Iberdrola and Porsche have signed a collaboration agreement to promote the ultra-fast recharging of electric vehicles in Spain, whereby the energy company will install 35 ‘premium’ stations with the most powerful chargers on the market, 150 kilowatts (kW) and 350 kW, compatible with the Porsche Taycan model.

As reported this Friday by the company chaired by Ignacio Sánchez Galán, a total of 20 of these stations, which will be called ‘Porsche Iberdrola High Power Charging Network’, will be operational next year and the rest, in 2022. Each of them It will have between six and eight chargers, two of up to 350 kW of power and the rest of between 150 kW and 50 kW.

This will allow a Porsche Taycan to charge 80% of its battery capacity in just over 20 minutes or acquire enough extra power in five minutes to travel another 100 kilometers.

Porsche customers will be able to recharge their electric vehicles at these stations with 100% green energy, from clean generation sources. This alliance will allow the customers of the German firm to enjoy six months of free recharging, not only at the new ‘premium’ stations, but also at the network of charging points on public roads that Iberdrola has in Spain.

The electric recharging points of the Porsche Iberdrola stations will be available in the mobile application ‘Recarga Pública Iberdrola’, an ‘app’ that incorporates verified information of all the electric vehicle chargers operating in Spain, both from Iberdrola and from the rest of the operators. From this application the charger is geolocated and you can reserve and pay from your mobile.

The energy company has highlighted that, with the agreement with the sports car manufacturer, it is advancing in its “ambitious” sustainable mobility plan that, with an investment of 150 million euros, provides for the installation of 150,000 electric chargers in homes, companies and in the public highway in the next five years.

“The agreement shows the ambition of our transport electrification strategy and confirms the need to continue collaborating with all the agents in the sector to respond to the challenges of mobility based on clean energy and without CO2 emissions”, stressed the global director of Smart Mobility of Iberdrola, Raquel Blanco.

For his part, the general director of Porsche Ibérica, Tomás Villén, has assured that the company has once again demonstrated its commitment to electric mobility with this agreement. “We want to lead this transition process, contributing directly to the development of infrastructures”, he stressed.
