Lamborghininext Manage plugin hybrid The “super” SUV has been spied once again ahead of its previously confirmed 2024 launch.
Once the electric Urus goes on sale, it will compete with the likes of the BMW XM, and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid.
Our spy photographers captured this Urus PHEV prototype in black-and-white camouflage while parked on a grassy field. It’s parked next to several other Volkswagen Group vehicles, as well as what appears to be a Porsche Macan EV prototype.
The latest Urus PHEV prototype appears to be very similar in design to the recently spied example, with reworked LED headlights and a modified grille design.
There is also a closed charging flap on the left rear wheel arch like all previous Urus PHEV prototypes.
The Urus PHEV prototype is still covered in a lot of camouflage, which could point to Lamborghini hiding some changes for now. The interior is all covered as well.
It is expected that the upcoming Urus PHEV prototype will remove the camouflage and give us a better view from inside and outside.
It’s unclear at this stage what will power the Urus PHEV, but it could share a plug-in hybrid powertrain with the Porsche.
The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid uses a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 paired with an electric motor and a 17.9kWh lithium-ion battery, with a total system output of 500kW of power and 900Nm of torque.
This is 10kW and 50Nm more than the recently revealed Urus S which is the “entry level” version of the updated super SUV range.
In addition to the Urus S, Lamborghini has also revealed the more brutal-looking Urus Performante.
Both models are powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 490kW and 850Nm, sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Lamborghini has previously said it will launch its first hybrid series production vehicle in 2023, with Lamborghini’s director for the APAC region, Francesco Scardaoni, recently confirming it will be the successor to the Aventador.
This Aventador successor was previously spied and will have a V12 naturally aspirated engine with a plug-in hybrid system.
The Hyundai PHEV and an electric Huracan successor will follow in 2024.
Lamborghini’s roadmap for electrification will culminate with its first all-electric model, which will arrive “by the second half of the decade”.
Mr. Scardaoni recently confirmed that this electric vehicle (EV) will have a 2+2 seating configuration.
Previous rumors have indicated that it will be a large tourer that will look similar to the Estoque concept from 2008, and the Asterion concept from 2014.
