Despite Italy generally opposing an EU plan for carbon neutrality by 2035, one of its best-known carmakers is pushing ahead with its electrification plans. Lamborghini CEO Stefan Winkelmann recently confirmed two upcoming hybrid models and laid out a road map for its first two EVs.
Lamborghini hybrid on the way
Last Friday, during a presentation in Sant’Agata, Italy, Winkelmann told reporters that the Huracan’s successor would arrive in late 2024, and that it would be a plug-in hybrid. This news comes courtesy of our sister publication, road and trackWho also pointed out that Winkelmann said that the Urus SUV will switch to a hybrid powertrain in 2024.
“And then we will model the Urus as a hybrid in 2024,” Winkelmann told reporters. “And the all-new Huracan will hit the market in late ’24.”
A spokesperson for Lamborghini confirmed this today car and driver Both the statements of Winkelmann are true.
Lambo’s first EV is coming too
We know that Winkelmann is bullish on EVs in 2021 from the time we spoke to him in person. R&T Also in line with what they said then was that Lamborghini announced plans to electrify every vehicle in its portfolio by the end of 2024.
What we learned today – from both R&T Lamborghini has official plans for its first two electric models — through reports and direct confirmation from a company spokesperson.
Winkelmann reportedly said, “In ’28 and ’29 we’ll have our first two BEVs.” “It will be the first car to be a fully BEV car in 2028. And then there will be the new Urus in 2029.”
Simply put, Lamborghini’s first EV will be an undisclosed car that will arrive in 2028. Its second EV will be the fully electric successor to the current Urus, and it will arrive in 2029.
Lamborghini’s first hybrid not a Rodeo
We should note that when Lamborghini reveals a plug-in-hybrid replacement for the Aventador, it won’t be the company’s first hybrid rodeo. We recently learned the Aventador’s successor (referred to with the internal code LB744) will be powered by a hybrid V-12 that generates up to 1001 horsepower. There are three electric motors, two of which are up front, and integrated with a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Lamborghini is also diving into motorsports in 2024 with a commitment to LMDH Racing as it prepares for a hybrid future. Back in 2021, Lamborghini sold a very limited number of the 808-hp V-12 hybrid crossover Sián based on the Aventador.
Hopefully, the Italian brand has made some progress in hybrid technology since then, as the Scion matched the Aventador’s EPA-rated city and combined mpg, while registering an mpg worse (14 vs. 15) in its highway numbers. Not great, Roberto.
