“We still have the opportunity maybe to go into synthetic fuel with those [types] of cars, but this means that there must be a change in the legislation which I cannot foresee right now,” he added. These comments are echoed by Porsche’s Oliver Blume, who praised the German government’s decision to look into incorporating e-fuels into plans.
However, should the eFuel dream die, Winkelmann has said Lamborghini will embrace electrification in the next decade. “We will be fully electric by the latest, beginning of the 2030s,” he added. While the company’s first EV will hit the scene before the end of the decade, there’s still plenty for gearheads to look forward to, such as the recently teased Huracan Sterrato, an off-roader based upon the Huracan. Earlier this year, the brand also revealed the Huracan Tecnica, a rear-wheel drive variant with a 631-horsepower naturally aspirated V10.
For now, the brand will lean on hybridization as a way of keeping the ICE engine alive. The company has already confirmed that the Huracan will gain a plug-in hybrid setup from next year. The Urus and Aventador successor will also receive electrified powertrains.
