Porsche saw a slight rise in delivery numbers at the end of the third quarter. Overall, there were 221,512 Porsche units delivered in the first nine months of 2022 which is a 2 percent increase compared to the same period last year. Porsche saw the most significant increase in deliveries in the sales region of Europe and in the German market. The Porsche Cayenne still remains the most popular model.
Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG shared, “We have managed to increase our delivery numbers in the first nine months of the year – in spite of various challenges. The popularity of Porsche as a modern luxury brand, as well as our products, is equally high on every continent. At the same time, we are still concerned about limitations to the supply of parts, which can impact waiting times for customers.”
Biggest Growth in Home Region
The sales region Europe saw the biggest gains with a double digit growth. Porsche delivered 42,204 vehicles from January to September – an 11% increase compared to the same period last year. In Germany, its home market, 20,850 units were delivered to customers, which is a 9% gain. China remains to be their largest single market, where Porsche delivered 68,766 vehicles, though it is a 1% decline. The limitations set by the months-long lockdowns were essentially balanced by the third quarter deliveries.
Porsche recorded 56,357 deliveries in the North American market, a slight decline of 4% which can be attributed to the logistical challenges faced especially during the first quarter. Accelerated deliveries done during the third quarter helped to greatly minimize the gap to the delivery numbers which were posted last year.
Cayenne Is Still Most Popular
The Porsche SUV models are still in high demand among customers. Posting 66,769 delivery numbers, the Porsche Cayenne has successfully and undeniably defended their top spot. In the second most popular spot is the Macan, recording 59,604 delivery numbers.
The legendary sports car, the 911, has continued to grow in popularity, with 30,611 units delivered, which means a 9% growth in deliveries. 25,452 customers were able to receive their Panamera. Worldwide, Porsche delivered around 25,073 units of the all-electric Taycan, which is a 12% decline in delivery mostly due to the supply chain-related issues and the decline of available parts. Though the order book for the Taycan remains strong, these two factors greatly affected the delivery of the electric sports car. 14,003 examples of the 718 Boxster and the 718 Cayman models were also delivered.
Detlev von Platen added, “The fourth-quarter sprint is in full swing and we need to stay on our toes regarding external factors and uncertainties. At the same time, we are tackling the remaining three months of the year full of resolve and vigor.”
