Those who have put off making a deposit on a Lamborghini with a complete combustion engine for this long have wasted their time. The Italian company, established in 1963 to compete with Ferrari, provided its devotees with V8s, V10s, and V12 gasoline-powered engines for 60 years.
But as of right now, it’s official: Huracan and Urus order books are closed. This week, Volkswagen subsidiary CEO Stephan Winkelmann told the German publication WELT that all ICE models have been sold out through the conclusion of their production cycle.
From the next year to the end of the decade, only hybrid and electric vehicles will be produced. The 2023 Huracan with its 631 horsepower V-10 starts at about $210,000.
Lamborghini has invested “at least 1.8 billion Euros,” or nearly $2 billion, in order to build a portfolio of hybrid automobiles ready for sale in late 2024 and early 2025. The Revuelto, the company’s next hybrid model, combines a V12 engine with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
According to Winkelmann, the company plans to deliver a fully electric vehicle “by the end of the decade.” Lamborghini delivered 9233 automobiles worldwide in 2022, up from 8420 the previous year.
