Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid sales - March 2015

Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid sales - March 2015

Porsche introduced its first plug-in hybrid model - theĀ Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid - in the US in October 2013.

Since then, through to the end of March, 1,110 were delivered.

Comparing sales of the plug-in version to all sales of Panamera we find that between 10 and 15% of customers chose the plug-in.

For the whole of 2014, the average share for Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid was 15.3%.

In 2015, sales have started off by going down year-over-year, although 10% share isĀ maintained.

Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid has been available for just five months. Sales are slightly higher than for Panamera S E-Hybrid.

Average share through the first 309 sales stands at over 5% of all Porsche Cayenne sales in US.

Porsche, despite being an established brand, probably must reconcile that Cayenne S E-Hybrid will be massively oversold by the all-electric Tesla Model X when it eventually arrives.

There is third plug-in model - Porsche 918 Spyder, but even we at InsideEVs struggle to count it as an electric car.

Anyways, 154 deliveries in less than a year indicates that many customers of high-end sport cars are willing to pick an electrified one over conventional drive.
