This is how many cars Porsche has sold in 2020 so far
Porsche’s Q3 sales figures are in – and they show resilience in the face of coronavirus.
In the first three quarters of 2020, Porsche delivered 191,547 cars to customers around the world – a five per cent drop compared to last year.
“Thanks to a fresh, updated product portfolio, we have been able to keep the decline in deliveries to a moderate level,” said Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “The Chinese market has recovered quickly after the lockdown, and demand in other markets is also showing significant growth once again – all of which has contributed to achieving this result.”
China continues to be the largest single market for Porsche in terms of volume, accounting for 62,823 vehicles from January to September. Positive trends are also evident in Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East as a whole: with 87,030 vehicle deliveries, the sports car manufacturer achieved a slight increase of one per cent year-on-year. Customers in the US received 39,734 vehicles while in Europe, Porsche delivered 55,483 cars.
In terms of models, the Cayenne continued to lead demand: 64,299 units went to customers in the first nine months. The continued popularity of the Coupé model contributed to an increase of deliveries by four per cent compared to the previous year. The iconic 911 also contributed to the healthy numbers, with 25,400 units being delivered – a rise of one per cent. The Macan was the second biggest seller, with 55,124 vehicle deliveries, while 10,944 customers got the keys to the all-electric Taycan.
“Porsche was not spared the effects of the coronavirus crisis. However, we look to the future with optimism – in particular thanks to our convincing product range and a continued increase in new orders,” added von Platen.
