Porsche Brunei hosted an exclusive event at the country’s first-ever Porsche Destination Charging site for its Taycan owners, in conjunction of World EV Day on 9 September, 2022.
Ten all-electric Taycan owners participated in the occasion, held at the After Chukkas Asador Restaurante, an Argentinian restaurant in the heart of Jerudong, Brunei Darussalam. The event is one of the first gatherings for Taycan owners in Brunei since the car’s launch in the nation in 2021. It also took the opportunity to gather together policy makers, manufacturers, and end users to network and discuss the future of electric vehicles, both locally and throughout the world.
The event was graced by the appointee of the Brunei Minister of Transport and Infocommunications, Yang Mulia Haji Mohammad Salihin bin Haji Aspar, Acting Deputy Permanent Secretary (Transport), Ministry of Transport and Infocommunications and Co-Chairman of the Electric Vehicle Joint Task Force (EVJTF); Mr. Xiang Yeow, Senior Specialist E-Performance at Porsche Asia Pacific, also attended the event.
In addition to the gathering of minds and public policymakers, Porsche Brunei also launched its first Porsche Destination Charging site in Brunei at the venue, marking a crucial milestone for Porsche Brunei as the transition to electric vehicles gathers pace.
Porsche Destination Charging forms part of the company’s comprehensive approach to creating a seamless charging ecosystem for its EV owners throughout the country. At home, Porsche Brunei offers bespoke solutions for private charging. Porsche Destination Charging will further augment public charging facilities with charging points at frequently-visited lifestyle locations.
“Today, we are not just celebrating the Taycan, but also a clear direction on the future of electric vehicles as we celebrate World EV Day.” Said Lahiru De Silva, General Manager of Porsche Brunei. “We thank you, our Taycan owners, for being the first investors of electric vehicles with us – a true Porsche sports car with an electrified soul.”
