A complete rejection of the installation of internal combustion engines on supercars, apparently, will occur after 2030. Stefan Winkelmann, CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, shared plans to gradually switch vehicles to fully electric motors. The strategy is called Direzione Cor Tauri and will be implemented over the next 9 years. That is, just until 2030. The Direzione Cor Tauri program will be implemented in three phases.
At the first stage, which will be completed by the end of this year, the company will present two supercars at once, which will be equipped with V12 engines. These models will be the last Lamborghini vehicles to be powered only by gasoline engines.
The second stage is designed for 2023-2025. It is planned to release a model with a hybrid power plant. But it is not yet known which hybrid will serve as the basis for new products. The fact is that Lamborghini already has such a model. Sian was introduced back in 2019 but comes in a very limited edition. By the end of 2024, all cars produced will already be hybrid.
The company plans to spend 1,5 billion euros on this. Upon completion of the first stage, it is planned to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions by Lamborghini cars by 2 times.
The company will begin the third phase of the Direzione Cor Tauri program in 2025. It is for this year that the start of serial production of the first full-fledged electric car is planned. The auto manufacturer has already noted that it will not deal with the revision of the old ones, but will present a completely new model.
It can be assumed that this is unlikely to be a crossover, since the office of the company has already said that the priority is powerful supercars, and the rest of the classes are just secondary production. Interestingly, it was the SUV segment that accounted for 54,5% of the total number of cars sold by Lamborghini last year.
