Porsche Opens Europe's Most Powerful Fast-Charging Park
Twelve 350 kW CCS DC fast chargers for all and an additional six for internal use.
This week Porsche opened a new fast-charging park in Leipzig, Germany, called “Europe’s most powerful” one.
According to the German manufacturer, the total capacity of the facility is 7 MW.
“This means that Porsche Leipzig currently has Europe’s most powerful rapid-charging park, which is operated entirely with electricity from renewable energy sources.”
There are currently six internal fast chargers (350 kW each we guess), as well as 12 publicly available DC chargers (350 kW each) and four 22 kW AC stands, available at the customer center – “running seven days a week, around the clock and for customers of all vehicle brands”.

Through the end of March 2020, the charging site will be available free of charge to all users (non-Porsche EVs, too). Then: “payment will be made using the mobility providers’ standard charging cards, according to their respective conditions”.
Gerd Rupp, Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche Leipzig GmbH said:
“The new charging park between the number 9, 14 and 38 motorways will significantly enrich the charging infrastructure in central Germany. Electric and hybrid vehicles of all brands are welcome. We are pleased that with the new charging park we can offer an attractive charging option for electric vehicle owners in Leipzig and the surrounding area, as well as transit passengers.”
