In 2021, Lamborghini sold more cars in Thailand than India. But that may change
Lamborghini had a fantastic 2021, a year that saw the sportscar maker sell a record 8,405 cars delivered globally. While the Chinese mainland and the United States remain key markets, the contribution of the Asia-Pacific region as a whole was significant as well with 2,249 cars delivered all across here. India may have a tiny share in this but the market here is looking at more widespread supercar adoption.
Through the course of 2021, Lamborghini delivered 69 units to customers in India. This is up by 86% when compared to figures from 2020. In the overall schematics, the number may still be small - Lamborghini sold 354 cars in South Korea and 75 cars in Thailand - but there is a clear shift afoot.

The road ahead for the overall passenger vehicle segment remains fraught with challenges galore but Lamborghini could be looking at another strong year across the world, and India included.
