Lamborghini Huracan and Urus – How A Brand Says Goodbye to ICE-Only Power

Four new Lamborghinis in just a few months? Now this could get exciting

Remember when I told you that Lamborghini was going to have a very busy year, including the reveal of the hybrid Lamborghini Aventador for 2023? Well, as it turns out, before Lamborghini turns its attention to full scale hybridization and, eventually, electrification, it’s going to bid farewell to ICE-only cars with two new versions of both the Huracan and the Urus. Once these four cars are released in the coming months, all Lamborghini vehicles from that point on will either be hybridized or electric, with the first electric model scheduled to arrive sometime in the middle of the decade. But wait, there’s more.

Lamborghini will bid farewell to its long illustrious history with internal combustion engines in the best way possible, and it all happens “in the coming months.”

So, Lamborghini is going to end the age of ICE-only power in 2022 with four final models, but there’s a lot more than that going on inside the walls of the automaker this year. Lamborghini has already confirmed that it will launch a new V-12 car (obviously hybrid) sometime in 2023. The company has also been forced to restart Aventador production to replace the 15 Ultimae that are burnt and sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean after the Felicity Ace cargo ship took the dive.

And, Ferrari’s first EV, yet to be named, will arrive before the end of the decade – probably by 2028 if not sooner.

As for those four new vehicles coming this year, Lamborghini is making it a point to keep things quiet. We do know that they are arriving “in the coming months.” As for what we can expect from the V-10 Huracan, there will probably be a production version of the high-riding, off-road prepped Sterrato Concept that was revealed back in 2019. The other Huracan-based model will probably be the JV Stradale, a more toned-down and subtle alternative to the wild Huracan STO. Both models have already been spotted in prototype form on public roads, so this all makes sense, but what about the Lamborghini Urus?

For the Huracan, we are pretty sure we’ll see the production version of the Sterrato Concept and the JV Stradale.

The two new models of the Urus are a little more mysterious. The rumor is that the Urus Evo will be one of the two models. Outside of more aggressive looks, the twin-turbo V-8 will also be tuned to deliver even more power. We were expecting the other Urus to be a hybrid, but that doesn’t fall in line with Lamborghini’s new plan. Since the company is trying to say goodbye to ICE-only power, a hybrid version of the Urus doesn’t make sense. It’s possible that Lamborghini was to double-down on that off-road and rugged look so a production version of the ST-X concept would match perfectly with the Huracan Sterrato in keeping the off-road theme. This specific model in conceptual form saw a weight reduction of 25-percent which may not be something to make it to production.

There’s a good chance that Lambo could make a production version of the ST-X Concept that would be more off-road oriented. It would go well with the Sterrato, too.

Either way, Lamborghini plans to reveal all these models “in the coming months,” so we don’t have to wait long to find out. Lamborghini’s first EV will come sometime between 2025 and 2028, and the next-generation Urus will be electric too.
