Comments Off on Porsche’s new EV chargers top up Mission E batteries by 80% in 15 minutes

We’re still about two years away from the arrival of the Porsche Mission E electric car, but Porsche has already started installing the 800-volt chargers that will power it. The automaker recently installed two 800-volt chargers in Berlin that have the ability to recharge an EV’s batteries up to 80 percent in a mere 15 minutes. The 350kW chargers are twice as powerful as the 145kW chargers that Tesla’s Supercharger network uses. Although Porsche’s new charging stations, Tesla refuses to be out done, since Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk recently stated that its future charging network will make the 350kW charger look like a “children’s toy.” Related: Porsche is moving ahead with their Tesla rival ‘Mission E’ electric car Since the Mission E is still at least two years away, the good news is that the Porsche’s new chargers do have the ability to charge lower-powered EVs. While we wait for the Mission E, Porsche does offer plug-in hybrid versions of the Porsche Cayenne and Panamera. Porsche is also installing similar chargers in Atlanta. Porsche has yet to reveal the production version of the Mission E , but when it arrives it will be one of the most significant Model S rivals. The Mission E will feature two electric motors that generate around 600 horsepower and a driving range over 300 miles. + Porsche Via Trusted Reviews Images @Porsche
