Porsche drivers opting for the Mission E once it hits the road by 2019 will not have to compromise as Porsche is taking their mission rather serious. VW’s sports brand today opened the first public charging site featuring its liquid-cooled 800 Volt technology and we were at the launch.

Porsche Germany’s CEO Jens Puttfarcken’s vision is clear: “Once the E hits the market in 2019, buyers shall have peace of mind to travel around Germany in the first series electric car with 800-volt technology.” And preparations have started now at a brand-new branch in Berlin-Adlershof that includes the first public fast-charging park with the 800-volt technology developed by Porsche Engineering. The first two such charging stations with 350 kW capacity just opened in the south of the German capital. They cover 180 to 950 volts and also offer lower charging capacities such as 50, 80 or 150 kW all via the Combined Charging System (CCS).

The Berlin charge park is ready to accommodate another two high-voltage charge points, while two AC stations for Volkswagen’s plug-in hybrid models complement the site. All eyes will be on Porsche’s high power chargers however, and their futuristic design drawn up by Porsche Engineering was called “close to serial” by experts on site. Michael Kiefer, who heads the High-Voltage Systems at the Porsche subsidiary, clarified that the optics are in fact final because the system is already undergoing certification.
