Porsche Taycan EV Already has 30,000 Pre-Orders

Don’t think a fully-electric Porsche can work and the Taycan will be a flop? Think again.

Granted, we can’t find anyone that thinks that. We all know the upcoming Porsche Taycan will be smashing success among buyers with deep pockets, an environmental conscience, or those that have both. According to German publication Handelsblatt who spoke with Porsche head of production Albrecht Reimold and Human Ressources director Andreas Haffner, there are already 30,000 pre-orders for the electric Taycan.

To put that in perspective, that’s about 8,000 more pre-orders than what Volkswagen got for their recent fully-electric ID.3.

It’s obviously not anywhere close to the number of pre-orders Tesla got for the Model 3 so you don’t need to point that out, but we are talking about two different types of cars here. Everyone knows the Porsche Taycan will be a high-luxury vehicle that will at the very least be as expensive as a Tesla Model S, likely even more depending on trims and versions. For a $100k+ at minimum vehicle to get over 30,000 pre-orders in such a short time frame with little concrete facts about its specs and pricing is impressive.

5 Surprising Facts About the Porsche Taycan’s Production

If everyone who signed up for the Taycan buys it in the same year, the new Porsche electric vehicle would get almost as many sales as the 911 globally, and more sales than any Porsche model in North America. It would increase Porsche sales in the United States by almost 60 %.

The official debut of the new Porsche Taycan is scheduled for September 4th, and we can’t wait.
