Lamborghini has positioned itself as a brand that goes against the direction of the rest of the automotive industry. Lamborghini produced cars synonymous with extravagantly styled bodywork and loud engines that stood out even among other supercars.

However, this year will be the last where the Italian automaker’s model range will consist entirely of pure internal combustion vehicles as it begins to hybridize its models. Even as Lamborghini develops its first electric vehicle, the company has already hinted that it will try to avoid going all-electric and keep combustion engines in its cars for as long as possible.

Recently, Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann told the German Sunday newspaper Welt am Sonntag“After hybridization, we will wait to see if it will be possible to offer internal combustion engine vehicles beyond 2030. One possibility would be to keep combustion engine vehicles alive via synthetic fuels.”

Lamborghini expects to have a full plug-in hybrid lineup by the end of 2024. At this point, the supercar maker will have a decade to explore its options before the European Union-wide ban on sales of new internal combustion vehicles begins in 2035. Despite the ban, Germany has already done allowances for synthetic fuels combustion cars be sold in the country after 2035. It will come as no surprise if government policymakers across Europe emulate the exception created by the German government.

Lamborghini would most likely offer a mix of powertrain types on its models in the 2030s. The automaker is expected to start producing its first electric car in the second half of this decade. I’m glad Lamborghini is looking to continue to excite the senses of supercar enthusiasts even as the company moves towards producing more environmentally friendly models.

It will be interesting to see how more and more of the development and production of synthetic fuels are declaring their intention to continue building internal combustion vehicles.
