- By 2022, Porsche will have invested more than six billion euros in e-mobility
- The brand will bring its first purely electric sports car to the market in 2019 in the form of the new Taycan
- Purist models with internal combustion engines will continue to play an important role in the Porsche product portfolio
In a bid to intensify its focus on hybrid drive and electrification, Porsche has announced that it will no longer offer diesel propulsion for its entire car range.
By 2022, Porsche will have invested more than six billion euros in e-mobility, creating the basis for sustainable growth into the future. According to the brand, interest in hybrid models is already taking off. 63 per cent of the Panameras sold in Europe, for example, are hybrid models. Demand for diesel models, on the other hand, is dropping. In 2017, the diesel share of Porsche’s global sales was 12 per cent. Porsche has not had a diesel in its portfolio since February of this year. Due to this change in conditions, the company has decided to no longer offer diesel propulsion in future.
With the Taycan, Porsche will bring its first purely electric sports car to the market in 2019 – its manufacture is CO2 neutral and it is supplied with green electricity via an ultra-fast charging infrastructure spread over Europe. By 2025, every second new Porsche vehicle could have an electric drive – either hybrid or purely electric. Fortunately for the enthusiasts, the brand is also concentrating on optimised internal combustion engines. Purist and powerful sports cars will thus continue to play an important role in the Porsche product portfolio.
