At the press conference, Oliver Bloom, CEO of Porsche AG, said that the company is sticking to its long-term goal of an operating margin of 15%. Porsche posted new records in deliveries, revenue and operating profit last year. Globally, Porsche delivered 3,01,915 vehicles, crossing the 3,00,000 mark for the first time in the company’s history.
The company said 40 percent of cars delivered in Europe last year were fully or partially electric. This proves that the company is now ready to make electric vehicles available globally. According to CEO Oliver Bloom, 50 percent of the cars sold by Porsche will be electric by 2025. In 2030, electric cars will account for 80 percent of Porsche’s production.
