The Lamborghini Urus, Lamborghini first SUV in a very long time, has been confirmed to produce 650 horsepower.
The production model of the Urus has yet to be revealed (it will debut by the end of 2017), but we also know that those horses will come from a V8 twin-turbocharged engine.
Slated to go on sale first in Europe in the second quarter of 2018, the Urus will cost around 200,000 euros. Sales in the United States will follow in the third quarter of 2018 with a price tag of below $200,000 before taking in to account the gas guzzler tax.
Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali told in an interview that the Urus lineup will be joined by a plug-in hybrid version a year after the standard model goes on sale. In other words, sometime in 2019.
The company will build 1,000 units of the super SUV in 2018 (alongside the Huracan and Aventador supercars) and 3,500 annually starting in 2019, though production could grow if demand is higher.
Lamborghini sold about 3,500 supercars in 2016, so the Urus is expected to double its overall sales volume.
