Porsche Centre Preston is first to install ultra-fast EV chargers

Porsche Centre Preston EV charger

Bowker Motor Group’s Preston Porsche Centre has become the first Porsche Centre in the UK to install new ultra-high-speed electric vehicle (EV) charging points.

The Lancashire dealership has installed two Porsche CBX 150kW Turbo Chargers, which can deliver 62 miles of range to a Porsche Taycan in five minutes.

Such is the high power charging available, the chargers have to be liquid cooled from a main control unit.

Tom Fox, centre principal, said: “We are proud that Preston was chosen as the first Porsche Turbo Charger installation in the UK. Our new ultra high speed charging points offer a glimpse into the future of electric motoring here in the North West. 

“This is the very latest technology meaning cars can be charged much quicker than before. And a fully-charged battery on the new Taycan, for example, is capable of a range of 225 miles.”

This installation at Porsche Centre Preston is part of continued investment in charging infrastructure throughout the region. Last year, Moor Hall Restaurant with Rooms in Aughton, West Lancashire officially unveiled Lancashire’s first Porsche Destination electric charging point. 

The new installation at Moor Hall is part of the new commercial partnership between the two-star Michelin Restaurant and Porsche Centre Preston.

Bowker Motor Group hosted more than 500 guests at a VIP opening event for Porsche Centre Preston in 2019.
