Porsche has announced that it aims for over 80% of its production output to be all-electric vehicles by 2030.
Last year, almost 40% of all new Porsche vehicles delivered in Europe were already at least partly electric – i.e. plug-in hybrids or fully electric models.
In addition, Porsche had announced its intention to be carbon-neutral on the balance sheet in 2030.
Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, said: “In 2025, half of all new Porsche sales are expected to come from the sale of electric vehicles – i.e. all-electric or plug-in hybrid. In 2030, the share of all new vehicles with an all-electric drive should be more than 80%.”
To achieve these ambitious goals, Porsche is investing in premium charging stations together with partners – and additionally in its own charging infrastructure.
Further extensive investments are flowing into core technologies such as battery systems and module production.
In the newly founded Cellforce Group, high-performance battery cells are being developed and produced that are expected to be ready for series production by 2024.
In 2021, Porsche delivered 301,915 vehicles to customers worldwide. This means that the 300,000 mark was exceeded for the first time in the company’s history (previous year: 272,162 deliveries).
The bestselling models were the Macan (88,362) and the Cayenne (83,071). Delivery figures for the Taycan more than doubled: 41,296 customers took delivery of the first all-electric Porsche.
This even overtook the iconic 911 sports car, although the latter also set a new record with 38,464 units.
Oliver Blume said: “The Taycan is 100% a Porsche and inspires all kinds of people – existing and new customers, experts and the trade media. We are stepping up our electric offensive with another model; by the middle of the decade, we want to offer our mid-engine 718 sports car exclusively in an all-electric form.”
