Porsche confirmed that they are not only increasing their EV sales targets, but will also be rolling out a hybrid version of their iconic 911 sports car.
The company announced that it expects 80 per cent of its new vehicle sales to be all-electric by 2030. This is an update to their previous sales target that included EVs and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
However, the company did not want to break down the sale targets for non-all-electric vehicles.
So far, Porsche has a single all-electric vehicle, the Taycan. The car sold well in 2021 and accounted for 14 per cent of total vehicle sales for the company.
In fact, the Taycan beat out the 911 in total sales by over 2,800 vehicles. Reportedly, the Taycan’s strong sales are continuing into 2022.
Porsche is gearing up for the next two EVs in terms of the next steps.
The Macan SUV will debut in 2023, followed by the 718 sports car in 2025. Porsche did not confirm when the 911 hybrid would make its debut, nor did they provide any timeframe for the vehicle.
However, Porsche is one of the only brands to not completely give up on internal combustion vehicles and go full EV.
The company is investing $24 million in developing e-fuels to replace gasoline as a climate-neutral fuel.
