Lamborghini Is All Set To Electrify Its Range From 2023
Lamborghini EV From 2023 – Lamborghini is set to provide electric assistance to the Urus, new Aventador, and Huracan. Lamborghini is planning to gradually electrify its vehicle lineup in order to show a greener face of the company. The initial phase will be hybrid powertrains, with plug-in hybrids leading the way.
No electric vehicle until the end of the decade
CEO Stephan Winkelmann, who has returned to head the company after a lengthy absence, stated that this will significantly lower emissions. “Hybridization will reduce CO2 emissions by at least 50% by 2025, but we must also keep the promise of performance increases.” CEO states. Lamborghini will not produce a fully electric vehicle until the end of the decade, around 2028 and also according to Stephan Winkelmann, the new Aventador will have a new V12 which is expected to compensate for the relative loss in torque by employing electric boost, which is likely to be modestly smaller in capacity but higher revving.
The new automobile will be powered by a plug-in hybrid system with an electric-only mode. However, instead of the energy-retarding super-capacitors which were seen in the limited-edition Countach LPI 800-4, this vehicle will employ standard Lithium-ion batteries. The main difference is that ordinary batteries can store energy for a longer period of time.
Lamborghini Urus hybrid will follow soon
Coming to the Urus SUV, which was Lamborghini’s best-seller, it is set to be redesigned next year. The EVO, as it is expected to be dubbed, will be lighter and more powerful, with torque output approaching 900Nm. Sharper features on the nose and a more solid appearance at the rear are slated to be added to the exterior. Following closely behind will be a hybrid variant, which Lamborghini claims will be both greener and quicker. The power unit is expected to be an upgraded and more powerful version of the engine-motor combination that powers the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, and it might offer close to 700 hp and 40km of electric driving range
Hybrid vehicles by 2025
Lamborghini will solely offer hybrid vehicles in its lineup by 2025. While specifics on the new Huracan’s power plant are few, the business might stick with the V10 or choose for the ‘greener’ twin-turbo V8, the latter of which is shared by several VW-Audi group companies. Audi has already discontinued the use of the V10. The plug-in hybrid system, as seen on the Aventador, will provide an electric-only range and may even include an electric-only front axle.
Electric vehicle expected in 2028
Lamborghini’s fourth model will be completely electric. According to Winkelmann, the first electric vehicle will be more adaptable than Lamborghini’s super sports cars. It is anticipated to have level-four autonomous driving to make it more useful for city driving, as well as being space efficient. Of course, handling the weight of the batteries will be an issue. Lamborghini is also working on making its all-electric vehicle a distinct sound. It’s likely to be a distinct sound but is capable of adding a lot of character to the automobile anyway.
Electrification and pure electrics will be a challenge for Lamborghini, but with VW-Audi investing heavily in cutting-edge technology, the Italian supercar manufacturer may be on the path to a future in which the innate character and performance of its cars remain relatively intact.
