As the coronavirus pandemic eases in most parts of the world and people can't wait to make a splash, Lamborghini has said it has already sold out 10 months’ worth of production capacity.
The Italian supercar manufacturer had shut down production in 2020 due to the pandemic and despite that the year proved to be Lamborghini’s second-best ever. The yea 2021, too, is set for strong growth, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has said.
According to a Bloomberg report, the free-spending attitude could be a result of the easing pandemic situation globally. Lamborghini’s deliveries have surged by almost 25 percent during the first quarter, the report said.
Electrification, however, is the name of the game and while enthusiasts continue to pick up gas-guzzling performance cars, most manufacturers are looking to transition towards cleaner mobility.
Lamborghini is part of this list too and is planning investments to the tune of 1.5 billion euros to develop plug-in hybrids by 2024.
“Lamborghini doesn’t want to be the first-mover at all cost. In electrification, we need to choose the right moment, when we think the market is ready and we think we can really be the best,” Winkelmann said.
In India, Lamborghini recently launched the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder
starting at a price of Rs 3.54 crore. This brings the total number of guises available in India up to four, including the AWD Coupe and Spyder and the RWD coupe. Urus SUV and the V12 powered Aventador are also available in the country.
