Porsche and Shell to offer high performance charging network in Southeast Asia
Porsche Asia Pacific and Shell will implement Southeast Asia’s first cross-border high performance charging network on Malaysia’s North-South highway
Porsche Asia Pacific and Shell have teamed up to implement Southeast Asia’s first cross-border high performance charging network. Twelve charging points at six Shell stations strategically located along Malaysia’s North-South highway will offer electric vehicle drivers the possibility of convenient travel between Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
“The ASEAN markets hold strong potential for Porsche to unlock and we see an opportunity to shape electric mobility in the region. Our high-performance charging network across Singapore and Malaysia will serve as a lighthouse project for other countries to follow,” says Matthias Becker, Vice President Region Overseas and Emerging Markets at Porsche.
“While the question of future electric mobility is a global one, Southeast Asia amply demonstrates the complexity and diversity of both the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. As more customers adopt EVs and governments look to meet their climate goals, the partnership between Porsche and Shell is one of many examples on how industry players must come together to play a vital role to help the transportation sector decarbonise and pave way for cleaner mobility solutions for customers,” says Amr Adel, Senior Vice President, Mobility East, Shell.
The six Shell stations will be equipped with 180 kW direct-current (DC) chargers, offering the highest charging capacity across Singapore and Malaysia. The chargers come with two CCS Type 2 charging connectors, allowing a single vehicle to be charged at up to 180 kW, or two vehicles to charge simultaneously at up to 90 kW each. The offering will be rolled out in stages with four stations ready in the second half of 2021 and two more going online in the first half of 2022.
Porsche has already established 175 kW high performance chargers at its Malaysian Centres, as well as growing the Porsche Destination Charging network at certain hotels, airports and sports clubs.
