Porsche has delivered 9,072 units of the Porsche Taycan world-wide in the first quarter of 2021, only 61 units behind the Porsche 911.
Out of the 71,986 Porsches delivered this year, the Taycan contributed to 12.6% of that number (1 in 8).
Compared to the 2020, deliveries of the Taycan in Q1 2021 have multiplied 5.5 times over from 1,391 units.
Porsche's sales for Q1 2021 is 36% more from 2020’s figure of 53,125 units, thanks to demand that mainly comes from China.
Automotive News Europe reports that the Taycan is Porsche’s litmus test for its costly shift to EVs.
Porsche is VW group’s biggest profit contributor by far, and boosting EV sales will be key to maintaining healthy margins.
Having debuted in 2019, the Porsche Taycan is Porsche’s luxury EV saloon that is positioned below the Panamera.
In Malaysia, the Porsche Taycan (saloon) was initially launched in September 2020 with three variants – the Taycan 4S, Taycan Turbo, and Taycan Turbo S.
Later in January 2020, Porsche Malaysia added the Taycan RWD to the line up, which starts at a base price of RM 584,561.
The Taycan Cross Tursimo has also open for pre-orders since March for Malaysians who wish to own one.
Still retaining the Porsche heritage despite being electric, the Taycan will be joined by many more Porsche EVs to come in the future.
