Since the traditional market performance is in a depleting stage for Porsche a lot of research has been done around the battery charging technologies. Faster and safer charging experiences using algorithms might change how car users think about the popular car manufacturer.
Using the new battery technology, the company should be in a battle with the upcoming electric car manufacturing companies like Tesla, Neo, and others around the world.
“Porsche is demonstrating resilience in the face of the coronavirus crises. Thanks to a fresh, updated product portfolio, we have been able to keep the decline in deliveries to a moderate level. The Chinese market has recovered quickly after the lockdown, and demand in other markets is also showing significant growth once again – all of which has contributed to achieving this result.”
