Lamborghini confirms the Urus for 2018, upgrades factory
It seems that with the recent buzz in activity, what with Bentley and Rolls-Royce pushing their concepts for their own takes on sport utility vehicles, Lamborghini has decided to push forward with their plans for the Urus.
The Urus concept was displayed back in 2012 as a little bit of a pipe dream for Lamborghini, a market test in a sense. But with the growing demand for luxury SUVs, it may be just what Lamborghini needs to supplement their existing supercar duo- the Huracan and the Aventador.
Production of the new Lamborghini SUV in Sant’Agata Bolognese will see significant development of the factory site, increasing from the current 80,000 square meters to an area covering ca. 150,000 square meters. The project will include the construction of new facilities, such as a new production line, warehousing and enlargement of the R&D department.
The addition of a third model line will also provide important opportunities for the supplier network in Italy and internationally, and have a strong impact on human resources: Lamborghini intends to hire 500 new employees.
