All signs point forwards at Porsche in Leipzig: Preparations for the start of electromobility are underway across the plant. All construction work is on schedule. The external work on the new body shop for the third-generation Macan, the first fully electric version, is now complete. The next step is to set up the plant inside the building. To facilitate this project, Porsche is investing more than 600 million euro at its Leipzig site. The foundation stone was laid for the new body shop with a total area of 75,500 square metres in March 2019.

In addition to the work on the new body shop, the assembly line is being modified significantly. Porsche is expanding the existing production line and has scheduled this work to fit in with the upcoming summer plant shutdown. When the work is complete, three different drive types will be produced on a single line: petrol, hybrid and pure electric vehicles. This new setup will give the Porsche Leipzig plant maximum flexibility.

The customer centre is already equipped for electric vehicles: This February, Porsche set up a fast charging park called “Porsche Turbo Charging”, which offers a total capacity of seven megawatts. The Leipzig site is therefore home to Europe’s most powerful fast charging park, which operates exclusively on electricity from renewable energy sources.
