The Lamborghini Urus crossover has been spied twice this week.

The overall design of the production Urus seems to stay true the shape and overall shape of the original concept car. The production vehicle looks like it will feature larger headlight units, a drastically different front fascia design, and a deeper rear bumper setup.
Earlier this week, Stefano Domenicali, Lamborghini’s CEO, sat down for an interview with Digital Trends and confirmed a few details about the upcoming crossover.
Firstly, the company is “for sure” sticking with the Urus name that graced the concept car back in 2012.
Secondly, production of the Urus will begin in April this year. Given that the company is entering a new market segment and has only recently upgraded its Sant’Agata Bolognese factory, early output will all be “pre-series models” to train not only line workers, but also dealers and the after-sales network.
Domenicali also said that the Urus is designed to go off-road, and will have selectable modes geared for “ice, snow, stones, and sand”.
The crossover will also be the first Lamborghini hybrid. Slated to be the Urus’ second drivetrain offering, Domenicali didn’t give a timeframe for the Urus hybrid’s availability.
Once production is up to full speed, the company predicts that it will make around 3500 Urus crossovers annually, with output of the Huracan and Aventador sports cars also limited to a total of 3500 per annum.
Although the Urus will make its debut and go into production this year, we probably won’t see the crossover enter local showrooms until some time in 2018.
