The first electric Lambo? Not anytime soon

Contrary to general automotive industry trends, Lamborghini is in no hurry to electrify its vehicles. Volkswagen's Italian subsidiary wants to have at least a few super sport models with only internal combustion engines in its range beyond 2030. “One of the ways to keep internal combustion engines is thanks to synthetic petrol” said company CEO Stephan Winkelmann in front of the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.


As a matter of fact, apart from E-Fuel, the people of Sant‘Agata Bolognese will bet on partial electrification. Winkelmann reveals that Aventador, Huracan and Urus will initially receive hybrid drives in the coming years. "We believe that our customers will accept the cars – as long as their dynamic performance is better than the previous generation models," added the senior manager of Lamborghini. There will also be a fully electric Lambo – in 2028 at the earliest. Most likely it will be a Gran Tourismo with four seats and a slightly larger ground clearance.


Auto Trendy’s take:

What we are witnessing here is an automotive trend that differs from the general moods within the industry. We, at Auto Trendy, believe that is something to be expected from a company with such unique cars as Lamborghini. Nevertheless, we are certain that Lambo does this in the name of its customers and financial statistics in the future will show us if we are right, or wrong.
