Here we go again. After Lamborghini and Bentley posted record sales for 2021, Porsche is making a similar announcement. The magic number is 301,915 or 11 percent more than the year before thanks to a growth in demand in all global sales regions. Once again, China represented the biggest single market and enjoyed an increase of eight percent to 95,671 vehicles. With a 22-percent growth, the United States generated 70,025 sales.
At home in Germany, sales rose by nine percent to 28,565 units, helping Porsche to boost customer demand in Europe by seven percent to 86,160 cars. Interestingly, about 40 percent of all cars delivered on the Old Continent in 2021 had either a plug-in hybrid or a purely electric setup. Zuffenhausen’s solid growth might come as a surprise given the microchip shortage on top of the coronavirus pandemic disrupting the automotive industry.
