This is expected to be the craziest Urus yet.
Our spy photographers recently captured the upcoming Lamborghini Urus plug-in hybrid undergoing testing in the snow. This will be the most powerful version of Lambo's SUV to date, even including the recently revealed Urus S and Urus Peformante models. It will pair an electric motor with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to produce supercar levels of power. But how much? That is still unknown.
Rumors suggest there will be two outputs available. A standard model will produce around 675 horsepower, significantly more than the 657-hp rating in the S and Performante and a bit more than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, with which it will share an engine and hybrid system.
With the added benefit of a small all-electric range, we could see why Urus buyers might flock to the PHEV, especially in cities like London that have a congestion charge for gasoline-powered vehicles. 675 hp is more than most SUVs on the market, but we'd like to believe Lamborghini wants desperately to take the crown for the most powerful luxury SUV from the Aston Marin DXB 707.
The second output version could produce as much as 820 hp, which would easily put the Urus ahead of the DBX. Thus far the Volkswagen Group hasn't released any massive power bumps with its performance models, so we think the 820-hp rumor is a bit optimistic.
As we've seen in previous spy shots, the Urus PHEV will wear a unique bumper, hood, and headlights compared to the standard model. It's unclear why Lamborghini wants the PHEV to look so much different, but perhaps the company wants a clear delineation for its first electrified SUV.
Given the number of times we've already spotted this car, a late 2024 reveal should be in the cards. The Urus is already Lamborghini's best-selling vehicle, and the PHEV will only increase those numbers.
