Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann says the automaker will decide in coming months whether to expand into all-terrain sports utility vehicles. The company needs to consider the impact of higher SUV volumes on its facilities and where to invest its resources during an economic crisis, he says. Lamborghini, owned by German carmaker Volkswagen, presented a concept SUV, the Urus, in April with an eye on a 2017 launch. If it went ahead, the carmaker expects to produce 3,000 SUVs a year, beyond the 2,000 sports cars it already builds. Winkelmann says the natural markets for SUVs would be North America, the Middle East, and Asia as well as Britain, Germany, and Russia.
