, as well as four 22 kW AC chargers. All energy is produced from renewable resources.

“The new charging park between the number 9, 14 and 38 motorways will significantly enrich the charging infrastructure in central Germany. Electric and hybrid vehicles of all brands are welcome”,

 Gerd Rupp, Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche Leipzig GmbH

The DC fast chargers, which use the CCS plug format, are capable of providing about 60 miles of range in as little as five minutes. This extreme charging speed will enable drivers to complete their journey with minimal downtime, and will also enable each charger to serve a large number of vehicles per day.
