Porsche Taycan EV global sales slumped in Q1 2023 to 9,152 units
Porsche Taycan EV has witnessed a slump in its global sales in the first quarter of the current calendar year. The German luxury high-performance car manufacturer has further said that it has sold more than 105,000 Taycan EVs globally so far. In the first quarter of 2023, it sold only 9,152 units, which registered a 3.4 per cent decline compared to the same period last year. The sales numbers include all three variants of the Porsche Taycan: Taycan, Taycan Cross Turismo and Taycan GTS. The Porsche Taycan's share out of the brand's total volume amounted to 11.3 per cent in the first quarter of this year, compared to nearly 14 per cent a year ago.
Porsche has attributed this sales decline for the Taycan EV to the ongoing supply chain crisis. However, the automaker hopes the situation will improve. It suggests that Porsche Taycan EV may reach the 40,000 units sales mark in 2023. Interestingly, Taycan is the first electric car from the German brand and the only Porsche model in the red.
