Supercar brand Lamborghini is aiming to switch its lineup to plug-in hybrids.
“After hybridization, we will wait to see whether it will be possible to offer vehicles with an internal combustion engine beyond 2030. One possibility would be to keep combustion engine vehicles alive via synthetic fuels,” the unit’s Chief Executive Stephan Winkelmann told a German weekly newspaper recently.
According to the same source, Lamborghini intended to roll out its first fully electric model at the end of this decade.
For brands like Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, or McLaren, turning their ranges to battery power can come with the expense of losing the high performance they are so appreciated for.
Lamborghini has issued a record 1.5 billion euros ($1.7 billion) for the transition to plug-in hybrids and is aiming to switch to a purely battery-powered model in the second half of the decade.
