“The Urus is the right Lamborghini for India. It is expanding the market by bringing in customers from premium sedans and premium SUVs," said Sharad Agarwal, Head of Automobili Lamborghini’s local unit

Lamborghini is betting its first sport utility vehicle Urus that will help open the door to more customers in India, a market that accounted for less than 1 per cent of its global deliveries last year.

After selling fewer than 30 cars in the South Asian country in 2017, the Italian maker of supercars is aiming to triple the number in two years, Sharad Agarwal, head of Automobili Lamborghini SpA’s local unit, said in an interview. In comparison, the company sold 265 units in the Greater China region.

The Urus “is the right Lamborghini for India," Agarwal said in Mumbai. “It is expanding the market by bringing in customers from premium sedans and premium SUVs."

Lamborghini is among sportscar makers introducing SUVs to appeal to a wider group of customers who prefer more space and a higher suspension. Poor quality roads in developing countries such as India make it virtually impossible to drive fast cars like the Aventador or the Huracan. Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce, Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz’s Maybach sub-brand also have plans for SUVs.

Owned by the Volkswagen Group, Lamborghini is targeting India's wealthy from technology entrepreneurs to Bollywood stars.

There were 119 billionaires and about 20,700 individuals with net assets of $10 million or more in the country as of last year, according to a report by New World Wealth.

The Urus, which started deliveries this year, accounted for 68 per cent of the registrations by first-time Lamborghini buyers in India, Agarwal said without elaborating. The showroom price of Rs 31 million ($418,000) compares with an estimated $200,000 in the US and 3 million yuan ($433,500) in China.
