For most people, the most convenient and regular charging will take place at home.
Where home charging is not possible, or for charging on longer journeys, an ever-growing network of public chargers make charging on the road easily accessible. AC public charging sockets are widespread and can be easily used with the optional
Charging at public AC charge points can be done using the optional
Both chargers will charge your plug-in or electric vehicle, both come with appropriate connection cables and a basic wall mount.
Extensive accessories are available exclusively for the
The charging duration depends on the charging current available at the charging point, the specification of your vehicle and on-board charging equipment, as well as on ambient and battery temperature conditions.
e.g. at home, on a 16A single-phase 240V domestic connection, the maximum power available for charging is 3.6kW, even if the vehicle and charging equipment can support a maximum of 11kW.
e.g. on the road, during rapid charging (e.g. 150-270kW), maximum charge rates are achieved between 5-80% state of charge under optimum environmental conditions. The charge rate above for 80% would be reduced to maximise battery life.
Public charging points can be accessed in a variety of ways. Individual charge points are often operated by different networks which will have their individual means of access (e.g. app/subscription) or ad-hoc (e.g. one-time payment via app, or a credit card reader).
To simplify access to the range of different networks, the
Charging at public AC charge point sockets generally requires an appropriate charging cable. For the UK, the Type 2
Rapid charge points generally feature tethered cables. The
No. When connected, the vehicle and charger conduct a digital handshake verification which includes locking of the cable to the vehicle (and to the charger where appropriate). While the vehicle is charging or locked, the cable cannot be removed from the vehicle socket.
No. You do not always have to fully charge the high-voltage battery of your
The range is influenced by various factors such as vehicle loading, driving style, temperature, road conditions and topography. An environmentally aware and predictive driving style promotes the recuperation of braking energy and therefore increases the range. Due to aerodynamic resistance, high speeds will negatively impact range, as will additionally fitted accessories such as roof boxes. Vehicle loading and high intensity acceleration will increase the energy consumption and reduce range. Extreme temperatures, particularly low temperatures increase the energy required to heat the battery and occupants, and so will reduce the range. The reduction can be minimised by preconditioning the vehicle while plugged in before the journey, and by reducing the intensity of interior climate control functions.
Different countries may have different standards and access requirements in particular for public charging. Prior to travel, familiarise yourself with the necessary requirements of the countries you intend to travel to, as well as any additional equipment which may be required.
In Europe, the Type 2 (AC) and CCS (DC) standards are widely adopted, and a large network of chargers can be accessed using the

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
