Automobili Lamborghini is reportedly planning to launch a hybrid car next year in India, and Mercedes Benz already has three electric cars scheduled for release over the course of this year.
A report by ETAuto indicates that the Italian car-maker is planning on launching its first hybrid car to markets in India in response to its global strategy of using alternative energy.
Lamborghini has confirmed that it will be launching its upcoming hybrid car in India along with the rest of the world.
Lamborghini India says it has been striving to bring cars to the Indian market as quickly as possible. The CEO added by saying that this strategy of bringing new models to countries early on is a key component of their success.
A milestone event is happening soon in the automotive industry: Lamborghini hasn’t yet released a powerful, mainstream electric car. The company has claimed they will release an electric variant before 2030 and the Indian launch will correspond with the global launch. By 2028, it’s expected that a fully electric Lamborghini model may be unveiled.
“We will not wait two to three years before we launch a car in India. We plan on releasing the electric car from Lamborghini by 2030,” said Agarwal.
Luxury car company Lamborghini unveiled the ultra-luxury 2022 model of the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica yesterday in India with an estimated starting price of Rs.4.04 crore. The car was unveiled globally in April.
Mercedes-Benz launched the AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ at a price tag of ₹2.45 crore and has since announced that it will release two more cars this year. The company also expects 25% of its sales to come from electric vehicles by 2027. BMW and Audi have their own offerings in the $50,000-$75,000 range, which are fairly similar in features.
As EV adoption increases, automakers like Audi and BMW are also expanding their product lineups by introducing the e-tron 50, e-tron 55, i4 sedan and more.
