Lamborghini is trying to keep internal combustion engine vehicles alive even after the end of the decade, said Chief Executive Officer Stephan Winkelmann, according to a German weekly newspaper.

Winkelmann said to Welt am Sonntag, the German weekly newspaper, the company will wait to see it is possible to offer vehicles with internal combustion engines beyond 2030. “One possibility would be to keep combustion engine vehicles alive via synthetic fuels," he was quoted in the report. The CEO informed last month the brand aims to roll out its first fully-electric vehicle by the end of the decade.
