Porsche wants more than 80% of new vehicles to be fully electric by 2030

Porsche set itself ambitious targets for electric cars when presenting its sales results for 2021. The Zuffenhausen-based sports car manufacturer aims for more than 80% of new vehicles to be fully electric by 2030 .

The company’s sales in 2021 were 33.1 billion euros, 4.4 billion euros more than the previous year and a growth of 15%.

Operating profit amounted to 5.3 billion euros, exceeding that of the previous year by 1.1 billion euros (+27%).

Porsche continued to increase efficiency and reduce the break-even point. This gives us the opportunity to invest in the future viability of our business despite the strained economic situation. We strongly encourage investments in electrification, digitization and sustainability.

Lutz Meschke, Chief Financial Officer.

In 2021, Porsche delivered 301,915 vehicles to customers around the world. This means that the 300,000 mark was exceeded for the first time in the company’s history (previous year: 272,162). The top-selling models were the midsize Macan SUV (88,362) and the large Cayenne SUV (83,071).

Delivery figures for the Taycan series more than doubled: 41,296 customers received the electric car in the sports sedan or in one of the station wagon versions. The series thus surpasses the iconic 911 sports car, although the latter also sets a new record with 38,464 units.

The Taycan is 100% Porsche and inspires people, current and new customers, experts and the specialist media. We are stepping up our electric offensive with another model: By the middle of the decade, we want to offer our 718 mid-engine sports car exclusively in fully electric form.

Olivier Blume, CEO of Porsche.

Un adelanto del diseño del nuevo 718 lo ofrece el studio del coche de carreras Mission R. El próximo coche eléctrico that will be launched initially the new generation of Macan as a pure electric vehicle in 2023, pero los models actuales con motor de combustion seguirán ofreciéndose por the moment.

Last year, almost 40% of all new Porsche vehicles delivered in Europe were electrified, i.e. plug-in hybrids or electric.

By 2025, half of the Porsches sold will be electric, i.e. fully electric or plug-in hybrids. By 2030, the proportion of all new vehicles with fully electric propulsion should be over 80%.

To achieve its e-mobility goals, Porsche is investing, together with its partners, in “high-end charging stationsand, moreover, in its own charging infrastructure.

“Major investments” will also be made in core technologies such as battery systems and module production. The new Cellforce group will develop and produce “high performance battery cells” which should be ready for mass production in 2024.
