The first plug-in hybrid supercar from Lamborghini has just been unveiled. Luxurious sports cars aren’t exactly known for being environmentally conscious. Anybody’s thirst for speed should be satisfied by the Lamborghini Revuelto, which means “scrambled,” as long as they don’t focus too much on the battery life.
With only 6.2 miles remaining from a full charge, using this vehicle in all-electric mode won’t get you very far. There probably won’t be enough power to get you to the shop and back, but because this is a hybrid car, it’s not exactly designed for all-electric driving. According to the business, the combustion engine charges the rather small 3.8kWh battery on its own in just six minutes via regenerative braking on the front wheels.
The engine in this vehicle is built for power, acceleration, and high speeds because battery life isn’t the primary motivator for purchasing a premium sports car (it probably doesn’t make the top ten). The engine, which weighs only 480 pounds, produces 814 horsepower at a speedy 9,250 revolutions per minute. With numerous air intake ducts placed all over the vehicle to boost airflow for the engine, which results in 126 horsepower per litre, this vehicle is a Lamborghini through and through. The manufacturer claims that this is the “greatest output in Lamborghini’s 12-cylinder engines’ history.”
The design, which has sculpted surfaces, sharp lines, and hexagonal exhausts, is largely influenced by aeronautical engineering. Lamborghini also drew inspiration for its designs from its past.
as the rear wing floating blade that is frequently associated with the Diablo line, or the vertically opening scissor doors from 1970s Countach models.
There are plenty of connected infotainment options, a 12.3-inch digital cockpit with a big centre display, a similarly large 9-inch passenger-side display, and other high-tech interior features. Also, this is the first Lamborghini to ever have a cutting-edge driver-assistance technology. The connected smartphone and wristwatch app also keeps track of the car’s status by monitoring things like the fuel level, battery, range, and GPS location. Even basic functions like turning on the horn, lights, and locks may be done remotely with this app.
In order to deliver an all-electric luxury vehicle by 2030, Lamborghini and its parent company VW have taken this initial step. However, the company plans to keep producing synthetic fuel-powered combustion engines into the year 2030. The eye-wateringly expensive Lamborghini Revuelto is on sale later this year for $542,165.
