Huracan’s replacement to be a plug-in hybrid says Lamborghini

Huracan’s replacement to be a plug-in hybrid says Lamborghini

Lamborghini until now has been making the truest supercars by ‘only’ using naturally aspirated mental V10’s and V12’s and they have been lauded by enthusiasts for that. But we all know it was only a matter of time before the Italian Bull would bow out before the upcoming electric revolution.

According to Stefano Domenicali, head of Lamborghini the next Huracan is the car chosen for hybridization and they will not opt to go fully electric. Lamborghini says, there is still a lot of potential for the V12 and the right approach for them would be to be ready to switch to hybridization for the V10 and the V12 in the future.

However, it’s clear that the replacement for the Aventador, due before the Huracan’s successor, will stick with a naturally aspirated V12 engine putting out a lot of horsepower. Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini’s head of research and development, describes the central problem of developing a plug-in hybrid supercar as being a question of range – not so much on the road necessarily, but ensuring maximum performance is available for more than a few laps on a track.

Although Lamborghini will adapt technology from elsewhere in the Volkswagen empire for its Urus plug-in hybrid crossover, Reggiani says fulfilling the “Lamborghini super-sports car mission” will see the company lean on its external partnerships, including one signed last year with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
