Porsche Will Set Up 500 Fast Charging Stations In The US

Porsche plans 500 fast-charging stations across US

The chargers will be located at Porsche dealerships and highway locations across the United States.

Porsche's entry into the pure electric market is one that won't soon be forgotten.

Porsche is right and is following Tesla's proven example. This is enough for an 80% charge in just 20 minutes, or roughly three times faster than Tesla's current superchargers.

But that's not stopping Porsche opening reservations for their new auto and, just as Jaguar did with the I-Pace and Audi has done with the e-tron, they're opening up for business in Norway - Europe's EV capital. They are also planning a second model, based on the Mission E Cross Turismo concept, by 2020.

It's no coincidence that Porsche is setting up its fast charging network in the country in the not too distant future. After all, it's not like Porsche already built a huge network with fancy restaurants.

"If you want to buy that auto, you want to know what happens if I go skiing and go further than 300 miles", Zellmer told Automotive News.

Zellmer also reportedly called the 300-mile range of the Mission E a "psychological barrier" for the electric auto, noting that most electric vehicle owners will be putting their auto on the plug while parked at home or at the office. "So we need to have answers for that". This is all in an effort to combat "range anxiety" among electric vehicle owners when going on long distance trips.
