We’ve known for some time that Lamborghini, like almost every other automobile manufacturer on earth today, would ultimately go electric. Now, we’ve got a clearer picture of just how the company founded by the bold and brash Ferrucio Lamborghini will take those steps.

While it doesn’t currently have plans for the entire lineup to phase out combustion engines as General Motors does, it’s already started moving toward a fully electrified lineup with this year’s introduction of the Revuelto hybrid supercar.

It’s also said that in 2027 or 2028, we’ll get our first taste of an all-electric Lamborghini, a 2+2 grand tourer. Here are all the important details about the future of the Urus and Huracan.

Lamborghini Urus Hybrid

The Urus is the best-selling Lamborghini of all time. That’s saying something considering that it only arrived in production form for the 2018 model year. Regulation and attitudes toward sustainability are forcing Lamborghini’s hand so sometime during 2024, it’ll move away from the gas-only twin-turbo V8 it currently uses in the Urus. It seems likely that it’ll simply begin using a hybridized version of the same engine though.

What we’re unsure of is whether or not Lamborghini will axe the gas-only versions altogether or if it’ll simply offer the hybrid powertrain as an available option. The latter is currently the way the Porsche handles its super SUV the Cayenne. If that’s anything to go by, we should be in for a pretty fast and fun future. The Cayenne Coupe Turbo S develops 670 horsepower from its hybrid V8 and can zip from 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds.

Lamborghini Huracan Hybrid

What’s an even bigger conundrum is exactly how Lamborghini will hybridize the Huracan. What makes it so hard to figure out is the car’s current engine. Every Huracan from the Technica to the rally-inspired Sterrato uses the same 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10.

Neither Lamborghini nor its parent company Volkswagen has any hybridized V10s in the stable to choose from for this job. Officials at Lambo have hinted that it’ll be more than six cylinders but less than 12 and that there won’t be any sort of “downsizing”.

Recent reports have highlighted the automakers’ belief that a six-cylinder isn’t true to the brand either. To us, that suggests that Lamborghini must be hard at work on the development of a PHEV V10. Lamborghini CEO Stefan Winkelmann has confirmed that however it happens, the public will know about all the details in late 2024.

With that move, every model in the Lamborghini lineup will offer hybrid power. Now we simply await to hear more and that includes whether or not the Huracan will exit stage left to leave room for a new model with a new name.

As we’ve pointed out, the whole Lamborghini family is going electric. That’s already underway with the Revuelto and technically will be complete with the introduction of the hybridized Huracan. After the grand touring all-electric model comes online likely in 2028, Lamborghini plans to switch the Urus over to an all-electric platform as well. That’ll split the family into two.

The super sports cars, the Revuelto, and the Huracan’s successor will still feature combustion engines for an unspecified amount of time. The all-electric GT car and the Urus will likely remain fully-electric from that time on.
