The Lamborghini Urus has delivered record profits for the Italian exotic manufacturer, which just goes to show that SUVs from automakers like itself are a necessary evil. Now, a report suggests that the Urus will switch to a plug-in hybrid setup in late 2024, with all other engine options being dropped completely.


Company head Stephen Winkelmann told Autocar that this is part of a two-pronged plan in which the facelifted Urus will become a plug-in hybrid only, until a redesigned model is released in 2029 with a fully electric powertrain. This will come a year or so after Lamborghini launches its first fully electric model, which is said to be a 2+2 grand tourer with "more ground clearance" than a typical GT.

Fortunately, the plug-in hybrid powertrain will retain the existing twin-turbo V8, except with a hybrid system bolted onto it. Power output will undoubtedly raise beyond the current 641-hp rating, though as a result of the electrified powertrain, the Urus will become heavier than before.


When it arrives in late 2024, the Urus will join the anticipated Huracan successor in becoming part of Lamborghini's evolving model range, and both will signal the company's switch to a hybrid-only lineup. The Revuelto, which will be delivered to its first customers later this year, is powered by a hybrid V12. A fully electric supercar is not planned for the near future, as the EV replacements for the Revuelto and the Huracan successor won't arrive until after 2030.
