Fans rush to buy Lamborghinis before electrification

Automotive News Europe
reports that Lamborghini saw a 13% increase in global sales last year, with a spike after the company announced its plans to go electric.
And according to CEO Stephan Winkelmann, the automaker has almost sold its entire production run for 2022, less than a month into the year!

Lamborghini Countach
—derided by critics as a cash grab—sold out within three days of its unveiling.

Lamborghini is confident they can overcome these hurdles by investing heavily in new tech. In fact, it has allocated $1.7 billion for the shift to plug-in hybrids, and will spend even more on its first full-electric model.
In terms of what we can expect from an electric Lambo, the company has said it will be a four-door model, suitable for daily use.
