In 2021 Porsche delivered more than double the number of its Taycan electric vehicle (EV). The Taycan, which is the brand’s first electric car, sold 41,296 units during the year. This figure was even higher than Porsche’s iconic 911 internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle which sold 38,464 units.
Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, said: “The Taycan is 100 percent a Porsche and inspires all kinds of people – existing and new customers, experts and the trade media.
“We are stepping up our offensive with another model: By the middle of the decade, we want to offer our mid-engine 718 sports car exclusively in an all-electric form.”
Last year, almost 40 percent of all new Porsche vehicles delivered in Europe were already at least partly electric, including both plug-in hybrids or fully electric models.
The brand also launched its new electric Taycan Cross Turismo estate car in 202. In addition, Porsche announced its intention to be carbon-neutral on the balance sheet in 2030.
Blume added: “In 2025, half of all new Porsche sales are expected to come from the sale of electric vehicles. In 2030, the share of all new vehicles with an all-electric drive should be more than 80 percent.”
To achieve these ambitious goals, Porsche is investing in premium charging stations together with partners, and additionally, in its own charging infrastructure. Further extensive investments are flowing into core technologies such as battery systems and module production.
In the newly founded Cellforce Group, high-performance battery cells are being developed and produced that are expected to be ready for series production by 2024.
