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.
