No Plug-in Hybrid Technology for Lamborghini Aventador and Gallardo

Lamborghini Aventador Green

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has declared that plug-in hybrid options for the Lamborghini Aventador and the Lamborghini Gallardo are not planned. The CEO told a group of journalists at the 2012 Paris Motor Show that it would be impossible for both supercars to adopt the ‘Green’ technology.

There is no plug-in hybrid planned for the either the Lamborghini Gallardo or Aventador. Due to the size of the cars and due to the weight of the hybridisation it would be impossible for our cars to adopt this current technology. Firstly, it won’t fit, and secondly, it would reduce the their power-to-weight ratios by too much.

Instead, the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador will have a fast start/stop system and cylinder deactivation.

  1. i understand where they’re coming from but if it isn’t in the business plan in the future then maybe there won’t be a raging bull

  2. Hybrid tech is heavy, costly and therefore useless. You end up spending more energy because of the added weight. Just a lot of hype for the time being IMHO!
