Porsche Unveils New Fast-Charging EV Stations

By Kristin Hunt

Jaguar isn’t the only luxury car brand muscling in on the electric vehicle market. Last week, Porsche debuted its new “electric pit stop” — a modular, fast-charging EV station that can load up a car’s battery in 20 minutes, and charge multiple electric cars at the same time.

According to a press release, the company’s new charging stations are cheaper and more flexible than a typical EV charger. That’s because Porsche has busted all of the parts that are usually stuffed into charging “cabinet” and scattered them into modular pieces called FlexBoxes. The FlexBoxes measure roughly 47 by 47 by 51 inches, making them easy to move or hide for customers who would rather keep the equipment out of view.

The streamlined design apparently keeps the cost down, since it increases the system’s efficiency to over 95 percent. This in turn decreases the overall operational fees.
