|Lamborghini confirms that the Hurricanes and Aventador of the future will be hybrids|
Lamborghini has finally confirmed what he has already dropped recently. The CEO of the Italian firm, Stefano Domenicali, has revealed to Top Gear that the next Hurricane and Aventador will be plug-in hybrids.
The arrival will not happen until 2020 and 2022, respectively, but Lamborghini's technical director, Maurizio Reggiani, wanted to reassure the purists: "As long as he is the technical director, our supercars will not have a turbocharged engine. you have emotion, then you have nothing, "he said.
So, Reggiani says the V12 and V10 naturally aspirated engines will be alive for another generation, but with hybrid assistance and a small range of electricity to help the company reduce its average emissions.
Given this confirmation, doubts arise about how this increase in weight that will occur when the electric unit will be included will affect. Domenicali has also stated that both the Hurricane and the Aventador have the ability to propel themselves with only an electric motor, although he has acknowledged that this technology will not be ready until at least 2026, year in which they expect electric drive trains to satisfy their needs. power needs.
Domenicalli has also admitted that his team of engineers are already at work not only in the manufacture of the long-awaited batteries in solid state, but also in the idea of a supercar that will move thanks to hydrogen.
But before, in 2019, the first Lamborghini ecofriendly will hit the market. It will be effectively a plug-in hybrid materialized in the Lamborghini Urus, which will borrow the mechanics of the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid: a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine associated with an electric propeller.
