Porsche Thailand Launch Electric Charging Sites With Shell

Porsche Asia Pacific and Shell have announced the launch of the first High-Performance Charging (HPC) site in Bang Yai, Bangkok.

With the HPC site’s launch, the brands kick off a project to build eleven 180 kW and 360 kW direct current (DC) chargers at eleven Shell stations across Thailand to promote emission-free travel within the country.

The HPC network in Thailand will also connect to a broader regional Shell HPC network with six locations in Malaysia and three in Singapore once it goes live in the first quarter of next year. As a result, motorists would travel more than 2,200 kilometers in the three Southeast Asian nations without emissions.

With this joint initiative, Porsche Asia Pacific and Shell have created the longest emission-free driving route in the region, allowing EV owners to enjoy hassle-free long-distance travel with faster and more convenient charging experiences while reducing their environmental footprint.

Through the partnership, both brands hope to equip eleven Shell stations in Thailand with 180 kW and 360 kW DC chargers to offer the fastest charging capacity in the country.

If charged at speeds of 180 kW, a Porsche Taycan can go from a 0% state of charge (SoC) to 80% in just 30 minutes for up to 390 km (WLTP) of range.

With charging speeds of 270 kW, the maximum rate for a Taycan, the vehicle only needs just over 22 minutes to reach an 80% state of charge (SoC).

Porsche Asia Pacific and Shell’s partnership also brings special benefits for people who buy the Porsche Taycan, including a complimentary three-year Platinum membership.

With the Platinum Membership, new Taycan owners enjoy several benefits, such as a complimentary pre-reservation up to one hour before arriving at any Shell HPC site and a 50% discount on the Pay-Per-User (PPU) rate.

Those who purchase the Porsche Taycan and receive the complimentary membership can also earn 10,000 Shell GO+ points redeemable for discounts on Shell products and services.

In addition, the Sharge and ParkEasy apps in Malaysia and Thailand will be integrated to allow users access to the entire Shell HPC and Porsche Destination Charging sites network in both countries.

In Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, electric vehicle owners can use the Shell HPC network by simply paying a PPU fee or subscribing to a membership plan with preferential rates.
