With the start of the new year, automakers are beginning to release their Q4 and 2021 full year sales figures.
The latest is Porsche, which announced they were able to more than double sales of the electric Taycan in the United States last year.
According to figures released by the German automaker today, they sold 4,414 Taycans in the U.S. in 2020, the first full year of production of the electric sports car.
In 2021, that number rose to 9,419 units, an increase of more than 113% compared to the previous year.
In a sign of the growing demand for electric vehicles (EVs), the Taycan accounted for 13.5% of Porsche’s North American sales in 2021.
The Taycan also outsold the Boxster and Cayman 718 variants, and came within 623 units of outselling the iconic Porsche 911.
The boost from the strong Taycan performance helped the German automaker increase their overall North American sales by 22% from 57,294 to 70,025 units.
It was also 14% higher than 2019, which was their previous record for the highest number of sales in a single year in Canada and the US at 61,658 units.
