The incredible escalation of Super SUVs

by admin

ROME – In the last twenty years the sales share of Sport utilities has increased from 11 to 42 percent of the global market and in the process, interest has also grown in Super SUVs; a growing niche that in terms of requests has practically supplanted the most performing station wagons, developed by the sports divisions of the premium brands.

The change of course is striking because the most spacious and high-performance Super SUVs have price lists that from just under 100,000 euros can easily reach 500,000 and despite the dynamic and conceptual oxymoron of an off-road model “loaned” to high speed, the category created a drift from golden cash flows. The case of the extra-luxury sector is the most illustrative of the trend. In fact, the Cullinan represents half of Rolls Royce sales, the epic Urus V8 has allowed Lamborghini to more than double production, the Aston Martin Dbx is the new best-seller of the English house (55 percent of the total in 2021) and sales of the Bentley Bentayga, also available with hybrid propulsion, have exceeded the wildest expectations of the Crewe-based manufacturer reaching 38 percent. Attention to the phenomenon is destined to increase with the arrival of the Ferrari Purosangue scheduled for 2022 while Porsche has long since investigated the various nuances of the trend, and raised the bar with the 640 horsepower Cayenne Turbo Gt and price lists. 203,000 euros.

Under the incidence on turnover in 2020, SUVs accounted for 56 per cent of sales for Maserati, 71 per cent for Volvo, 50 per cent for Alfa Romeo (which has a product with exceptional driveability in the Stelvio Quadrifoglio) and 45 per cent. per cent for Audi and Bmw which, as regards the Sport utility category, put the RSQ8 on the road respectively with 305 hours of maximum speed, and the X5M and X6M with 625Cv and 280km / h.

The SUV sales share in the Land Rover world is obviously 100 percent plus 66 percent deriving from Jaguar models. In the field of Super Sport utility, the English house offers a long series of amusing interpretations on the theme: The most recent are the granite Defender with V8 engine and the various SVR configurations for the Range Rovers seen in action in the latest James Bond. The same abbreviation SVR is also applied on the Jaguar F-Pace and in the latter car, the performance upgrade comes from the 5.0 V8 Supercharged with 550 horsepower and 700nm of torque, for a time of 4 seconds in 0-100 and prices from 108,000. EUR. The collection of raised drive cars continues with the Mercedes SUVs prepared by Amg as the G-Class or Gle 63S Coupè with 612 horsepower while in terms of power, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Dodge Durango Srt Hellcat both sport more than 700 horsepower. The Sport Utility currently most performing for engine numbers and acceleration speed is the Tesla Model X Plaid from 120,000 euros where the three electric motors generate 1020 horsepower to sprint from 0-100 in just 2.6 seconds.
