Lamborghini CEO not only admits PHEVs are the future, but confirms that the automaker is officially on board.
According to The Drive, we should see a new Lamborghini plug-in hybrid in the form of the Aventador by 2021. After that, other Lambo’s will follow suit, beginning with the automaker’s Huracan. The best part about this announcement is that it’s not speculation, nor is it something that was merely hinted it. In fact, Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali discussed the reality of PHEVs in a recent interview with Automotive News.
Probably around 2021, with the Aventador replacement that will add a motor to its V-12 engine. The same will happen later also on the V-10 family when we replace the Huracan. A plug-in model is the only way to maintain performance and keep Lamborghini’s engine sound while also reducing emissions.
In the past Lamborghini was planning to up the ante with regard to hybridization, but the potential move to a plug-in hybrid wasn’t made clear.
