Porsche Macan launch, sold out at a crore a piece in India

Porsche Macan

Porsche’s compact SUV Macan is now available in India, but not quite. While, you’ll soon start seeing a few beauties driving down the road, if one was looking at buying, it would take a wee bit longer as all cars allotted for India are sold out.

Porsche MacanThe situation is the same globally as the compact SUV has been fully booked for 2014 across markets. Porsche India launched 2 Macan variants, Macan S Diesel at a price of Rs 1 crore and Macan Turbo petrol for Rs 1.11 crore, (ex-showroom Delhi). Macan Turbo goes from 0 to 100 in 4.8 seconds, and Macan S Diesel in 6.1 seconds.

The compact SUV is an all new terrain for Porsche and as has been seen globally, even in India, Macan helps increase company outreach to include new customer segments. While Porsche intends to invite new customers into its fold, exclusivity remains top priority, and not volumes.

Porsche Macan As such, demand will outdo supply. Since the days of importing Porsche’s to it being sold here,  there are about 2,000 Porsche vehicles on Indian roads. 

Porsche Macan Not surprisingly, women buyers have shown keen interest in Macan.  Porsche 911 Targa, Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS launch will be scheduled within 6 months.
