For the first quarter of 2022, Porsche's global deliveries to customers amounted to 68,426. This represents a decrease of 5% compared to the previous year. "In light of the extraordinary circumstances affecting most of the automotive industry, our sales teams and dealers performed well in the first quarter," said Detlev von Platen, member of the Executive Board responsible for sales and marketing at Porsche AG. "The resurgence of the coronavirus in some regions, such as China, combined with the continuing serious challenges in resources and logistics, has put us all to the test. At the same time, our products continue to be in high demand by customers around the world – with equal strength in Europe, America and China."
SUV models remain extremely popular
The strongest demand is again for Porsche SUV models: Porsche Cayenne has been delivered to 19,029 customers. Macan delivers 18,329 units. The all-electric Porsche Taycan goes to 9,470 customers. The iconic 911 made 9327 sports car deliveries worldwide. A total of 7735 Panamera go to customers. An additional 4,536 units of the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman were delivered.
Auto Trendy’s take:
We, at Auto Trendy, have noticed that, despite the existing challenges, many auto makers are keeping a good pace in selling their products. However, the effects of high inflation rates and the war in Ukraine are still to be observed as the year proceeds, and we hope that they are not too bad. The bottom line is that all results are most decisive by the end of each year, and we will be there to inform you.
