It seems that production of the Lamborghini Urus SUV is still not a sure thing.
The new SUV was rumored to make its debut in 2017, but it is still waiting on the official green light from Audi. A source within Lamborghini told Autocar that the decision needs to be financially sound before the final green light can be given and current unrest around the world is prolonging the process.
“We are convinced the Urus can significantly boost global sales, but the financial conditions need to be sound,” said the source, who wished to remain anonymous. “Right now, there are signs we may be heading for a downturn in the markets due to various factors, including trouble in the Middle East, although this is not reflected in the current sales situation, which puts us ahead of 2013.”
