Lamborghini has quite high expectations from Urus and hope to intensify the yearly sale by 100% once Lamborghini Urus is launched. The firm is expecting to sell approximately 3000 units of this SUV across the world. The one reason that caught Lamborghini’s eyes on SUV segment is that it wishes to make use of the new SUV platform that has been developed by Volkswagen. To make its SUV lighter, the firm will use carbon fibre architecture throughout the car.
