In 2022, Lamborghini exceeded 2 billion in turnover for the first time in its history, with a 56% increase in operating profit compared to 2021. 2022 turnover was 2.38 billion euros, an increase of 22 % compared to 2021. If compared to 2017, the turnover has more than doubled.
The operating margin reached 25.9%, with an operating result of 614 million euros, or 56% more than the record of 2021. 2022 also represents the fifth consecutive year in which the operating margin recorded numbers in growth, another historic milestone for the company from Sant’Agata Bolognese.
In 2022, the historic record for car deliveries was reached: 9,233, with an increase in all macro-regions of the world. In Asia there was +14%, in America +10% and lastly EMEA +7% compared to 2021. The United States confirmed its first place overall (2721 cars delivered, +10% compared to the previous year), followed by Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong & Macao (1018 cars delivered, +9% vs. 2021), Germany (808 cars delivered, +14% vs. previous year), the United Kingdom (650 cars delivered, +15% compared to the previous year) and from Japan (546 cars delivered, +22% compared to the previous year).
As regards the models, the success of the Super SUV Urus is consolidated (5367 models delivered, +7% compared to 2021), followed by a significant increase of Huracán (3113 models delivered, +20% compared to 2021) and Aventador with 753 delivered models, which reached the end of its production in September 2022.
Despite the findings, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has denied that Lamborghini will go public while announcing an employee bonus. Instead, the presentation by the end of the decade of four new models has been confirmed, one fully electric in 2028: a GT 2+2, “which is currently missing from the range” and which will be built on the same line as the Urus. Lamborghini, Winkelmann said again, is about to launch the ‘Cor Tauri Directorate’ plan worth 2.5-2.6 billion euros on environmental sustainability spread between now and the end of the decade. The new fully electric Urus will also arrive in 2029, which in 2024 will be preceded by the plug-in hybrid version of the current model. As for the 2035 target, when heat engines should be banned, the Sant’Agata company is currently awaiting a definitive decision from the European Union “to decide which horse to bet on”.
From a strictly technical point of view, the problem of the weight of the batteries is under the scrutiny of the Sant’Agata technicians. “The new hybrid Aventador – assures the CEO – will have the best weight/power ratio on the market”. For the rest, concluded Winkelmann, software solutions are being studied that make the car manageable.
