Thinking Of Buying An ICE Powered Lamborghni? Well, You Can’t
As Lamborghini is going hybrid in 2024, all ICE models are already sold out
Okay, so let’s establish what we know, we know that Lamborghini makes some of the most sought after cars in the world. We also know that the brand recently revealed its Revuelto hybrid model and announced its entire range would go hybrid in 2024. Last but not least, we know that one can no longer purchase a new purely internal combustion engine (ICE) Lamborghini. Why?
Yes, you read that right, the days of petrol powered Lamborghinis are gone forever, as the brand enters its plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) era. Speaking to the German newspaper, WELT, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed that the last Lamborghini models with pure combustion power from the Sant’Agata factory are sold out until the end of their production.
Moreover, this is not breaking news, as the remaining production run of the Huracan supercar which will be discontinued soon and has been sold out since May. As of now, none of the Huracan variants, including the Tecnica and the Sterrato, are available for purchase anymore, signalling the end of the naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine without electric aid.
Reuters also reports that Winkelman has confirmed that the ICE Lamborghini models will be replaced by PHEVs in 2024 and 2025. This statement was most likely the big man referring to the successors of the Urus and the Huracan respectively.
The Lamborghini Urus SUV is currently the brand’s most popular model and despite being introduced in 2022, the Urus S and Urus Performante with the 657hp churning 4.0-liter V8 are no longer available due to high demand. This means that interested parties have to wait for the facelifted version which will arrive in 2024 exclusively offered with a plug-in hybrid V8 model.
On top of that, Lamborghini is also famous for its long waiting lists and keeps breaking production and sales records one after the other. Even the all-new Revuelto PHEV with the V12 has already been sold until the end of 2025, which is a good sign for the brand’s inevitable electric future which we should see by 2030.
