ABB and Porsche to partner on EV infrastructureABB has entered into an agreement to deliver its electric-vehicle infrastructure for Porsche Japan’s EVs, including the Taycan (the company’s first fully electric car), which is scheduled to enter the Japanese market in 2020.

Under the agreement, Porsche Japan will install ABB’s high-power chargers at Porsche Centres and public facilities across the country, creating a network of fast chargers for its electric vehicles.

The first installation is set to go live in mid-2020.

This alliance will boost Japan’s push for the wider adoption of e-mobility; it will see the development of chargers that support power levels exceeding 150kW and are compatible with the CHAdeMO fast-charging standard.

The Japanese government has set the goal of only new electric or hybrid vehicles being sold by 2050.

Frank Muehlon, head of ABB’s global business for EV charging infrastructure, said: “ABB’s expertise in electric-vehicle charging — combined with Porsche’s legacy of high performance — is a winning formula to revolutionise sustainable mobility and will pave the way for Japan to meet its ambitious zero-emissions commitments.”

The Porsche Taycan has a maximum output of 440kW, can go from 0 to 100kph in 3.5sec and has a maximum cruising distance of 500km.

The demand for Porsche’s first-ever electric car has been “overwhelming”, with more than 20,000 customers across the world expressing interest as of March 2019.

Porsche Japan president Toshiyuki Shimegi said: “I am very glad to say that we will be able to give the highest-performing quick-charging network in the world, thanks to this partnership with ABB.

“By 2025, half of the new vehicles from Porsche will feature an electric drive — either as part of a hybrid concept or as a purely electric vehicle — so building the quick-charging infrastructure is vital to EV owners.”

Be seen in all the right places!
