Centre Principal, Tom Fox, has officially unveiled Lancashire’s first Porsche Destination Charging point - located in West Lancashire.
The new installation, at Moor Hall Restaurant with Rooms in Aughton, is part of the recently announced commercial partnership between the two-star Michelin Restaurant and our Centre.
The Porsche Destination Charging programme was launched in May. It will see Porsche roll out charging points at selected hotels, airports, museums, shopping centres, sports clubs and marinas. The Porsche mission to expand electric mobility follows the February launch of the first all-electric Porsche - the Taycan.
Tom said: “The Porsche Destination Charging programme already offers over 1,000 charging points across 20 countries. There are now plans to add 200 Porsche Destination Charging points across the UK. This means that - in addition to charging at public charging points, at home or at Porsche Centres - Porsche electric and hybrid owners can also charge their vehicles at a global network of luxury hotels, fine restaurants and premium venues, just like Moor Hall. We are especially pleased to install Lancashire’s first Porsche electric charge point as part of our new commercial partnership with Moor Hall.”
Destinations with charging points like Moor Hall will be listed locations on Porsche.com, Porsche vehicle satellite navigation systems and the Porsche Connect App.
Mark Birchall, Chef Patron of Moor Hall Restaurant with Rooms, said: “The whole EV future really interests me, so getting a charging point installed was a great first step in our partnership with Porsche Centre Preston.”
