This is the final year of Lamborghini's purely ICE-powered cars

Lamborghini Lineup

Automobili Lamborghini will be boosting its efforts toward electrified mobility, announcing that 2022 will be the final year that the brand celebrates its purely gasoline combustion engines.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What is the latest goal set by Automobili Lamborghini for its lineup?

    The company will be shifting toward electrified mobility starting next year.
  • How much funding has the brand allotted to make this goal a reality?

    Automobili Lamborghini has allotted nearly US$2 billion over four years to ensure that the target will be met. 
  • Last year, the Sant’Agata Bolognese-headquartered supercar manufacturer outlined its roadmap to decarbonization of future models in a plan called “Direzione Cor Tauri” (Towards Cor Tauri).

    To note, Cor Tauri, referencing the logo chosen in 1963 by company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, is the brightest star in the Taurus constellation and “represents Lamborghini’s move toward a future that is electrified but always faithful to the heart and soul of the brand.”

    According to the company, the electrification plan comes in three phases. The initial phase started in 2021 — which is set to continue this year — pays tribute to its glorious combustion engine era by launching special versions of its most significant models such as the V12-powered Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 announced in August 2021. Lamborghini said that more special versions are scheduled to be introduced this year.

    The second phase — to start next year until the end of 2024 — will start the transition to hybrid engines with Lamborghini targeting to launch its first hybrid production car in 2023, and to have its entire model range composed exclusively of hybrid models by the end of 2024.

    To support this shift to electrification, the company allotted nearly US$2 billion over four years — proving Lamborghini’s strong sense of environmental and social responsibility amid a period of profound transformation in the automotive industry.

    Lastly, the third phase of the plan is to transform all Lamborghini models into full-electric vehicles, starting with the introduction of the premier fully electric Lamborghini eyed to be launched in the second half of the decade and its fourth electric model before 2030.

    Further, the company’s program toward 2030 also involves a sustainability strategy that spans across production lines to the offices. Its Sant’Agata manufacturing site, which has been certified as carbon-neutral since 2015, has sustained this position even after production capacity has increased since then. Further reducing carbon emissions, environmental protection, sustainability in the supply chain, attention to employees’ welfare, and corporate social responsibility are also integral parts of this strategy.

    “Lamborghini’s electrification plan is a newly plotted course, necessary in the context of a radically changing world. Our response is a plan with a 360-degree approach taking us toward a more sustainable future while always remaining faithful to our DNA,” Automobili Lamborghini President and Chief Executive Officer Stephan Winkelmann was quoted as saying.

    Last year, Lamborghini enjoyed 13-percent growth in global sales compared to 2020’s sales record after selling 8,405 cars.
