Lamborghini’s strategies to develop an SUV, nor that vehicle’s powertrain offerings, haven’t been a trick, however the model’s precise power output wasn’t understood until now. In an interview with Automotive News Europe, Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali informed that the standard Urus will produce 650 hp from a twin-turbo V-8.
Lamborghini hopes the unique SUV will assist it over double its yearly sales. In 2016, the automaker sold a record 3,457 units. Automaker prepares to develop 1,000 Lamborghini Urus SUVs next year and increase to 3,500 units yearly by 2019. However that number could grow if demand is strong enough, Domenicali stated. The SUV will debut later this year, as per AN, and will be developed at Lamborghini’s factory located in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy.
We’ve known for sometime that the Urus would be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8, which a plug-in hybrid version would come later on. As per Domenicali, we’ll see the hybrid Urus a year after the basic model gets here. AN states the Urus will go on sale in Europe by the second quarter of next year, with a U.S. market launch following in the third quarter. The Lamborghini Urus will ride on Volkswagen Group’s modular MLB platform, shared with the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga.
U.S. prices for the Urus might start at around $200,000. The on-sale date for the production Urus hasn’t been revealed yet, once it is you can anticipate a line of well-to-do prospective purchasers to form. Both the Huracan and Aventador have long waiting lists, and delivery can take six months to a year after ordering the Lamborghini.
