Porsche confirms an overwhelming response for its first all-electric sports car, the Taycan.
Porsche has reportedly sold 10,994 Taycan in just nine months, starting January 202. To be fair, however, the numbers in the third quarter make up for the largest part. January to June saw sales figures of 4480 units, whereas the next three months contributed with 6464.
Furthermore, it’s essential to keep in mind that the COVID-19 pandemic obviously negatively impacted businesses, so Taycan sales could have been even higher.
Porsche’s North American executive vice president and COO, Joe Lawrence, stated, “The third quarter remained challenging for many people, so I am grateful to our customers for their enthusiasm and to our dealers and their employees for the energy they continue to bring to Porsche. We’ve never had such an exciting lineup in US showrooms—with demand for the new all-electric Taycan growing to the point that it was our third best-selling model line this quarter, just behind the Macan and Cayenne.”
Globally, Porsche received a total of 30,000 pre-orders for the Taycan with 10,000 firm commitments to buy.
Thanks to two electric motors providing 616 hp, the Porsche Taycan accelerates from 0-62 mph in just 3.5 seconds and comes equipped with high-voltage lithium-ion batteries good enough for around 200 miles of EPA range.
A hit among the critics, the ever-increasing sales assure the automaker of the excellent response from its customers.
And the most interesting point here is that, at the current rate, Porsche Taycan is even outselling the iconic 911!
