After many rumors, this spy shot gallery finally shows us the Lamborghini Urus plug-in hybrid. An electrified crossover might be one of Lambo’s planned debuts for this year.
The main focus of these images is the additional flap on the driver’s side rear fender. The matte-finish door is affixed to the body. Behind it, there is a place to plug the vehicle. Further evidence that this is a PHEV is on the windshield where there is a sticker indicating the plug-in vehicle.
This Urus still wears the front end of the current model, rather than what we see from the upcoming refresh. It lacks the updated grille, hood, rear fender and other elements that were among the elements on the revised model.
According to previous rumors, the Urus PHEV allegedly uses a Porsche LK5 engine. This is the name for the hybrid-assisted twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 found in models like the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. In the current application, the plant produces 689 horsepower (513 kilowatts). Although, the report claims Lamborghini might push output to around 820 hp (612 kW). Either way, it will be an upgrade over the Urus’ existing 641 hp (479 kW) 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8.
The updated Urus is also reportedly still available with the current engine but possibly with an increase in power output. Expect an eight-speed gearbox to carry over from this existing model.
Besides the standard Urus and PHEV, there are rumors of a performance-focused model fit between them. It is expected to produce around 700 hp (514 kW) and has a lower weight to create a sportier crossover.
The updated Urus may debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August. It’s unclear if the hybrid launch will happen at the same time or come later. Lamborghini intends to offer some form of electrification on all of the brand’s products by the end of 2024, so the wait to see a PHEV shouldn’t be too long.
