Charge your Taycan for free via Porsche Center PH's ultra-fast DC charger

Porsche DC Charger for the Taycan

Porsche Philippines announced that its first ultra-fast DC charger is now in the country and is ready to serve Taycan  owners.

In a statement, the company said the high-powered DC charger for electric vehicles has been installed at the Porsche Center Philippines in EDSA Greenhills. The charger has the capability to fully charge the Taycan in less than 30 minutes.

“With the Porsche Taycan, we are proving that electromobility is sustainable in the Philippines. We are taking the lead in this area to open possibilities for future partners and stakeholders so the technology can be adopted more widely by progressive consumers. Fully electric cars are not mere concept vehicles as proven by not a few of our forward-thinking customers who regularly drive their Taycan on the country’s roads,” Porsche Philippines President and Chief Executive Officer Roberto Coyiuto III said.

According to Porsche Philippines, Taycan owners who bought their cars from Porsche Center Philippines are exclusively allowed to use the charger for free. “After booking an appointment, they can simply drive through the facility to charge their car. Taycan specialists at Porsche Center Philippines are always on hand to assist customers,” the company explained.

The local distributor added that the new high-powered DC charger “presents Taycan owners an added option for their charging requirements by complementing the Porsche Mobile Charger Connect that comes as standard equipment in every Taycan.”

“In contrast to the new DC charger, the Porsche Mobile Charger Connect uses alternating current (AC), and functions as a simple and convenient home-charging solution that allows Taycan owners to charge their car overnight,” the company added.

Further, Porsche Philippines revealed that there is an ongoing installation of advanced charging facilities in key local destinations. This is in accordance with its continuous efforts “at building the necessary ecosystem supporting the Taycan’s operation in the country.”

More than P150 million has been invested by Porsche Philippines into charging solutions — acquiring original Porsche and other manufacturer-approved equipment, tools and software specific for servicing electric vehicles, stocking an inventory of genuine Taycan parts and the construction of other infrastructure.

“Besides these outlays, Porsche Philippines has also invested in training our personnel, which was conducted by Porsche AG, so they are properly equipped to service electric vehicles like the Taycan. They are certified as Gold-level technicians, the highest awarded by the factory,” Coyiuto added.

Meanwhile, Porsche is eyeing to double overall sales for the Taycan around the world this year after vehicle turnovers in the first six months of 2021 nearly equaled the full-year total in 2020 (19,822 Taycan models were already sold from January to June this year while 20,015 units were rolled out to customers for the full 12 months of 2020).

“Our electric strategy is working,” Porsche AG Chairman of the Executive Board Oliver Blume said, noting that half of all Porsche models sold in 2025 will have an electric motor and that more than 80 percent of these will be fully electric by 2030.

“We have a marathon called transformation ahead of us. We have taken our first big step with the Taycan, and more will follow in the years to come,” he added.

Last March, PGA Cars announced the 2021 Porsche Taycan's availability in the Philippine market.
