Report on 800 Volt Fast Charging and Thermal Management

There is a need for a standardized charging connection and network. OEMs and regulators are working towards such harmonized standards, but a fully-compatible European-wide charging network is yet to be established.

When Porsche unveiled the Mission E concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year, it introduced the first 800 Volt charging concept, which has the potential to change the landscape of the electric vehicle market. However, with no 800 Volt charging stations or agreed standards at present, the concept also poses a variety of questions and challenges.
