Porsche has announced the worldwide delivery figures for the first three quarters of 2020. Compared to 2019, the current figures show a slight decrease of 5 percent due to the impact of the corona virus. The Cayenne was the most popular, followed by the Macan.
The Stuttgart brand has put 191,547 cars on the road in the first three quarters this year. In 2019, this was 202,318, which shows that Porsche has not remained completely free of the effects of the corona virus on the car market. However, the number of cars delivered did not decrease in all markets. The American market was hit hardest with a decline of 11%, followed by the European market with 9%. In Asia, Africa and the Middle East, on the other hand, Porsche has managed to sell 1% more cars. The Cayenne is the delivery topper with a total of 64,299 cars, followed by the Macan with 55,124 units. Of the 911, 25,400 have entered the roads of the world. With 10,944 delivered cars, the Taycan is still a minority of the total.
According to Detlev von Platen, Director of Sales and Marketing at Porsche, the figures show that Porsche has weathered the corona crisis well. “Thanks to a fresh portfolio, we have been able to limit the drop in deliveries,” he says. “The Chinese market has recovered quickly after the lockdown and demand in other markets is also showing growth. Porsche has not been spared by the corona crisis, but thanks to our model portfolio and an increasing number of new orders we look to the future with optimism.”
The Netherlands in the plus
In the Netherlands, Porsche sold more cars in 2020 than in 2019, according to the sales figures of Techzle. The counter for this year so far stands at 1,562 copies, compared to 1,334 last year. Although the Taycan represents a minority worldwide, this EV is relatively much more important in the Netherlands. The 331 Taycans sold are largely responsible for the increasing sales of Porsche in our country.
