The Italian based automaker Lamborghini is planning to develop the Urus as a plug-in hybrid, if the luxury SUV will get the green lights.
When we have seen the concept version of the Lamborghini Urus last year we were wondering what engine the SUV will use once it will be ready for production. Should it be the V10 from the Gallardo? Or the V12 found on the Aventador? Well it seems that the question has been answered, sort of, because the company’s CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, has plans which might involve a plug-in hybrid setup. This will be made so that the model will become more accessible in China, where engines over 4.0 liters are taxed heavily.
The Lamborghini Urus SUV will use a V8 engine and two electric motors, for a total output of 670 HP. The model will ride on a new platform, engineered for the next generation of the Audi Q7, which will also be used on models like the Touareg, the Cayenne and even the Bentley SUV. Unfortunately we don’t have any more details on the Lamborghini Urus SUV for the moment and these will probably be announced once the production version will make its public debut.
