2020 Porsche worldwide sales figures showed some legs despite the global plague. Remarkably, just three percent shy of record 2019 sales, Porsche AG delivered 272,162 new cars and SUVs in dreadful 2020 for us all.
“The corona crisis posed a great challenge from spring 2020 onwards,” understated Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “Nevertheless, we were able to keep deliveries comparatively stable for the year as a whole.”
2020 Porsche worldwide sales also comprised the debut into the international marketplace of the highly anticipated Taycan. Porsche’s first all-electric vehicle garnered sales of 20,015 units — in spite of a six-week lockdown that halted production.
The Cayenne even eked out a one-percent increase over last year amid the global chaos. Porsche’s larger SUV muscled through it all with leading sales of 92,860 units.
Porsche’s sports cars also contributed to better-than-expected annual worldwide revenues. Ever the perennial darling, Porsche’s iconic flagship 911 boasted deliveries of 34,328 units. The 718 Boxster and Cayman models garnered sales of 21,784 cars offering miles and miles of fun-filled driving. This represents a six percent increase over deliveries of the previous year.
As the chart above indicates, Porsche AG earned as-expected substantive sales in China. 88,968 vehicles found their way to Chinese customers — evincing an increase over 2019 of 2.6 percent. That same encompassing region of Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East bolstered these figures, with a similar 4.5 percent increase over last year, at deliveries of 121,641 vehicles.
Porsche recorded sales of 80,892 and 69,629 sports cars and SUVs in Europe and the Americas, respectively.
