NEXT- GEN HU­RACÁN TOUTED TO BE A PLUG-IN HY­BRID

National Post (Latest Edition) - - POST DRIVING - Stanislav Nachev, Driv­ing. ca

For 2022, the re­place­ment for the next Lam­borgh­ini Hu­racán will be a plug-in hy­brid. Ac­cord­ing to Au­to­car, Lam­borgh­ini is work­ing on bat­tery tech­nol­ogy that will be light­weight and al­low for elec­tric-only mode. Lam­borgh­ini has been hes­i­tant to adopt hy­brid tech­nol­ogy be­cause of lack of per­for­mance and cus­tomer de­mand. How­ever, the au­tomaker has re­cently teamed up with MIT to im­prove bat­tery tech­nol­ogy. The new Aven­ta­dor will keep its V12 en­gine, while the Hu­racán’s even­tual re­place­ment will be Lam­borgh­ini’s first plug-in hy­brid sports car. In ad­di­tion, the Urus SUV will launch with a hy­brid pow­er­train later this year. While there are no de­tails on the hy­brid pow­er­train, we can rest as­sured that, per Lam­borgh­ini boss Ste­fano Domeni­cali, “there is still a lot of po­ten­tial for the V12.”
