Lamborghini Urus SE Is Blending Speed And Sustainability In A Hybrid SUV

Finally, Lamborghini has upgraded one of its cars with plug-in hybrid electric technology. The Urus SE's electric motor is incorporated in the eight-speed gearbox and produces 189 horsepower (192 PS or 141 kW), complemented by a 612 horsepower (620 PS) twin-turbo V8 combustion engine.

The Urus SE, boasting 789 horsepower (800 PS), represents the most powerful trim level available. It can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds, which is one hundredth of a second quicker than the Urus S (657 PS) but one tenth slower than the extreme Performante.

After the V12 Revuelto supercar, the Urus SE follows a year later as Lamborghini's second plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. An estimated 37 miles may be achieved with a 25.9-kWh battery. The Urus SE also boasts an updated electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch that adjusts to power either the front or rear axles. Lamborghini uses this in conjunction with the new virtual limited-slip differential (LSD) in the back end to generate "on demand" oversteer.

According to reports, removing the previous vehicle's genuine mechanical limited slip diff saves 20 kg (44 lbs). However, even with this weight reduction, the 2,540 kg (5,600 lbs) hybrid is still more than 300 kg (661 lbs) heavier than the non-hybrid counterpart. The SE may have 657 horsepower, but according to Lamborghini chief technology officer Rouven Mohr, it's just as quick on the track as the lighter, more driver-centric Urus Performante—with the same tires, of course.

The updated styling includes a new hood that stretches down to the updated grille, a Revuelto dash on the nose, new LED lights, and a reworked rear hatch with a black transverse strip connecting the taillights and visually connecting to Lamborghini's present supercars. The Galanthus wheels, boasting a massive 23-inch diameter and shod with Pirelli's brand-new P Zero rubber, are also brand new.

Interior upgrades include a bigger 12.3-inch infotainment screen, redesigned air vents that are less dull (but still dull), and reupholstered seats and consoles. Later this year, the carmaker will unveil its plug-in tech-equipped Huracan replacement. By 2028, the brand's first electric vehicle, the Lanzador crossover, will join the lineup, expanding it from three cars to four.
