Porsche has exciting news for Taycan owners in the United States as it partners with Apple Maps to enhance the driving experience. The luxury automaker announced today that Taycan models will now integrate Apple Maps EV routing in CarPlay, offering a seamless navigation system that guides users to nearby electric vehicle charging facilities.
With the introduction of Apple Maps EV routing, Taycan owners can conveniently plan travel routes that incorporate stops for charging. Previously, users had to exit CarPlay to create a route that included charging stops manually, but this latest integration streamlined the process, making it more convenient than ever.
Taycan vehicles already come equipped with the Porsche Charging Planner. This sophisticated feature optimizes charging stops based on factors such as the anticipated state of charge upon arrival at a destination, traffic conditions, and average speed. While this internal tool remains highly capable, Porsche recognizes the value of offering alternatives to suit individual preferences. Hence, the addition of Apple Maps EV routing is an alternative for Taycan owners who rely on CarPlay.
Apple Maps EV routing leverages real-time vehicle information to guide customers to their desired destinations, providing recommendations for charging stops along the way when necessary. By analyzing various factors, including elevation changes along the route, Apple Maps determines the optimal moments to suggest a charging stop. Furthermore, if the vehicle’s battery level becomes critically low, the system will automatically generate a route to the nearest compatible charging station.
For U.S.-based Taycan owners who have installed the latest My Porsche app on their iPhones, the integration of Apple Maps EV routing is now available. This integration underscores Porsche’s commitment to providing cutting-edge technology and ensures that Taycan drivers have access to a comprehensive and user-friendly EV charging infrastructure.

As the automotive industry continues to embrace electrification, partnerships like this pave the way for a more seamless and enjoyable driving experience for EV enthusiasts across the country.
