Lamborghini confirms its supercar successors will be plug-in hybrids

Lamborghini confirms its supercar successors will be plug-in hybrids

We had already written about Lamborghini going green in the future over here and now we have it coming straight from the horses, rather the bull’s mouth.  With electrification being the only way to go with large engines, Lamborghini had to take the leap to keep those V10’s and V12’s going.

According to CEO, Stefano Domenicali Lamborghini won’t be concentrating on mild hybrid set-ups and instead will use plug-in hybrid technology, meaning some electric range will be possible.  While thats one way to solve one problem, the other problem is weight which the automaker's R&D chief Maurizio Reggiani is well aware of.
But given the rapid advancements being made in battery technology, weight may not be as big as an issue as we saw in the first generation of plug-in hybrid supercars, like the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. In fact, Domenicali also revealed that Lamborghini is exploring solid state batteries, which promise to be much lighter than lithium-ion batteries yet capable of holding more charge.

As for what comes after plug-in hybrids, Lamborghini has already given a taste with 2017's Terzo Millennio electric supercar concept, which Domenicali said could potentially be ready for production, technology-wisenby around 2026. But according to Domenicali, Lamborghini is also exploring the potential of hydrogen-powered supercars.
