Lamborghini has announced it is set to fully electrify its range, first with an all-plug-in-hybrid lineup, and then with the planned launch of a fourth model that will be a pure EV.
The Direzione Cor Tauri plan—named after a star in the Taurus constellation—was unveiled by Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann at an event in Italy this morning. Car and Driver got the chance to talk to him about it in more depth. The plan means that the last Lamborghini road car to be powered exclusively with a combustion engine will be made before the end of 2024.
“This is a big challenge for the company, but it’s also good news for all of us,” Winkelmann said when we interviewed him by video link, “we want to keep the DNA of the brand unchanged, but we want to reduce the emissions by at least 50 percent starting from 2025 onward.”
This new plan isn’t going to diminish the sound and fury that Lamborghini models are most famous for, in the short term at least. Winkelmann confirmed our earlier reports that the Aventador replacement will use a version of the current car’s characterful powerplant in addition to hybrid assistance.
