Porsche expands a list of premium travel locations that feature US chargers for Porsche Taycan. The landmark hotel InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco now boasts Porsche electric vehicle chargers to top off the batteries of electric vehicles while their drivers relax inside.
This network, called Porsche Destination Charging, complements the faster DC chargers at Electrify America stations from coast to coast. Electrify America currently has more than 650 charging stations and 2,700 individual chargers nationally and there are plans to increase this number to more than 1,700 total charging stations with over 9,500 chargers by the end of 2025. Taycan owners receive three years of no-fee fast charging at Electrify America locations.
The InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco has added two Porsche Wall Chargers. Both Porsche Wall Chargers are located in the valet area of the hotel’s parking deck. Free of charge, the service is not restricted to Porsche models, but can be used with any electric vehicle that accepts a standard J1772 plug.
We want to welcome the growing ranks of Taycan fans with charging opportunities where they already travel and play, including superb hotel destinations like the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins. The Taycan has been wildly successful as the first all-electric Porsche. We are committed to the electric future of our sports cars and part of that is investing alongside others in charging infrastructure. – Kjell Gruner, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America, Inc.
Porsche Destination Charging in the U.S. currently includes more than a dozen locations around the country and is planned to grow to 25 or more by the end of this year. The Porsche-branded AC chargers are installed at Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi in New Mexico and Naples Bay Resort in Florida as well as race tracks including Lime Rock Park in Connecticut. The locations are listed in the Porsche Charging NA app for real-time navigation.
