The Lamborghini Urus SUV might be produced outside Italy once it will be ready for the market, in 2017.
“The raging bull” has some big plans for its future and one of the biggest ones is involving its upcoming SUV. Lamborghini would like to see the Urus into production but the fact it that the model hasn’t been yet approved by the Volkswagen Group. In a recent interview with Car Advice, the company’s CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, said that the Urus might be produced outside Italy because there might not be enough capacity at the Sant’Agata Bolognese facility.
Rumor has it that the Urus might be assembled in Slovakia, along with the Audi Q7, the Porsche Cayenne and the Volkswagen Touareg, and also along the upcoming Bentley SUV, which will be called the Bentayga, apparently. This hasn’t been confirmed yet but there is nothing to confirm as the Urus still hasn’t been green lighted for production and it remains currently a simple concept vehicle, the EXP 9 F, shown in Beijing, a couple of years ago. The Urus might double Lamborghini’s sales and still remain an exclusive vehicle, in Winkelmann’s vision. If the SUV will be approved, than it should hit the production line in 2017.
