There is a lot of misinformation here in Lowyat, FB, Twitter etc about charging an EV on a road trip.

For all the level headed people who wants a factual and real explanation about charging an EV this is it.

The video is a bit long but the explanation is on point.

With that in mind anyone can travel with an EV from JB to KL and even to Penang smoothly.

Porsche’s Electric Taycan Sales on Course to Eclipse Iconic 911
By Christoph Rauwald
16 April 2021, 7:35 pm MYT
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/202...ipse-iconic-911


Porsche buyers are flocking in droves to the brand’s Taycan sedan, with sales of the all-electric model almost matching those of the iconic 911 sports car.

Porsche delivered 9,072 Taycans during the first quarter, trailing the 911 by 61 units, the brand owned by Volkswagen AG said Friday in a statement. The manufacturer unveiled its first purely battery-powered model that’s competing for customers with Tesla Inc.’s Model S in 2019.

“Established models have supported this excellent result along with the latest additions to our product range, above all the new model variants of the all-electric Taycan,” Porsche sales chief Detlev von Platen said of the brand’s 36% first-quarter surge. “We can look back on a very positive start to the year.”

The Taycan, which Porsche recently flanked with a more spacious version, is a litmus test for the carmaker’s costly shift to electric vehicles. Boosting EV sales with Porsche will be key to maintaining healthy margins as the division is VW group’s biggest profit contributor by far.

Porsche’s total global deliveries rose to 71,986 vehicles in the first quarter, driven mainly by demand in China, its largest market. The compact Macan SUV was the brand’s best-selling model, ahead of the larger Cayenne. Porsche will launch a battery-powered version of the Macan next year that’s underpinned by a new platform for upscale electric cars co-developed with sister brand Audi.

Porsche remains optimistic about business prospects this year even as a global shortage of semiconductor parts disrupts production plans across the industry. Order books “continue to develop very well,” Von Platen said.

Curious, what is this cost relative to? Estimated TNB consumption? Or is this at one of the Charging Stations, and that is the amount to pay after charging?

This is the Porsche Mobile Charger Connect which is installed at the owner's house. This mobile charger can be used at the specified type of electrical outlet. Attached File  Porsche_Mobile_Charger_Connect___Operating_Manual_.pdf ( 5.87mb ) Number of downloads: 4


The owner I think has set the price at around 57.3 sen/kWh

if you divide RM49.63 with 86.6 you would get 57.3 sen/kWh

TNB tariff for domestic consumer starts at 21.8 sen/kWh to 57.1 sen/kWh

The actual TNB bill would depend on the owner's monthly home electricity consumption.

VW Group indicated that the 4 main value drivers are
1. BEV platform
2. Software
3. Battery/Energy/Charging
4. Mobility Platform

I see this as the 4 main core competency for the automotive sector as they move towards EV.

Case in point for software, Porsche Taycan owners have noted several improvements after the latest software update to name a few

1. Energy consumption improved from 27kw/100km to 23kw/100km
2. Better 360 camera images
3. Apple car play more stable
4. Better electronic suspension feel
5. Smoother throttle response

This shows the EV platform actually can be easily improved even after the car has been delivered to the customer.

This AP holder is pretty confidant to bring in this Taycan from UK.
Demand for this car must be healthy.

A well made electric car must be able to manage its battery in extreme temperature.
