Demand for SUVs is still high and the Porsche Cayenne sold the most number of units in the first half of the year
Badly hit by the ongoing Coronavirus COVID 19 pandemic, Porsche recorded sales of 116964 units globally in the first half of the year. Following the pandemic, the Porsche dealerships across the world had to remain shut for weeks and deliveries halted. Thus, the net sales have fallen by a decent 12 percent this time around.
SUVs remain the highest selling genre for Porsche worldwide. The Cayenne sold as many as 39245 units followed by 34430 units of the Macan. The all-new Porsche 911 is amassing great acceptance among the global motoring community. The sportscar managed to sell 16919 units despite the slowdown. This is a 2% rise from the previous year. The Taycan too is finding a decent number of buyers in the international markets. Around 4480 units of Porsche’s first-ever electric sportscar have so far been sold this year.
Asia Pacific, Africa, and the Middle East have been exhibiting positive trends for the carmaker. Almost 55550 cars have been delivered here despite the pandemic. China still remains the largest single market for the marque. 24186 brand new Porsches found buyers in the US in the first half of 2020.
