In 2025, Lamborghini will undergo a major transformation by dropping their gas-only model and only offering a PHEV lineup for the Urus. The brand introduced its first hybrid vehicle, the Revuelto, this year, and now the Urus will follow suit. The Urus will switch to a PHEV-only power train by the end of 2024.
The current Urus model delivers 657 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, and the PHEV version might increase those figures to about 830 hp and 660 lb-ft. However, the additional weight of the hybrid components may offset some of the performance gains.
The successor to the Lamborghini Huracan is expected to debut before the PHEV Urus and will use an adapted version of the Urus engine. Lamborghini plans to release vital details about the new coupe around next spring. The brand’s future direction includes a high-riding battery-electric 2+2 GT with an estimated range of 300 miles, set to debut in 2028.
Despite the work on synthetic fuels by sister brand Porsche, Lamborghini’s CEO remains skeptical of their viability for creating new ICE-powered models. The focus is on adapting to the changing landscape and regulations while preparing for the future of electric mobility.
