The Italian automaker Lamborghini is renowned for its powerful supercars. Recently Lamborghini announced their plans to switch its naturally aspirated (NA) engine with plug-in hybrids. Lamborghini’s current lineup includes track-focused models such as Aventador, Huracan, and Urus. Moreover, the automaker has huge plans to shift to complete electric powertrain by the end of the decade. 

Lamborghini: Sales and Transition

Lamborghini is in its final year of equipping vehicles with their naturally aspirated engines. The NA engines from Lamborghini are famous for their power output. In fact, Lamborghini has made multiple lap records in world-famous circuits, including Nürburgring with their NA engines.

Moreover, the slow transition towards electric powertrain will begin by equipping models such as Huracan and Aventador with a plug-in hybrid setup. Lamborghini had its entire production run sold out for the years 2021 and 2022. The automaker sold 8,405 units in the previous year achieving a record 13% rise in global sales.

The Volkswagen Group will unveil Lamborghini’s first production unit with a plug-in setup. Furthermore, the company plans to switch to a complete electric lineup by the year 2024

Future of the Bull

Lamborghini has invested a massive amount for its shift to the electric powertrain. In fact, a 1.5 billion euros ($ 1.7 Billion) allocation was made by the automaker for the transition to a plug-in hybrid setup. The Plug-in Hybrid versions will hit the road in the year 2023. However, the all-electric units will only come out in the year 2025.

Lamborghini can picture a completely electrified future with the backing of the VW group and their advanced technology in the electric sector. Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini’s CEO, stated that the upcoming model will be a four-door vehicle designed for daily use. 

Lamborghinis has been a favourite for many petrolheads. Their journey from being good-looking poster cars to powerful machines that can rule any track says a lot about the brand’s heritage. All the NA engine lovers have one year to gather up enough money to buy an ICU model.
