Porsche's Q1 global sales figure dropped by 5%

By sep, 15 April 2022

Porsche delivered over 68,000 vehicles in the first quarter of 2022

Porsche has reported that they've successfully delivered a total of 68,426 units to customers around the globe within the first four months of 2022. While that might be a huge figure, it actually represents a 5% decline compared to the same period of 2021.

'Exceptional circumstances' were determined as the cause of this drop such as the resurgence of COVID-10 in some regions, as well supply plus logistical issues. Nevertheless, Europe and Germany saw an increase of 18% and 16% respectively. The rest? Quite a drop as well, particularly America and China which saw a sales decline of 25% and 20%.

As for Porsche Asia Pacific (Malaysia is included in this region), a 10% drop was reported but thanks to the recently-launched locally-assembled program here in the country, we can expect a pretty decent recovery within the next few months with the Cayenne.

In fact, the Cayenne has been the brand's highest demand so far, with over 19,00 units delivered to customers around the globe. The Macan isn't too far behind with 18,329 units, followed by the Taycan (9,470 units), 911 (9,327 units), Panamera (7,735 units), and the 718 (4,536 units).

According to Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG, "The impact on our business activities is being continuously reviewed and assessed by our task force of experts. In spite of all this, we remain optimistic in our overall outlook and won't be making any compromises when it comes to creating emotive and unique experiences for our customers."
