Lamborghini announces plans for fully electric Urus SUV by 2030
Lamborghini is taking its bestselling Urus Super SUV to the next level – the electric level!
CEO Stephan Winkelmann has confirmed that a fully electric Lamborghini Urus is on the horizon and set to hit the road by the end of this decade. This is not just a new chapter for Lamborghini, but a whole new book in the world of luxury electric vehicles.
With a budget of $1.8 billion over the next four years, the high-performance sports brand is revving up its efforts to electrify its popular models. The iconic Urus is getting a major upgrade, with plans to transform it into a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) by 2024.
And that’s just the beginning! Lamborghini is gearing up to launch its first fully electric vehicle in 2028 – a stunning “2+2, two-door car with more ground clearance” that is sure to turn heads. And the electric Urus model is set to hit the market in 2029.

Lamborghini CEO claimed that 2022 would be the last year we would see a new solely gas-powered Lambo released. Winkelmann added that the their first two electric vehicles will help lower overall emissions by 80%.
Until the Italian carmaker releases their first two BEVs at the end of the decade, its current lineup will be “hybridize”. Starting with an Aventador HEV in 2023, then a Huracan PHEV and Urus PHEV due in 2024.
