In the first quarter of 2022, Porsche delivered 68,426 units to customers around the world. This represents a decrease of 5% compared to the previous year.

“Given the exceptional circumstances affecting the wider automotive industry, our sales teams and dealerships performed well in the first quarter. The resurgence of the coronavirus in certain regions such as China, coupled with significant supply and logistics challenges, has tested us. At the same time, our products continue to be in high demand from customers around the world – also in Europe, the Americas and China. »said Detlev von Platen, Porsche AG Board Member for Sales and Marketing.

Growth in Europe
The multi-faceted challenges facing the sports car manufacturer in different parts of the world have painted a varied picture when it comes to deliveries. In Europe, Porsche delivered 22,791 vehicles in the first quarter of 2022, marking an increase of 18% year-on-year – despite very strong figures over the same period in 2021. Numbers also increased in the German domestic market, with 6,925 deliveries representing an increase of 16%. In China, the largest single market for Porsche, the sports car maker made 17,685 deliveries. The novel coronavirus outbreak coupled with the closure of Porsche Centers in some regions and logistical challenges resulted in a 20% drop in deliveries. A total of 28,991 vehicles were delivered to Porsche customers in Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. In the United States, 13,042 vehicles were delivered to Porsche customers despite supply and transit issues affecting several automotive brands. This compares to the best first quarter of the previous year.

SUVs remain hugely popular
The greatest demand was once again for SUV models from Porsche: the Porsche Cayenne was delivered to 19,029 customers. Macan deliveries totaled 18,329. The all-electric Porsche Taycan went to 9,470 customers. The sports car icon, the 911, has been delivered 9,327 times worldwide. A total of 7,735 copies of the Panamera went to customers. 4,536 additional deliveries of 718 Boxsters and 718 Caymans were made.

“We remain cautious as we approach the second quarter, particularly in light of the armed conflict in Ukraine, which we view with dismay and concern for those involved. The health and safety of people is paramount. The impact on our business activities is continuously reviewed and assessed by our group of experts. Despite all of this, we remain optimistic in our overall outlook and will not compromise when it comes to creating emotive and unique experiences for our customers. »added Detlev von Platen.
