Lamborghini announced that from next year all the vehicles it will present will have electric motors, starting with hybrids and plug-in hybrids.
The information was delivered by the executive director of the car manufacturer, Stephan Winkelmann, in an interview with the site Coach.
“By 2025 we will offer only hybrid cars in our lineup. This is to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 50 percent,” he said in the interview.
Winkelmann also anticipated that the first fully electric vehicle could be a four-door for daily use, which should be launched in the second half of this decade.
The last gasoline
As part of this ambitious plan, Lamborghini announced that this year it will launch four new vehicles, which will be the last to use gasoline engines without electric assistance.
According to the executive director, the cars that will be presented in 2022 will be two new variants of the Huracán and two versions of the SUV Urus.
The first new Huracán model will be the Sterrato, a rally-style off-road supercar that was first shown as a concept in 2019.
It is also believed that the second Huracán derivative may be a more subtle version of the high-performance STO, possibly called the JV Stradale.
The strategy puts the Italian carmaker behind Ferrari, which has already launched three hybrid models and has promised to have a battery electric vehicle by 2025.
In any case, this recent announcement constitutes an important step for one of the most prestigious vehicle manufacturers in the world and which has also decided to join electric mobility.
