Lamborghini planning to investment in Maharashtra to boost e-vehicle plans

Subhash DesaiIconic Italian carmaker Lamborghini is mulling an investment in Maharashtra to aid its electric vehicles plans, a senior official said today. Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation chief executive officer Sanjay Sethi said the world-famous manufacturer of luxury supercars, sports cars and SUVs is planning an investment in the state. “They (Lamborghini) have a basic interest in electric vehicles,” the senior IAS official told PTI here, when asked about the likely presence of Lamborghini chairman Tonino Lamborghini at the ‘Magnetic Maharashtra’ investor summit here next week. The carmaker, which has outlined a slew of global plans on the electric vehicle front, will announce its plans for Maharashtra tomorrow, Sethi said. State Industries Minister Subhash Desai said the carmaker is keen to set up base in Maharashtra. Asked if the state government has indicated any potential location to Lamborghini, Desai replied in the negative, saying it will happen only after talks with them. The government does not know if the company is tying up with a local manufacturer, Desai said. The company sells multiple models in the country, with a base price north of Rs 20 million (Rs 2 crore).
