CEO Stephan Winkelmann has revealed details of Lamborghini's future, confirming a plug-in Aventador replacement with a new V-12 and an electric second-generation Urus The second-generation Urus, due in 2029, will be all-electric. CEO Stephan Winkelmann revealed that detail, but didn’t specify whether it will overlap with the upcoming hybridized Urus at all. The Urus EV will be Lamborghini’s second electric car after the 2+2 GT car currently being planned.
While Ferrari is already building two series production hybrid supercars — the plug-in SF90 Stradale and its baby brother, the 296GTB — Lamborghini has made just one electrified model, the limited-production Sián. But that is soon to change, with Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann revealing the Italian supercar maker's path toward an electric future in a recent interview. Before Lamborghini's electrified onslaught begins, however, the last Lamborghinis with a gas-only powertrain will arrive this year. Winkelmann confirmed two new variants of the Huracán and two versions of the Urus SUV as part of a mid-cycle facelift. The first new Huracán model is expected to be the Sterrato, a rally-style off-road supercar first shown as a concept back in 2019. The second Huracán derivative will be a subtler take on the garish high-performance STO (think Porsche 911 GT3 Touring), possibly called JV Stradale. The updated Urus has already been spotted testing and is likely to add a high-performance model.
Plug-In Hybrids Coming, Plus a New Engine
Then 2023 will mark the start of Lamborghini’s electrification plans, with Winkelmann revealing that the Aventador replacement will arrive that year sporting a plug-in-hybrid setup with a new V-12 engine. This will be Lamborghini's first plug-in model, and it will quickly be followed by two more, Urus and Huracán, in 2024. The Urus will use a V-8, but Winkelmann remained tight-lipped about what will power the plug-in Huracán, only saying that it will have a "completely new engine."
According to Lamborghini, it will be a V-8, but unlike the unit found in the Urus, it will be developed by itself and not shared with Audi or Porsche. The company claims the V-8 will have a 10,000-rpm redline and will be able to run on synthetic fuels, with the hybrid system generating an approximate total of 850 horsepower. Further down the line, Lamborghini is preparing a fully electric grand tourer. Lamborghini's first EV is still in its early planning phase, with the company testing electric rivals and working out the details of what the car will need to be competitive. While it may be a while until we see Lamborghini's EV debut, the Italian automaker has plenty of exciting models to keep us sated in the meantime.
