ICE Lamborghini special days numbered as peeps from Sant’Agata Bolognese will wave goodbye to vehicles equipped with pure combustion engines later this year. It has been confirmed that the replacements for the Huracan and Aventador will be hybrids and the upcoming Urus facelift will also adopt a partially electric powertrain. All three model lines will be hybrids by 2024, but the first EVs will take a while.
In an interview with Autocar Earlier in the year, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann announced that the first EV would come out in 2028 with a 2+2 seating configuration. British magazines speculated at the time it would be a smaller crossover than the Urus. Given its interior layout, it should serve as a spiritual successor to the Urraco, the last 2+2 gran tourer sold by Lambo from 1972 to 1979 with fewer than 800 units produced.
We’ve decided to use our crystal ball and try to see the future of the first Lamborghini that doesn’t use a gasoline engine. The name we chose for this digital design exercise is “Revuelto” as a patent filing with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) from a few months ago suggests the Italian automaker is preparing another model without a bull name.
This edgy crossover style follows the futuristic Terzo Millennio concept and the limited-run Sián FKP 37. Of course, 2028 has a long way to go and a lot could change by then, but we expect this crossover to be going at high speed. special electric car platform. That should translate into short overhangs to maximize wheelbase. However, with Lambo’s head honcho saying it will be a 2+2 rather than an actual four-seater, rear legroom will likely be limited.
A more spacious EV for the whole family will come as the second-generation Urus as around the end of the decade it will drop the twin-turbo V8 engine. Unless synthetic fuels gain traction in the years to come, Lamborghini envisions it will have an all-electric lineup in the early 2030s. Meanwhile, the more violent gas-fueled Urus is just around the corner and will be followed before the end of the year by a Huracan Sterrato equipped with a naturally aspirated V10.
