Currently reading: Porsche sales hit record levels in 2021 as Taycan sales double
Stuttgart reports best sales on record last year, driven chiefly by SUVs and Taycan EV

Porsche is the latest car manufacturer to report record sales in 2021, delivering more than 300,000 vehicles in the face of drastic supply chain shortages. 

In the wake of similar announcements from Rolls-Royce, Lotus and sibling brand Bentley, Porsche has confirmed the highest delivery volumes in its 91-year history, driven largely by unprecedented demand for SUVs and its Porsche Taycan EV family.

In total, the brand sold 301,915 cars worldwide last year, an 11% increase year-on-year. Its most popular model, the Porsche Macan SUV, accounted for more than a third of this figure, with 88,362 units sold.

The larger Porsche Cayenne was close behind, selling 83,071 units, while demand for the two-year-old Taycan EV more than doubled to put it in third place with 41,296 units sold.
