Shell High Performance Chargers collaboration will form the longest emission-free driving route in South East Asia
Shell High Performance Chargers will soon connect a distance of over 2200km from Singapore to Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.
The joint initiative between Porsche APAC and Shell kicked off with the launch of the first Shell High Performance Charging site in Bang Yai, Bangkok. This is the start of the construction of 11 180kW and 360kW direct-current (DC) chargers at 11 Shell stations located throughout Thailand.
Once the Thai network is operational in the first half of 2023, the HPC network will form part of a wider regional Shell HPC network of six locations in Malaysia and three in Singapore. The distance of more than 2200km on all three countries will cover more than 800,000 of land mass and form the longest emission-free driving route in South East Asia.
In addition to making emission-free travel possible along a 2,200-kilometre corridor across Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, this partnership also accords special benefits to new Porsche Taycan owners.
New Taycan owners in Thailand receive complimentary Platinum membership for three years. During this time, they enjoy a host of benefits, including:
- 50% off the Pay-Per-Use (PPU) rate
- complimentary pre-reservation up to one hour before arriving at any Shell HPC site,
- 10,000 Shell GO+ points for redeeming discounts on Shell products and services
In Thailand and Malaysia, the Sharge and ParkEasy apps will be integrated. This will enable users to have access to the entire network of Shell HPC and Porsche Destination Charging sites in both countries.
The use of the Shell HPC network is open to all electric vehicles. Owners in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand will also be able to use the Network via a PPU rate. Alternatively, they may subscribe to a membership plan with preferential rates.
