Leaked: Lamborghini Urus patent drawings

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 26, 2013

Lamborghini seeks to add a third model to its range. It’s possible that this vehicle would be a lot like the Urus SUV concept that made its debut at the 2012 Beijing auto show. No confirmation has been given yet about the Urus entering production. However, a new report states that this model may be the brand’s first plug-in hybrid. It’s hard to tell what will power the Urus concept.

The hood seems to be too short to accommodate either the V-10 of the Gallardo or the V-12 of the Aventador. By simply looking at the radically styled full-size SUV, it seems that the Urus will likely get a turbocharged V-8 from other Volkswagen Group products.

Ansa also said in the report that Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann believes that there may soon be a plug-in hybrid model, which meets the fuel consumption and emissions goals. This will also make this model more accessible in major markets such as China, where engines over 4.0 liters are taxed heavily.

There are plans for the Urus to share a platform with the next-gen Audi Q7. However, there’s no news yet about a plug-in variant of that model. According to reports, the hybrid Urus will feature an turbo V-8 engine coupled with electric motors for a combined output of 670 hp. There may be another option for those who admire the Urus’ looks but are not too fond of a hybrid Lamborghini. Winkelmann disclosed that the plug-in hybrid version will be one of two proposed powertrains. We don’t have any information yet on the second engine option.
