Lamborghini Huracan Successor Will Be a Really Fast Plug-in Hybrid
The Huracan’s Successor Could Feature Electric Motors and a V10
Published November 12, 2017
Considering the world of hypercars we’ve found ourselves in today, this can’t come as much of a shock. Lamborghini is working on a Huracan successor which will, by all chances, receive proper hybrid propulsion. It will be a Lamborghini Huracan plug-in Hybrid – one that can drive using electric power alone.
While Lamborghini willfully kept all the naturally aspirated goodness from its cars of before for the Aventador and the Huracan of today, everything will change when they reveal the Urus. A Biturbo V8, possibly a plug-in hybrid and, God forbid, a diesel (probably not though), will find its way under the bonnet of the Urus.
Lamborghini Huracan Successor in Plug-in hybrid Form Should Come in 4 Years’ Time
British car media Autocar interviewed Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali who confirmed that the Huracan successor “will need hybridization. Hybridization is the answer, not (full) electric.”
In that regard, we would not even be surprised to see a Huracan prototype with some kind of hybrid system soon. Yet, don’t expect the Huracan successor before 2022. An Aventador successor should reach the production line earlier, and that one will keep the naturally aspirated V12. Lamborghini officially confirmed that they will not ditch V10 and V12 engines. After all, it is a part of their identity.
Lamborghini commercial boss Federico Foschini said, “When they come to Lamborghini, they are asking for the power and performance of our naturally aspirated engines. That’s why we have already decided that the next-generation V-12 will stay naturally-aspirated and it is one reason why the [Aventador] remains unique.”
According to some sources (mainly on the Internet), the Lamborghini Huracan successor will not actually get that V8 hybrid system destined for the Urus. Lamborghini will, as it seems, develop a system based on the V10 motor. It will be close to what we have seen on hypercars of today making the Huracan successor go into a special niche of supercars. We are sure the next generation of supercars will all be electrified. It is the future.
