Porsche is leading the pack, as it has been for a long time, with 13% of its vehicle sales coming from the fully electric Porsche Taycan. Second is Audi, somewhat of a surprise, with 9.9% of its sales coming from electric models. The three core variations of the e-tron — the Audi e-tron, Audi e-tron Sportback, and Audi e-tron GT — combined for 4,777 sales in the 2nd quarter, while the overall auto brand had 48,049 sales in the USA.

The two high-volume automakers that did best got fairly close to 5%. Close cousins and business partners Kia and Hyundai actually tied in this metric, with both of them getting 4% of their sales (on the dot) from fully electric models. Actually, since Kia is still selling the Niro EV and Hyundai is still selling the Kona Electric, both of them are surely above 4% and may be around 5%. Or they could be just trickling out those models as they transition to selling dedicated EV models like the EV6 and IONIQ 5. We simply don’t know.

A sizable drop below those Korean brands we have two more high-volume auto brands, Ford and Volkswagen.

It just confirms that the Taycan is a really attractive car. (Though the numbers are badly skewed without the inclusion of Tesla).

Not really if it’s specifically looking at legacy auto and percent of electric sales relative to their overall sales.

Tesla’s number would be pretty uninteresting. 100%. Same for Rivian, Lucid, etc.

The scope tells us how quickly legacy automakers are transitioning. Tesla is irrelevant to the data.

That's interesting and encouraging for sure. Once the Macan EV drops, I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the 30-40% range. Porsche has to be salivating at the thought of electrifying the lineup, and as long as they can get the software and service figured out, it might be a really easy choice for me when the time comes to buy something new.

Also how appealing the “transitioned” cars are to the buyers of said brands. Possibly more important than how many pure electric models they have. Folk have got to want to buy them.

Sound like a career opportunity.

it sounds like porsche and some other EV manufacturers need to expend the time and expense to properly train more techs for the cars they are selling.
