Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, has presented the firm’s roadmap to decarbonisation.
Its first phase, which stretches until 2022, will continue to celebrate the combustion engine by presenting models that pay tribute to the company’s recent success.
This phase will be characterised by the development of combustion engines for versions that pay homage to the brand’s glorious history and iconic products past and present. Two new cars in the V12 model lineup will be revealed before the end of 2021.
Following this phase, the firm will transition into a second hybrid phase, with its first hybrid series production car slated for launch by 2023. Lamborghini’s entire range will also be electrified by 2024.
Preservation of the authentic Lamborghini driving experience will remain the focus of the company’s engineers, despite the electrification of the firm’s lineup.
The company’s internal target for this phase is to reduce product CO2 emissions by 50% by the beginning of 2025. More than $2.44 billion (1.5 billon Euros) have been allocated to lead this hybrid transition, the largest in the firm’s history.
The third phase will see Lamborghini developing fully-electric vehicles through the second part of the decade. A fourth fully-electric model is planned for this period.
