We know that Lamborghini has planned a solid second half to 2022. The automaker is gearing up to launch several new models, and one is close to closing. A new teaser video posted to Twitter hints that the reveal is imminent, and we look forward to seeing the new Urus debut.
The brief teaser only offers a glimpse of the instrument cluster, but the red line of the 6,800-rpm tachometer is easy to identify. That matches the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that powers the Urus, which is informative but not entirely helpful. Lamborghini is preparing two new Urus models, and both will likely continue to use the 4.0-liter engine, so it’s unclear whether the high-performance Evo or the plug-in hybrid will debut.
Our spy photographers have captured both models in recent weeks, but only the Evo hints at the upcoming redesign. Lamborghini hides the PHEV under the body of the current crossover; However, the company can’t hide the new door affixed to the rear fender that hides the charging port. Spy shots of the Evo show the crossover receiving a more aggressive front fascia, roof spoiler, and other performance tweaks.
Specific details are still sketchy for both, but the PHEV could borrow the powertrain from the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. The hybrid-assisted engine makes 689 horsepower (514 kilowatts) in the Porsche. The Urus currently makes 641 hp (471 kW) from the 4.0-liter engine, and it’s unclear if Lamborghini will change its output for the Evo. It could improve, perhaps becoming a sportier, performance-oriented variant. The PHEV may have more power, but the Evo should be lighter, giving it a unique advantage.
We’ll soon find out what Lamborghini is teasing about. The social media post said, “We are close to that. Get ready.” We are excited to see what the company has planned, and we know we will see more than two new Urus SUVs. The automaker is also teasing the Huracan Sterrato, a high-riding version of the V10-powered supercar. The higher ride height, thick plastic fender flares and roof rack help turn the Huracan into an attractive Urus alternative. Okay, maybe not.
