Porsche is demonstrating resilience in the face of the coronavirus crisis. In the first three quarters of 2020, Porsche delivered 191,547 vehicles to customers worldwide. Compared to the same period in the previous year, this was a reduction of five percent.
"Thanks to a fresh, updated product portfolio, we have been able to keep the decline in deliveries to a moderate level”, says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “The Chinese market has recovered quickly after the lockdown, and demand in other markets is also showing significant growth once again – all of which has contributed to achieving this result”.
China continues to be the largest single market for Porsche in terms of volume, accounting for 62,823 vehicles from January through September.
Positive trends are also evident in Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East as a whole: with 87,030 vehicle deliveries, the sports car manufacturer achieved a slight increase of one percent year-on-year.
Customers in the US received 39,734 vehicles. In Europe, Porsche delivered 55,483 sports cars between January and September.
