Porsche isn’t interested in building a factory in China, even though the country is its biggest single market.

Last year, Porsche sold 272,162 vehicles and of those, 88,968 were delivered in China. That was more than the 80,892 vehicles sold in Europe and the 57,294 in the United States. While other premium automakers such as Audi, Mercedes and BMW, have decided to capitalize on growing Chinese sales by manufacturing vehicles locally, Porsche chief executive Oliver Blume said he doesn’t have any interest in following suit.

“It is a quality and a premium argument still to produce from Europe for China,” he told the Financial Times. “Today it doesn’t make any sense [to move production]. In 10 years, I don’t know. It depends a lot on how volume develops and also the regulations in each country.”

Blume added that by continuing to make the majority of Porsche’s new vehicles in Germany, it can maintain more stable prices. He added it is worth absorbing higher costs of production in Germany to protect the ‘Made in Germany’ image of the company (even though the Cayenne is built in Slovakia).

This isn’t the first time Porsche has poured cold water on the idea of it producing vehicles in the People’s Republic. In fact, Blume told Chinese media in early 2019 that it didn’t make any sense for the company to begin manufacturing vehicles locally.

While Porsche is sticking to its guns, a report last week suggesting it will open an assembly plant in Malaysia runs contrary to Blume’s statements. However, the veracity of this report remains unclear.


Peugeot has launched an all-electric version of its Rifter MPV, giving it the ‘e’ prefix and offering it in five- or seven-seat configurations.

Set to arrive at dealers across Europe later this year, it uses the same powertrain as the e-Partner, with a 136 PS (134 HP / 100 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque electric motor and a 50 kWh battery. The e-Rifter has a total driving range of up to 275 km (171 miles) in the WLTP cycle, a 134 km/h (83 mph) top speed and can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 11.2 seconds.

“The new e-Rifter is our latest electric model, and is one step closer to fulfilling our promise of offering an electrified variant across our entire model lineup by 2023”, said the brand’s UK managing director, Julie David. “With a range of practical features and available in five- or seven-seat configurations, we believe the e-Rifter is the ideal choice for both families and businesses looking for a versatile, zero emissions vehicle and are excited to introduce it to our customers later this year.”

The e-Rifter comas as standard with a 7.4 kW single-phase charger and optionally with a 11 kW, three-phase one. Its battery pack supports 100 kW fast charging and takes 30 minutes to be filled from 0 to 80 percent with the 11 kW charger. At a 7.4 kW wallbox, a full charge takes 7.5 hours, or 5 hours when using the 11 kW charger.

Just like the e-Partner, drivers have three modes available at the push of a button. The ‘Eco’ limits the electric motor’s output and torque to 82 PS (80 HP / 60 kW) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft), ‘Normal’ brings 109 PS (107 HP / 80 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft), and ‘Power’ makes the full 136 PS (134 HP / 100 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) available for optimum performance. In the latter mode, it has a towing capacity of up to 750 kg (1,653 lbs). Two regenerative braking modes are also available, named the ‘Moderate’ and ‘Increased’.

Available in Standard (4.4 m / 173 in) and Long (4.75 m / 187 in) variants, with a 1.90-meter (75 in) height and a 10.8-meter (35ft 5in) turning radius, Peugeot’s electric MPV has a boot space ranging from 775 liters (27.4 cu-ft) for the five-seater Standard to 4,000 liters (141.3 cu-ft) with the seats folded down in the Long.

It features an ‘e-Rifter’ monogram at the back, a charging port on the left rear fender, and sits on 16-inch aluminum wheels on the Allure Premium spec, or 17-inch aluminum rims on the GT, which also features distinctive styling elements and individual rear seats.

Other highlights include Peugeot’s i-Cockpit, an 8-inch touchscreen display, smartphone integration, reversing camera and a host of driver assistance gear, such as the lane departure warning, automatic collision alert, automatic emergency braking, speed sign recognition and recommendation, blind spot monitoring, trailer stability control and hill start assist.

頂級性能品牌 Porsche 自從發表 SUV 與轎跑等車型後,全球銷售表現突飛猛進,尤其是中國消費者最為捧場,外界也盛傳品牌將在中國設廠製造,不僅降低成本,還可以創造更多銷量,但針對這項傳聞,Porsche 的回答卻是「NO」。

為何 Porsche 不在中國設廠,執行長 Oliver Blume 公開回答。

針對在中國設廠一事,Porsche 執行長 Oliver Blume 回答,之所以 Porsche 不願意在中國設廠,主要原因就是「德國製造」的金字招牌對消費者的吸引力太大,對於中國消費者來說,這意味著高品質與頂尖工藝保證。

另外先前 Porsche 中國總裁也指出,不是所有嘗試中國製造的豪華汽車品牌都那麼成功,因為涉及到的生產品質問題是無法控制的,所以不在中國生產,是一個明智之舉。

德國製造代表的高品質與頂尖工藝,是吸引消費者的一大因素。

不過 Porsche 並非所有產線都設在德國,像是 Cayenne 的工廠就位於斯洛伐克,而 Cayman 及 Boxster 也曾有過芬蘭製造的經驗,同時執行長 Oliver Blume 也表示,若中國市場的占比繼續增高,不排除會試著在中國設廠。

同時執行長 Oliver Blume 強調,現階段品牌重心放在電動車方面,其中首款電動車 Taycan 推出後短短一年多,已經在全球銷售超過 2 萬輛,接下來還有旅行車版本的 Taycan Cross Turismo 以及純電版 Macan。
