Porsche advances in the electric Macan and strengthens its commitment to infrastructure: “We cannot deliver a car without knowing where customers are going to charge”

More than 20,000 Taycan model electric cars were sold during 2020 by the manufacturer Porsche, a fact that opened the way for the German brand to raise its commitment to a more sustainable mobility throughout its structure.

Porsche is known as one of the companies in the automotive sector that over the last few years has conveyed to its customers that the future must be directed for the benefit of the planet, a vision that was exposed by Christoph Klein (Sales & Network Development Director of Porsche Latin America) at the Latam Mobility Virtual Summit 2021, a leading meet promoting sustainable mobility.

Emphasizing the importance of the massive implementation of the charging infrastructure, Klein said: “At least 80% of the charge will be at home, just like a cell phone or iPad is connected when you arrive at night at home. It is something that should not be done frequently because not everyone travels thousands of kilometers; therefore it is not necessary to connect them every day.”

In the same way, Cristoph proactively invited all interested clients, companies or individuals to apply to be a cargo provider from their clubs, hotels and even restaurants. “We have a goal of installing 300 charging points in the region by 2021,” he said.

In the electric car we have decided to take part of the responsibilities at the charging points, we cannot deliver a car without knowing where the customers are going to charge. We as manufacturers must make alliances and provide everything that we lack, bring together those companies that are excellent in their field to promote electromobility,”

Regarding the upcoming releases within its range of electric cars, Klein announced that a new generation of the “Macan” will soon be launched to the market, the second best-selling car in the region by the German company.

“Making a bit of a difference from the Taycan, the Macan is an everyday car in which you can mobilize the family. The car will be produced in Leipzig and is in the manufacturing process, this will come in the next few years,”assured Cristoph.

Finally, Cristoph Klein was very confident when mentioning the direction the company will take: “We know where we come from and where we are going, we want more companies to continue joining the electrification market, that is what we want to promote.”
