The new Lamborghini Urus will get a plug-in hybrid version
The arrival of the Urus Super-SUV was greeted by the world with a mixture of amazement and fury in equal measure. Now according to Auto Express, this amazement and fury could continue with the news that a plug-in hybrid version of Lamborghini’s new Super-SUV will arrive in the near future.
Power would come from the same V8 hybrid powerplant found in the current Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. In the big Porsche, this setup is good for 671bhp. By the time it makes it to the Urus though, it will produce around 700bhp with 850Nm of torque which sounds like a whole ton of torque laden fun to us.
This information comes directly from the Lamborghini employee’s at the Urus launch. With the speculation that the additional torque from the petrol/electric setup could cut a good half a second or so from the already swift 3.6-second 0-62mph dash. This could mean a very big and very tall SUV with a standing to 62mph time of around 3.0 seconds, which is supercar quick.
Any plug-in hybrid version would boast a dramatically lower CO2 rating with a sub 100g/km output meaning you could drive your Lamborghini Super-SUV into the city centre of your choosing without paying any kind of toxicity charge. It could also be capable of around 30 miles of electric driving based on the Panamera’s current specs, although expect this to be reduced in real-world driving.
