“Given the exceptional circumstances affecting the wider automotive industry, our sales teams and dealerships delivered strong results in the first quarter”said Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. « The resurgence of the coronavirus in certain regions such as China, coupled with significant ongoing supply and logistics challenges, has tested us. At the same time, our products continue to be in high demand by customers all over the world – also in Europe, America and China. »
The most popular model remains the Porsche Cayenne with no less than 19,029 units delivered. Next comes the Macan with 18,329 units sold during the first quarter of 2022.

At the bottom of the table, we find the 7735 copies of the Panamera then the 4536 deliveries of the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman.
“We remain cautious heading into the second quarter, particularly given the armed conflict in Ukraine, which we view with dismay and concern for those affected. The health and safety of people is paramount. The impact on our business operations is continuously reviewed and evaluated by our panel of experts. Despite all of this, we remain optimistic in our overall outlook and will not compromise when it comes to creating emotional and unique experiences for our customers. »says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG.
