Does that mean another variant of Lamborghini's Urus SUV is in pipeline? Winkelmann didn't reveal that much though. However, the existing models could new derivatives. Also, it could be a mid-cycle update for the Huracan and Urus. We could see a plug-in hybrid system being introduced to these cars to generate additional power. The Urus has already celebrated selling 15,000 units just a few days ago.

Speaking about the new generation Huracan, Winkelmann said that it is too early to say if this car will retain the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine. This engine is shared with the Audi R8, another brand from the Volkswagen Group. Lamborghini boss didn't rule out the possibility of a hybrid V6 engine though.

Winkelmann has also said in the interview with Autocar UK that the next completely new model from the brand will get a naturally aspirated V12 engine with hybrid assistance. This technology will be similar to the 819 hp producing Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, the car brand's first electrified production model.

The Lamborghini boss also said that the Aventador successor will come in 2023 with a PHEV setup. It will get an all-new V12 engine with a plug-in hybrid system.

Speaking about electrification, the automaker is currently focusing on electrified powertrains instead of pure EVs. The car brand believes electrified powertrain technology will help it to bridge the gap between the current internal combustion engines and future battery-electric powertrain more efficiently.
