Porsche AG, its name synonymous with sports cars, is gaining traction in the shift to electric autos.

The Volkswagen AG unit said 60 percent of buyers of its revamped Panamera four-door coupe opted for the partly battery-powered version from its sales start in June through October. The brand is now rolling out the vehicle in China and the U.S., its largest markets. The demand shows electric vehicle sales are starting to take hold as carmakers spend billions to meet tightening emissions regulation.
