Porsche Plans To Produce More Than 50% Of Their Cars Electric By 2025
One of the biggest car manufacturers Porsche has announced that they will now produce electric cars in an attempt to overtake Tesla, the market leader.
Klaus Zellmer, the North American Chief said while attending the Los Angeles Auto Show, “The future is electric,” He added that they are planning to add battery-power vehicles.
“By 2025 Porsche will have crossed a tipping point, actually building more than 50 percent of its annual volume … with either plug-in hybrid technology or fully battery,” Zellmer said.
However, Porsche will not eliminate the idea of a combustion engine.
Porsche recently revealed its newest battery-powered Taycan, a 100% electric sports car. This car was unveiled at Frankfurt’s International Auto Show in September. This car is able to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour. Find more about the car in the following video:
This car was meant to take over Tesla, the California form, the dominant electric car manufacturer in the market. Tesla rules the United States market which is Porsche’s second-largest market. Last year, the German brand has sold 57,000 cars in the US.
Tesla’s Y Model will compete for the Porsche electric version of SUV, the Mecan in 2021. According to the North American Chief, “The electric Macan will compete in many different segments — it’s going to draw many people from different segments”.
Porsche is already facing competition in China. Zellmer also identified that the reason for the lack of electric cars was very few charging facilities in big cities
