While the style of earlier models of this electric vehicle was absolutely panned by the original Top Gear team, we think it's a good looker with plenty of grunt!
The Porsche is typically supplied with a fairly large and bulky custom/OE unit which features removable component which you can travel with if required. It's a relatively slow charger/EVSE, so any Porsche Panamera e-hybrid owner can benefit from an upgrade to one of our quality aftermarket units which can half the charging time.
Plug Standard: Type 1 / J1772 Or Type 2 Mennekes
The Porsche is one of those vehicles which has been supplied with both Type 1 and Type 2 connections, so best to check before ordering.
Maximum AC charge rate is 15 or 30 Amps (model dependent)
Average time to recharge a Porsche Panamera e-hybrid:
Dealer supplied charger is up to 5 hours
15amp charger is up to 2.5 hours
32amp charger is up to 2.5hours

Myenergi Zappi - our most popular EV charger, the Zappi takes your self-generated solar power and directs it to your EV, rather than the grid. Not only does this mean your EV is driving on free sunshine, but that you're not losing precious power to the grid for a small feed-in tariff.

How to charge your Porsche Panamera from a public J1772 Type 1 electric car charger
If your Porsche Panamera electric car has a type 1 or J1772 charge port then you're all set. Simply plug in your car and start charging up!
All Type 1 or J1772 chargers have a cable attached so there's no need to adapt or plug in any EV charger adaptors or electric car cables.
How to charge your Porsche Panamera from a public Type 2 Mennekes charging station
The Type 2 to type 1 cable will charge your Porsche Panamera up to 3.3kw or 20 km for every hour of charge, an essential cable for every Type 1 or J1772 vehicle to enable safe and secure charging from public ‘Universal’ charge points.
There is a trend for public electric car charge points to be universal or socketed; this means the point has no in-built cable. The result is reduced maintenance and damage, as well as reduced liability for the owner of the station. If there is no permanently cable attached to the charger then there is less risk of it being driven over or generally being abused. Think air hose in a servo. They are otherwise known as BYO cable chargers.
