Autotrader: This is when you can expect your electric Lamborghini

0

Italian supercar manufacturer Lamborghini is known to car enthusiasts for the wail of its V10 and V12 engines, but those may soon be a thing of the past.

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann says the automaker will unveil its first gasoline-electric hybrid performance car in 2023 and that a fully electric model will go on sale by the close of the decade. That first Lamborghini EV will take the shape of a 4-seat model and broaden the automaker’s lineup to four distinct vehicles, though Winkelmann did not specify if it will be a large coupe, a sedan, or an SUV.

Over the next few years, Lamborghini will begin shifting its lineup entirely to hybrid models of its Huracán and Aventador sports cars as well as its Urus SUV.
