- The company has said it will launch the car simultaneously with its global debut in India.
Popular super luxury car maker Automobili Lamborghini is reportedly working on launching its first hybrid car in India next year. The company has yet to launch an electric car in the country, at a time when Mercedes Benz has revealed its plans to launch three electric cars in the country this year.
According to an
report by ETAuto, the Italian automaker plans to launch its first hybrid car in India as part of the company’s global electrification strategy.
Lamborghini has said it will launch the country’s upcoming hybrid car in India at the same time as it launches globally.
“Whenever a new car is introduced to the global market, we always try to see how quickly we can get it to customers in India. This strategy has been a key pillar of our growth in the country. Globally, Lamborghini will introduce a hybrid car in 2023, and India will also get its first hybrid next year,” Sharad Agarwal, head of operations at Lamborghini India, told ETAuto.
Interestingly, Lamborghini has not yet launched an all-electric car. The company has claimed it will launch its electric car before 2030 and the Indian launch will be at the same time as the global launch. The company is expected to unveil the electric car in 2028.
“Lamborghini’s electric car will be launched in India before 2030. We will not wait 2-3 years to bring a car to market,” Agarwal added.
Lamborghini launched the ultra-luxurious 2022 Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica in India yesterday with a starting price of ₹4.04 crore. The company had unveiled the car worldwide in April.
Mercedes-Benz recently launched the AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ electric sedan in India with a price tag of ₹ 2.45 crore and announced that it will launch two more cars this year. The company also expects EVs to make up 25% of its sales by 2027. Other players in the luxury EV segment include BMW and Audi, which have launched their own electric cars.
While BMW offers cars like the iX SUV and i4 sedan, Audi offers cars like the e-tron 50, e-tron 55 and more. The companies are expected to introduce more cars in the coming days as EV adoption increases.
