Electrification within the motor industry is becoming one of the most significant developments in recent years. The benefits inherent in the electric motor are profound, particularly in terms of emissions and environmental sustainability, but it has also created quandaries of its own. Our infrastructure has been developed to accommodate traditional combustion engines, and as such will require some modification to embrace fully electric cars.
The fact that there are still some unknowns surrounding the various forms of electric cars, such as hybrids and all-electrics, as well as different forms of charging systems, prompted Porsche Belfast to hold an information seminar about the subject. This gave prospective customers, for both existing Porsche E-Performance vehicles and the new all-electric Taycan, the opportunity to ask any questions they may have and to ensure that electrification is indeed fit for their needs.
After some light refreshments, guests were welcomed by Centre Principal Carl Russell, before a detailed presentation by representatives from Anderson, who have been selected by Porsche as a recognised partner for installation of the charging stations required for electric and hybrid vehicles. Three sessions were held in total, and were well received by attendees.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
