Lamborghini’s electrification transition is in full progress as it signals the end of its traditional pure-combustion engine vehicle production. The opportunity to buy a pure combustion engine is no longer available. Lamborghini has sold out its Huracan and Urus models that exclusively used V8 and V10 powertrains until their production ends.

In an interview with the German newspaper WELTLamborghini’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed that they had sold all remaining models equipped only with combustion engines from the Sant’Agata factory, which marks the cessation of their production.

Lamborghini’s Electrification Transition: Farewell to Huracan and Urus Models

None of the Urus or the Huracan models, including the Sterrato or even the Tecnica, are available for purchase at this moment, which actually also marks the end of the availability of Lambo’s popular 5.2 Litre, naturally aspirated V10 powertrain.

Few reports suggest that the upcoming 2025 Huracan’s successor will likely switch to a smaller V8 PHEV powertrain which it will likely share with the upcoming Urus PHEV model but available in different states of tune to aid the sportscar characteristics.

The Huracan successor will also use a single e-motor for driving the front wheels for e-AWD, which the Revuelto will likely inspire. However, the Revuelto uses two separate electric motors to drive the front wheels (the Huracan will likely use one to keep the cost in check).

Lamborghini’s electrification transition took its first significant leap in March 2023 with the introduction of the Revuelto hybrid. Replacing the Aventador, the Revuelto signifies the brand’s dedication to electrification and maintains a connection to its combustion roots with its powerful V12 engine.

Why Lamborghini is Pivoting Towards Electrification

Lamborghini’s electrification transition is more than just a marketing strategy. It is a calculated move responding to industry trends and regulatory requirementsAutomakers are urged to overhaul their production lines with a mounting focus on sustainability and carbon neutrality. Lamborghini, led by brand boss Stephan Winkelmann, is making strides in this direction, aiming to halve CO₂ emissions by hybridizing all its vehicles.

Lamborghini’s Performance and Future Prospects in Electrification

As Lamborghini undergoes its electrification transition, the brand continues to maintain strong performance within the Volkswagen Group. Thanks to the significant contribution of the Urus model, Lamborghini boasted a notable return on sales of 35.7% in the first quarter of 2023.

The Urus SUV by Lamborghini is their top-selling model. Although it was introduced in 2022, the high demand has made the Urus S and Urus Performante, which have a powerful 657 hp (490 kW / 666 PS) 4.0-liter V8, currently unavailable. As a result, interested buyers will have to wait until 2024 for the updated version, which will come with a plug-in hybrid V8. Additionally, Lamborghini has announced that the next-generation Urus will be fully electric and is scheduled to be released in 2029.

Lamborghini is also renowned for its long waiting lists and continuous record-breaking production and sales. Even the new Revuelto flagship with a plug-in hybrid V12 sold out by the end of 2025, highlighting the strong global demand for both traditional and electrified Sant’Agata bulls.

However, Lamborghini’s electrification transition doesn’t stop at hybrids. The brand is setting its sights on full electrification, with plans to launch its first purely electric vehicle in 2028 (which will likely be a modern-day successor to the Espada).

Following closely behind, the second-generation Urus is slated to go fully electric by 2029. It’s clear that Lamborghini’s electrification transition is more than a pivot; it’s a revolution, reshaping the future of this iconic car manufacturer.
