Unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show on April 2012 as a concept SUV, we are beginning to narrow it down to what the final production car will be like. The Lamborghini Urus will be powered for the first time by a turbocharged engine, a 4.0 liter V8 that will be unique and not shared with Bentley or Audi, but now they’re thinking forward for a new hybrid Lamborghini
With the clear objective of being the fastest SUV, Urus will be much lighter than other SUVs because of the extensive usage of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer.
Although it is set to be revealed at the 2018 Geneva motor show and many luxury brands have added autonomous driving to their premium models, you will have to drive the SUV yourself as Winkelmann reportedly said they have to keep the company’s image as a driver’s marque. Other reports claim that the Urus will be the first Lamborghini ever to have the option of a second engine. While the V-8 will be all about performance, a second hybrid Lamborghini engine would be done more for eco reasons as Winkelmann said: “The other one will be more about reduction of emissions that absolute performance, but also because packaging-wise, and power-to-weight–wise, a car like the hybrid Lamborghini is far more suitable for let’s say a first attempt at hybridization than one of our super-sports cars.”
