Official: 2029 Lamborghini Urus Successor Will Be All-Electric

Electric Vehicles / 5 Comments

It will debut one year after the marque's first all-electric model.

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has confirmed to Road & Track that the successor to the best-selling Urus SUV will arrive for model year 2029 and it'll be all-electric. The unnamed SUV's debut is slated for one year after the marque launches its first all-electric model, which is expected to be a supercar.

"In '28 and '29 we will have our first two BEVs," Winkelmann said. "We will have a fourth model, so today we have three models. It will be the first one to be completely a BEV car in 2028. And then in 2029 there will be the new Urus."

These two EVs are vital for Lamborghini as they'll play a major role in reducing the automaker's emissions by around 80% compared to current output levels. Of course, Lamborghini is not done improving the Urus, which launched for the 2018 model year. A plug-in hybrid version is due in 2024 and more electrified models are coming.

"This year and next year we are going to hybridize all of our lineup," the CEO added. "The first one is the positioning car, so the real Lamborghini, the tip of the spear of our lineup."

Yes, Winkelmann is referencing the upcoming Aventador successor, also a PHEV. The Italian automaker, very conveniently, just revealed details about that successor's new naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine. It'll boast a tri-motor plug-in hybrid system producing a grand total of 1,001 horsepower.

Codenamed L545, the engine is also the lightest and most powerful V12 Lamborghini has ever built. Even without electrification, it pumps out 814 hp and 535 lb-ft of torque.

As for the Lambo's pure battery electric Urus successor, it's still too early to know which platform it'll utilize. We wouldn't be surprised if parent company VW Group supplied an architecture once again. The Urus rides on VW's MLB Evo platform which also underpins the Porsche Cayenne and Bentley Bentayga. The upcoming Premium Platform Electric (PPE) modular platform is one candidate since it'll underpin the upcoming Macan EV and Audi RS6 e-tron, the latter shown here in spy shots.

The Urus successor is still several years out but the powers that be in Sant'Agata are already plotting what could be the ultimate all-electric SUV.
