|Lamborghini to release final petrol models
Lamborghini is set to release its final models without any form of electrification as the Italian car manufacturer readies for a switches to hybrid power.
Three new vehicles will farewell Lamborghini's from the petrol era and two versions of the Huracan, and one Urus SUV will go on sale at the end of the year.
Lamborghini models will be sold for the next 12 to 18 months without any hybrid technology and will be the last road-legal vehicles without hybrid or electric power.
The change-over to electrification will commence next year with the Aventador's plug-in hybrid replacement which will be followed by a hybrid Urus and the successor to the Huracan's the following year.
The new petrol version of the Huracan is expected to be called the 'Tecnica' and will be a rear wheel vehicle.
Lamborghini's top-selling model, the Urus performance SUV, will receive its mid-life facelift later this year after four years on sale, with a reveal set for the Concours d’Elegance event in Pebble Beach, California this August.
A facelifted Urus will be presented at Pebble Beach in August with new bonnet vents and wider rear wheel arch flares, new alloy wheels, a more angular front bumper, and re-styled side sills. Power will go up to 503kW
A plug-in hybrid of the facelifted Urus range arrives in 2024 as Lamborghini switches its entire range to hybrid power only.
The final petrol-only Lamborghini model should be a production version of the Huracan Sterrato off-road supercar concept which will come with wheel arch extensions, skid plates, increased ride height and smaller alloy wheels with rough-road-friendly tyres.
The Huracan's should come with 470kW/600Nm and a even-speed dual-clutch auto gearbox and all-wheel drive.
