Several months ago Porsche said that as many as 120 of its 191 US dealers have agreed to add DC Fast Charging stations. Now the German automaker has confirmed all 191 US dealerships will offer the award-winning technology.
The news comes via a report in Automotive News.
In addition, all 191 U.S. Porsche dealerships will invest approximately $70 million to install DC fast chargers," said Porsche Cars North America marketing chief Pedro Mota. "Beyond that, we anticipate most customers will charge at home or at work, so we will also offer a Porsche-designed home charging system."
DC Fast Charging of 350kW is the fastest recharging available and will allow Taycan owners to recharge up to 60 miles of range in just 4 minutes!
The rest of the article focuses on Porsche's battle to sell electric cars to gasoline-loyalists.
Mota, however, insists it's not an issue and he's got facts to rely on, like the fact that Taycan pre-orders have been so strong.
"In the U.S., we have more people registering their interest in the Taycan than in any other pre-release program we have had," he said.
Combating the issue of electric cars being fun to drive he said "Whether they choose a new-generation 911 or the refreshed Macan, they want to feel engaged behind the wheel and have fun. The Taycan will be no different. It will have the Porsche soul, but electrified. The car will be exciting to drive, with a low center of gravity, and it will corner, steer and brake like a true sports car."
