Porsche is launching electric car charging mobile app and service for its customers
In a recent announcement, German automaker Porsche has revealed that an electric car charging mobile app and service -- called the ‘Porsche Charging Service’ -- is being launched by the company for the convenience of its customers.
The announcement of the launch of the ‘Porsche Charging Service’ has been made by Porsche ahead of the launch of the production version of its first all-electric vehicle Mission E, which is now been named as the Taycan.
In announcing the ‘Porsche Charging Service,’ the automaker said that the key objective behind the move is to make electric-vehicle charging easy for customers. The service will mainly help Porsche customers in “searching for suitable charging stations,” as well as in using centrally stored data for handling the payment process, in different currencies and across several countries.
About the ‘Porsche Charging Service,’ Detlev von Platen -- a Porsche AG Executive Board member responsible for Sales and Marketing -- said that the service will basically give Porsche customers “a central digital platform that simplifies every aspect of the charging process.”
With the ‘Porsche Charging Service’ presently available in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Belgium, Finland, and the Netherlands, Porsche has announced that the service will gradually be expanded to other countries from the end of this year.
