Porsche Centre Doha Instals EV Charging at Ooredoo Headquarters in West Bay
Porsche Centre Doha, Al Boraq Automobiles Co WLL continues to roll out electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, this time in partnership with leading international communications company Ooredoo, in keeping with Qatar’s mandate to reduce CO2 emissions and push for sustainability.
Two 11 kW AC chargers have been installed at the Ooredoo main office – the HQ1 Tower in West Bay with three more additional locations set to follow at their branches in Wadi al Sail, Al Waab and Abu Hamour.
According to Porsche Centre Doha Chairman and CEO Salman Jassem Al Darwish, the strategic partnership with Ooredoo is in line with Porsche’s commitment to the future of electromobility and CO2 reduction.
With the new, all-electric Taycan 4S, Turbo and Turbo S models that are now available to order, Porsche is heavily investing in its E-Performance portfolio and an integral part of that is ensuring our Destination Chargers are accessible to not only owners of Porsche electric and hybrid vehicles, but also to visitors and employees of Ooredoo.
When equipped with the optional Performance Battery Plus with a capacity of 93.4 kWh, the Taycan 4S offers a range of up to 463 km and delivers 571 PS of power. The flagship Turbo S matches the 911 GT2 RS in acceleration to 100 km/h, taking just 2.8 seconds from its 761 PS. All models can be charged on either side using alternating current (AC) or by using direct current (DC) on the right side.
An official inauguration of the charger took place recently at the Ooredoo HQ1 Tower. The partnership includes the opportunity for customers and potential EV owners to take a Taycan for a test drive and inspect the new charging facility located in the upgraded parking area of the company headquarters.
Ooredoo CEO Yousuf Abdulla Al Kubaisi said the collaboration with Porsche Centre Doha is in line with the company’s corporate social responsibility strategy and commitment to the UN Sustainability Goals.
Given (that) this commitment to sustainability is at the core of our operations, it makes sense for us to give our colleagues every opportunity to share this obligation. Helping them travel to and from their workplace via sustainable transport demonstrates our pledge, while being able to offer our customers this charging facility when they visit our premises also adds value.
The new installation at the Ooredoo HQ1 Tower is the seventh location for Porsche Destination Chargers in the country, ahead of Porsche’s soon-to-be-launched first fully electric product offering, the Porsche Taycan. The latest introduction is part of a wider plan to provide conveniently located charging points for customers’ peace of mind when choosing one of the plug-in hybrid or electric models.
