Faster Charging Than Tesla's Supercharger? Porsche Promises It For the Taycan

That suggests there'll be a reasonable number of places for Taycan owners to charge up when the vehicle arrives in late 2019.

With a 350 kW, and the 800 volt technology that Porsche has used on the Taycan, drivers will be able to add more than 60 miles of range every four minutes. Porsche is kicking off a huge dealer charger upgrade, with all 191 locations across the United States also adding DC fast charging support. Porsche is reportedly planning to double production to meet demand.

Electrify America is, after all, owned by Volkswagen Group.

Porsche will give Taycan buyers three years of free 30-minute charging sessions at all Electrify America charging stations in the country. The network now has 300 stations in 42 states, and will gain more as the commercial debut of the Taycan approaches. Porsche would also be releasing products for home charging solutions. Due on sale a year.

To take advantage of the Taycan's ultra-fast-charging capabilities, Electrify America's highway stations would have a minimum of two 350 kW chargers per site, with additional stalls delivering up to 150 kW. The highway stations will be no more than 120 miles from each other, with a nationwide average of just 70 miles between sites. Metro stations, meanwhile, will have up to 150 kW chargers.

At least 484 charging locations will be installed or under construction by July 1, in time for the Taycan's arrival. It will deliver considerably more powerful charging stations than Tesla Superchargers now offer.

Gemma Collins speaks out after dramatic Dancing on Ice fall
One snap showed Arg helping her to the auto as she hobbled on one leg, while later, she opted for a wheelchair instead. Jayne went on to claim that Gemma "hadn't put in the hours" ahead of her performance last Sunday.

And of course, all 191 Porsche dealerships in the country will offer DC fast charging stations, majority offering the Porsche Turbo Charging speeds.

The Porsche Experience Center (PEC) in Atlanta, GA already hosts the company's first Turbo Chargers.

We've crossed a threshold. Electric vehicles, plug-ins, hybrids ... they're now regular cars. They're quick -- most of the time quicker than an equivalent gas-powered auto. The automaker has noted that all 191 of its USA dealers would be installing DC fast-charging stations for the upcoming vehicle, 120 of which would feature Porsche Turbo Charging - the company's proprietary DC/CCS charging system that delivers up to 320 kW.

Head of Porsche Cars North America, Klaus Zellmer, brings the point home.

Porsche's charging infrastructure in North America wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the Dieselgate Scandal.
