In our opinion, an innovative car concept is of no value if it ends with the car. E-Performance therefore includes the infrastructure: an optimally integrated vehicle charge port, practical charging equipment and intelligent charging options, to use at home and on the road.
The vehicle charge port connects the car to the electricity infrastructure.
Once plugged in, the vehicle plug is automatically identified by the car and locked. The car is now secured, even against driving off. The charging process starts immediately. If you use the charging timer to enter a time by when the battery should be charged, the charging process will start later. So that you can take advantage of cheaper nighttime tariffs, for example.
Two LEDs show the mains connection status and the battery’s charge level. When you open the car with the key, the charging process is stopped and the vehicle plug is released.
When you buy an E-Hybrid you automatically receive the charging accessories that have been developed by Porsche itself. You can then charge your car at home and on the road quite safely, quickly and conveniently.
The Porsche Universal Charger (AC) establishes a safe connection between different sockets and your car. Charging normally starts automatically when it is plugged in. However, if there is a problem – due to a defective socket for example –, clear instructions will appear on the display.
The charging dock has been specially created by Porsche Design. The practical wall mount for the Porsche Universal Charger (AC) is like a private filling station – for your Porsche. The Porsche Universal Charger (AC) can be easily stowed in the transport case for use on the road. If you want to charge your car abroad, you can opt for an appropriate adapter cable – for all common sockets throughout the world.
