Suara.com – Lamborghini, a luxury sports car brand from Italy, announced that it will begin to enter the electric car market. Lambo will initially produce hybrid cars before launching pure electric cars in the second half of this decade.
Lamborghini – which is still part of the German auto giant Volkswagen AG – will produce hybrid versions of the Huracan, Aventador and Urus by the end of 2024, said Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini in a press conference Tuesday (18/05/2021).
Then after 2025, Lamborghini will design a pure electric car. Winkelmann said that currently it is likely that the Lambo electric car will have four seats.
“But in terms of design, two-door cars are still the sexiest,” said Winkelmann as quoted by Reuters.

Indeed, when compared with its rival, Ferrari, Lamborghini’s plans are far behind. Ferrari, which is also headquartered in Italy, will launch a battery electric car in 2025.
Super car brands are currently having a headache in developing electric cars. Apart from Ferrari and Lamborghini, brands such as Aston Martin and McLaren are also hunting with time to develop electric cars.
The reason is because the majority of countries in the world, especially in Europe, have arranged that gasoline-fueled cars must stop being produced starting in 2030.
The problem is that the current lithium battery technology cannot support the performance of a sports car, which can go fast and have long distances.
“We have to redefine sportiness in a new era, in the era of electric cars. Mileage is a priority. This is what we still have to work on,” concluded Winkelmann.
