The Taycan is already Porsche's best selling model

It has even taken over the 911 and Cayenne sales

38w ago

After just for a few months, the Taycan is already Porsche's best selling model in Europe meaning it is really the future of Porsche.

Porsche only started shipping the Taycan a few months ago, and yet they're still able to shift a £100,000 EV more times than a Cayenne, Panamera, 911, all of the models. Admittedly, the North America sales are a bit slower but in Europe the Taycan is doing very well indeed.

Last month, the Taycan became Porsche’s best-selling vehicle in Europe, outselling the Porsche 911 with 1,183 units. Having said that, these results are during COVID world but even still, these buyers don't seem to be afraid to splash the cash on a brand new EV.

With Taycan sales being so strong, it makes you wonder how it will progress. Is this spike in sales just due to the EV craze? Or is this it? Do people not care for cars such as the 911 or Panamera anymore. It begs the question: Should all cars turn to being EVs?

Are you surprised by this?

  • It seems to be stealing from the Panameras sales but they are very similar. As much as I think there is a flaw in the whole concept of electric cars, I would prefer people drove these than Teslas!

  • I'd rather a Taycan than a Panamera, but then I'd rather have hernia surgery than a Panamera so...

  • In the UK there is 0% benefit in kind for company cars, most are therefore bought/leased that way which essentially allows you have a fast car paid by companies and not pay tax on it. Because the leases are an overhead charge it reduces profit and also corporation tax. Tax breaks won’t last forever.

    I suspect there are similar incentives in Europe too so this is a ‘no brainer’

    • Is this still true? I thought they changed the rules a few years ago increasing the % to around 5%. Either way it is much more attractive for a company car than the traditional diesel which most are now at 35%.

    • It is indeed, 2020/21 it’s 0%, 2021/22 it’s 1% and 2022/23 it’s 2%. This is why company car drivers are switching in droves, if it weren’t for the pandemic I’d go back into an electric company car for the tax break.
