Taycan best selling Porsche in Europe
The electric Taycan has become in August of this year Porsche’s best-selling model, outclassing the ever-popular 911 and the Cayenne if you don’t add its figures with that of the Cayenne Coupe. This appears from European registration figures from JATO.
According to these figures, 4 986 Porsches were sold in August. The Taycan leads the pack, with 1 183 new sold in August, followed by the 911 with 1 097 (down 37%), the Cayenne with 711 (equal), Macan with 646 (down 62%), Cayenne Coupe with 554 (up 29%), the 718 with 517 (down 5%).
The Panamera was suffering the most under the corona crisis with 278 (down 71%). Or did the Taycan cannibalize part of it?
EVs representing 21,4%
According to JATO, the Porsche Taycan was the 5th best-selling car in E-segment, and the 15th best-selling electric car overall in Europe that month. In total, Europeans bought 188 700 electrified vehicles, an increase of 121% compared to August 2019, representing 21,4% of total registrations. The latter is an industry record, says JATO. Without it, car sales would have been damaged even further by the pandemic.
The best-selling full-electric car in Europe in August was still the Tesla Model 3 (6 922), followed by the Renault Zoe (6 136), Hyundai Kona (4 012), Kia Niro (3 376), Volkswagen Golf (2 655), Audi E-tron (2 207), Peugeot 208 (2 070), Nissan Leaf (1 992), Mini Hatch (1 689) and on ten, the BMW i3 (1 467).
