The rendering makes it look like a cross between the Urus and the Estoque.
An electric version of the Urus will follow afterward.
Many low-volume automakers have said in the recent past that they intended to resist moving away from petrol power to electrons. Despite their misgivings about going electric, their options are limited. Lamborghini has embraced electrification as it prepares to launch its first PHEV next year and its first EV in 2028.
What Lamborghini needs to do is dramatically reduce its fleet-average CO2 emissions. If you read this correctly, nowhere does it say that the internal combustion engine must be phased out immediately. As such, the introduction of electrified powertrains will offset emissions produced by internal combustion engines.
This is why Lambo’s first fully-electric vehicle will be a crossover that, based on Autocar’s rendering, looks like a cross between the 4-door Estoque concept and the popular Urus SUV. Selecting this body type should increase its chances for volume sales. Afterward, Lamborghini will launch an electric version of the Urus by the end of the decade for its second generation.
Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said: “The first step is to launch two fully electric cars by 2030. As a result of that, we have some time to decide whether we can stay with the internal combustion engines or if we have to go fully electric.”
