Hi folks - My Taycan order will soon get into production. One option that has puzzled me is the 150kW 400V DC charger. Question is if I should get that option? I am in the US and the post below suggests I may not need that option. The dealer "experts" also suggest I won't need it. I am new to the EV market, so any guidance will be greatly appreciated!

currently the option is superfluous because there are no chargers in the US that support that level of charging, however if you care to future proof the car it isn't expensive.

I really don't think that option is necessary.

This was my thinking, so I did order it. I have read that it is more common in Canada and that a Canadian energy company expanding into OK has installed a few there.

If it's $300 option you should get it. If it's a $3,000 option, maybe not.

Best to future proof the car if you intend to keep it for any decent period of time.
