Porsche Centre Doha Opens EV Charging Station at Park Hyatt Doha in Msheireb
Porsche Centre Doha has embarked on a partnership with the recently opened Park Hyatt Doha in Msheireb Downtown Doha, to provide a free charging station for Porsche customers and drivers of other electric and hybrid vehicles, in line with Qatar’s push for increased sustainability and to reduce CO2 emissions.
Msheireb Downtown Doha is a QAR20 billion sustainable regeneration project spread across 31 hectares in the heart of Doha. The hotel’s central location and proximity to popular attractions means Porsche customers can make use of another convenient charging point while being out.
With the new installation at the Park Hyatt Doha, Porsche Centre Doha is launching its sixth Porsche Destination Charger in the country, ahead of the 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’ piece of mind when choosing one of the plug-in hybrid or electric models.
Porsche Centre Doha Chairman and CEO Salman Jassem Al Darwish said that as Porsche Centre Doha continues to grow its E-Performance product portfolio, particularly with the launch of their first fully electric Taycan sports saloon by the end of the year, they are proud and honoured to be working with Park Hyatt Doha to play a role in the country’s focus on sustainability, in line with preparations to follow Porsche’s global strategy – whereby around 50% of all Porsche vehicles could be sold with an electric or hybrid drive by 2025.
With a range of up to 463 kilometres, the Taycan has little need for charging on the go. However, we want to give our customers the ultimate piece of mind by expanding our charging network in the country.
Choosing locations and partners for Porsche Destination Chargers is an intensive process and we are pleased that Park Hyatt Doha shares our vision for a sustainable future for generations to come.
According to Park Hyatt Doha General Manager Stefan Gaessler, their partnership with Porsche is a natural fit. Both are luxury brands with high focus on personalisation and a firm commitment to sustainability.
The location of the charging station in Msheireb Downtown Doha is significant given the precinct’s globally recognised LEED certification for sustainability, the highest accolade for sustainability in the world. We look forward to being part of this exciting initiative and to welcoming loyal Porsche owners over the coming weeks and months.
Msheireb Properties Acting CEO Ali Al Kuwari said that sustainability is central to Msheireb Downtown Doha in terms of conservation of natural resources and the quality of its design. Msheireb is one of the smartest and most sustainable city districts in the world, and he said that they are thrilled to promote sustainability in different aspects of life.
We welcome the current initiative of Porsche at Park Hyatt Doha and thank them for encouraging environmental practices that would leave positive impact on our lives.
The 11kW AC charger is located in the basement carpark of the Park Hyatt Doha with signage from the main entrance guiding drivers. It is available to use now and free for all owners of hybrid and electric vehicles.
Porsche Centre Doha will continue the expansion of its Porsche Destination Charger network. Current locations include Qatar National Bank as well as Porsche Centre Doha’s showroom and service centres.
