Just a few days ago, the production version Lamborghini Urus was revealed by a set of leaked patent drawings. Today, new details suggest that indeed the Urus SUV is nearing production approval and it could also be the first hybrid model in Lambo’s lineup.

In fact, it has been pretty clear that the future Urus will be offered with a new powertrain ever since the concept version was brought onto the market, as its hood was too short to house either the V-10 or the V-12 engine currently used by the Italian maker.

Apparently, Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann suggested that the production version Urus could be offered with a plug-in hybrid setup. The model is believed to combine a 600-horsepower V-8 engine with an electric motor for a total output of 670 horsepower. Still, this looks to be just one of the powertrains proposed for the Urus. Unfortunately there are no details on the second option.

It is nice that the production version of the Urus SUV is going to be made. I like the fact that this Lamborghini Urus will be in a hybrid model, that menas this car will be environmental-friendly.
