Porsche, Q8 & Enel X to Expand Charging Network in Italy
Porsche Italia, Q8 and Enel X plan to install ultrafast charging stations at 20 Q8 service areas by the end of 2021. Thanks to their 300 kW capacity, the High Power Charging stations operated by Enel X allow drivers to recharge two electric vehicles at the same time in just a few minutes. Once active, the project’s ultrafast stations will be integrated into the Porsche mobility ecosystem and be visible on the Enel X JuicePass app, adding to the company’s more than 12,000 charging points throughout Italy. The agreement also provides for one of the chargers and the associated parking area of each active station to be reserved for Porsche customers only, who will then be able to recharge their Taycan and the future electric cars of the Stuttgart company even more easily and rapidly. At the charging points inside the Q8 filling stations, the Taycan, with its 800 volt architecture, will be able to recharge to 80% in about 20 minutes.
The first ultrafast charging station will be inaugurated at the Q8 service area of Paderno Dugnano in province of Milan, followed by other service stations at other key junctions of daily traffic and seasonal tourism, including Carate Brianza in province of Monza Brianza, Erbusco in province of Brescia, Padua, Perugia, Rome, Naples, Polignano a Mare in province of Bari, Brindisi, and Porto Rotondo in province of Oristano.
