Now, thanks to modern technology, the 1.21 gigawatts of combined electricity has now been made available through the European Ionity and Electrify America charging networks. While drivers will not be time travelling with this charge, the new benchmark now allows the two electrical giants have now claimed the largest DC fast-charging network in the U.S. and Europe. With this news, Porsche paired off their hot-selling Taycan Turbo S EV took advantage of the network.
