New spy shots show a facelifted Lamborghini Urus with a PHEV drivetrain during testing. The SUV still hides under the camouflage, but the hoods and foils should disappear later this year. There are also some unconfirmed details that we probably won’t be able to confirm before the official game, but whet your appetite in the rumours…
Lamborghini introduced the updated Urus S last September, showing a revised design. The plug-in hybrid Urus should look the same if recent photos are to be believed. However, there are some differences. The sub-electric SUV features a new hood, updated headlights and a unique front fascia with redesigned lower vents. From the back, however, the plug-in Urus looks like a regular Urus. However, minor changes to the apron or diffuser are possible.

There are many rumors about the power train. The plug-in hybrid technology of the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is expected to move under the body of the Lambo. While the Porsche produces 700 hp and combines a 4.0-liter V8 with a twin turbocharger and an electric motor, the Urus can produce more than 800 hp in its top configuration. But there may also be a less powerful variant with “only” around 680 hp.
The new photos don’t give a better look at the interior, but we don’t expect much difference from the S or Performante. The SUV could get hybrid specs, and of course there will be menus and displays related to the powertrain’s electrical component.
Lamborghini has not yet set a launch date for the new Urus. It will likely be launched sometime this year after the manufacturer unveils its Aventador successor at the end of March. The new supercar will be at the top of the Lamborghini range and will still have a V12 under the hood. However, also electricity.
