Like other luxury carmakers in India, Porsche too is seeing strong demand for its model range. Porsche India, with 378 new car deliveries, has recorded 118% sales growth for the first half of 2022.

Overcoming continual challenges that impact the automotive industry worldwide, Porsche India has delivered more cars between January to June this year than the individual full year figures from 2018, 2019 and 2020. In CY2021, the German carmaker had sold 474 units.

The surging demand for SUVs saw the Cayenne (167 units) and Macan (125 units) accounting for 77% of all sales, followed by the all-electric Taycan with 37 units. Porsche’s iconic 911 Coupé recorded 27 units and the family-sized limousine Panamera accounted for 19 sales.

Manolito Vujicic: “July marks 10 years of Porsche India and there’s no better way to acknowledge this than with our best-ever half-year sales performance for H1 2022.”

Manolito Vujicic, Brand Director, Porsche India said the figures are an encouraging sign that the industry is recovering with demand for high-end sports cars returning to pre-pandemic levels: “July marks 10 years of Porsche India serving this region and there’s no better way to acknowledge this than with our best ever half year sales performance for the first half of 2022.

“With the continued push towards electrification, we are heartened to see strong demand for the Taycan from day one, making it our third best-seller so far this year. Our customers and stakeholders have been outstanding and continue to be the backbone that lets Porsche India thrive. We strongly believe that success breeds success and building on our 2021 performance which was our best full year since 2014 and our strong 2022 first half, we are delighted to welcome two new retail partners to the Porsche India network which will be announced in the coming months.”

Earlier this year, KUN Premium Cars has been appointed as the dealer partner in Chennai and VST Supercars as the dealer partner in Bengaluru.
