The Replacement for the Huracàn will be a Hybrid

Lamborghini confirmed the next generation of the Huracàn will be powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

With the meteoric rise of electric propulsion in the exotic segment, older car brands must consider replacing their thermal powertrains. Recently, Lamborghini confirmed that its last gasoline-only model will be a higher version of the current Huracán, which will be called the Sterrato when it is introduced later this month in a few weeks.

This means that the next part of the Lamborghini story will be written with electrification in mind. In other words, the next Huracán will be a hybrid. Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann spoke to the British publication Auto Express about this, mentioning in passing that the new hybrid system would be grafted onto a new engine developed by the brand. The Sant’Agata division’s technology director, Rouven Mohr, has already confirmed that the next “affordable” supercar will be equipped with more than six cylinders and less than twelve, a sentence that almost confirms the return of the V10 as the main heart of the next entry-level sports car.

However, we know that the retirement of Audi’s cousin the R8 means that the Huracán’s replacement will be closely linked to the Aventador’s replacement. In fact, Stephan Winkelmann has indicated that the next Huracàn will not be a range-extending hybrid and that there will be no form of downsizing, which suggests the return of the 5.2-litre V10, or a heavily revised V10 at least.

But, at the time of writing, we’ll have to be patient with Lamborghini’s strategists, as this future entry-level sports car is only expected somewhere in 2024. The brand’s aficionados will be rather satisfied with the Aventador’s replacement, which will be unveiled before then.

What is clear from the Italian brand’s side is that electrification will likely be integrated more quickly into future Lamborghini utility vehicles.
