Porsche And Shell To Partner On Fast Charging In Southeast Asia

Ultra-fast chargers coming to Malaysia’s North-South highway.

Porsche Asia Pacific and Shell announced a partnership to build Southeast Asia’s first cross-border high performance charging network.

The plan is to deploy about 12 charging stations, strategically located along Malaysia’s North-South highway, to allow long-distance travel between Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Penang.

The plan includes the installation of six charging stations at Shell fuel stations in Malaysia and three in Singapore, plus four at Porsche Centers in Malaysia.

The chargers at Shell will be rated at up to 180 kW with two CCS Combo 2 plugs each so they can charge a single car at up to 180 kW or two simultaneously at up to 90 kW each. Porsche will complement the network with 175 kW chargers at its sites.

The first four chargers in Malaysia will be ready in the second half of 2021 and two additional stations by the first half of 2022.
