WATCH: 2025 Lamborghini Huracán Successor Reveals Its Hybrid Powerplant

July 31, 2023

Lamborghini CEO Stefan Winklemann announced earlier this year the Huracán replacement will indeed be a plug-in hybrid; he set the reveal date for the end of 2024. A twin-turbo V-8 will constitute the gasoline-powered portion of the drivetrain, similar to the 4.0-liter unit in the Urus. The result will be a screamer, with a stratospheric 10,000-rpm redline. Its electric motor (or motors; the exact number and placement isn't public yet) will assist the engine at normal rpm with the turbos waiting in the wings to jump in at 7,000 rpm for maximum top-end power. The Huracán successor will use at least one axial-flux electric motor, which will be fitted to the new transaxle shared with the Revuelto. Electric power is more likely given that's the layout of the Revuelto.

Regardless of whether it uses one or two of those axial flow motors, it definitely sounds like it has an all-electric mode. It also appears to have some of the same design features as the Revuelto, like the six-sided exhaust port between the tail light panels (but as a single, large port rather than a pair), a sunk-in engine cover/deck lid, a deep rear diffuser, and minimized lighting.

We expect the Huracán replacement to use a variation of the Revuelto's new monocoque chassis but made from aluminum instead of carbon fiber to keep manufacturing costs down. As with the Revuelto, a small lithium-ion battery will ride between the seats under the center console, likely storing the same 3.8 kWh of energy for a short fully electric driving range to meet the letter of certain global emissions laws.
