Rumor: First Lamborghini hybrid to debut in September 2019
The first-ever mass-produced Lamborghini hybrid car will most likely celebrate its live premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019. The vehicle will be stylistically similar to the Terzo Millennio Concept that the company introduced some time ago.
Lamborghini uses the provisional model designation “LB48H”, but rumors persist that the market name of the hybrid supercar is “Unico”. Whether true or not, it is official that the production quantity will be limited to just 63 vehicles priced at €2,500,000 each. That said, the entire batch has been already sold out in pre-orders.
Bits of official information are scarce right now. Lamborghini says the car will feature a lightweight chassis and an all-carbon body, and come powered with an improved 6.5-liter V12 engine working in tandem with an electric motor for 850 hp (634 kW) total output.
Lamborghini plans to release another hybrid supercar – the successor to its Aventador line – in 2020. The vehicle will also receive a V12 and an electric motor, but their specs remain unannounced. The company promises at least 50 km (31 miles) of all-electric driving range.
