As far as SUVs go, the Lamborghini Urus is one of the most extreme examples money can buy – at least until the V12-powered Ferrari Purosangue arrives, that is. With a twin-turbocharged 641-horsepower 4.0-liter V8 under the hood, it’s mightily quick; 60 mph is dispatched in less than 3.6 seconds. But it’s not just a straight-line special, its dynamic prowess belies the 4,850 lbs curb weight.
But as we enter the era of electrification, it’s only inevitable that the Raging Bull will, eventually, turn the Urus into a full EV. The company’s head of design, Mitja Borkert, recently confirmed this to the Australian publication, Drive. “[EVs are] the future, be we have to decide when, in which market, and in the segments it makes sense, he said.
Bonkert then added, “Our interpretation is that probably the more versatile and daily use cars such as the Urus – for sure, they will be the first fully electrified compared to the pure super [sports] cars.”
