The first time that we hear about a plug-in hybrid in the brand of Sant ‘ Agata was the Lamborghini Asterion. It was a prototype presented at the Paris Salon 2014, and that combined the motor V10 naturally aspirated 5.2-liter Hurricane with three electric motors. It seems that this project was in the air, but not this type of technology. Everything points to the Lamborghini Urus will be the first plug-in hybrid of the brand.
Maurizio Reggiani, responsible for R & D of the brand, has recently confirmed that they are working on it. The Urus is doing to pray, but it will be a milestone for Lamborghini. The first SUV of the brand, the first plug-in hybrid, and it could also be the first with a turbocharged engine. Apparently the most logical choice would be to use a engine V8 biturbo 4.0-liter to generate the torque needed to move the SUV.
Although getting a higher torque motor would be easier in a diesel engine, that is something that was ruled out some time ago by the own Stefano Domenicali. In any case, the Lamborghini Urus is still in the development phase and “will be much better on the inside and outside” that the prototype presented in 2012. It seems that the design will be updated, and that its weight and aerodynamics will be two key aspects in this model.
it Seems that the brand of Sant’agata has been finished yielding to the currents current and leaving a little bit of his essence. Although it is expected that the other models do not have variants hybrid and to remain as up to now with their naturally aspirated engines. The Lamborghini Urus is expected to hit for the year 2018, but it is not yet clear whether the hybrid version plug-in you will arrive at launch or later.
