· As a result of the agreement, drivers will be able to charge at Enel X Way’s 15,000 charging points in Italy using the Porsche Charging Service
Roma/Padua, March 31st, 2022 - Porsche drivers will find it even easier to charge their Taycan on the road. As a result of the partnership signed with Enel X Way, Enel’s new global business line dedicated to electric mobility, customers of the Stuttgart-based company will be able to charge their electric models at the 15,000 Enel X Way charging points spread throughout Italy, using the Porsche Charging Service. Customers will have the full range of Enel X Way charging solutions at their disposal: quick chargers of 22 kW, fast chargers of up to 100 kW and HPC (High Power Charging) chargers of up to 300 kW, which allow, for example, a Porsche Taycan to be charged from 5% to 80% in around 20 minutes.
“The partnership with Porsche is another demonstration of how committed car manufacturers are to the rapid growth of electric mobility, which necessarily also passes through agreements between the most important players in the transition,” commented Elisabetta Ripa, CEO of Enel X Way. “Enel X Way, the new Enel business line, will offer Porsche drivers access to an even greater number of charging infrastructure elements throughout the country, including the network of ultrafast chargers, the fastest and most technologically advanced on the market, which we are expanding thanks to the synergy created with the Volkswagen Group.”
“The construction of a customer-friendly charging infrastructure is key to long-term success for electric mobility,” commented Pietro Innocenti, Managing Director of Porsche Italia. “The collaboration with Enel X Way was the missing link in our national plan to develop electric mobility for the Porsche brand.”
Under the agreement, all the functions, including searching for Enel X Way stations, booking and starting charging operations, will be integrated into the new My Porsche app (available for iOS or Android). All Enel X Way charging stations supply energy from 100% renewable sources. The Plug & Charge function, available on all Porsche Taycan vehicles, also enables convenient charging and payments without the need for cards or apps. By inserting the charging cable, the Taycan establishes an encrypted communication with the Plug & Charge compatible charging station and automatically starts charging.
