Italian supercar maker Lamborghini has unveiled the plug-in hybrid variant of its Urus crossover at the 2024 Auto China Beijing.

Thanks to the hybrid powertrain, the Urus SE has the highest power and torque output in its lineup and is also the fastest, while boasting an 80-per cent reduction in emissions.

“The underlying mission of the project was clear: to offer state-of-the-art performance combined with the uncompromising character typical of Lamborghini’s DNA,” Chief Technical Officer, Dr. Ing. Rouven Mohr said. “The Urus SE is positioned at the top of its class in terms of being fun to drive and for its driving dynamics. It’s a vehicle that harmoniously combines different qualities — absolute comfort and at the same time performance and fun-to-drive, ensuring an experience like no other.”


The Urus SE comes with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that’s been tuned to work with the electric powertrain. The engine pumps out 620ps and 800Nm while the electric motor churns out another 192ps and 483Nm.

In total, the system develops 800ps at 6,000rpm and 950Nm of torque from 1,750 to 5,750rpm. Acceleration from 0-100km/h takes 3.4 seconds, 0-200km/h in 11.2 seconds and the top speed is claimed at 312km/h.

A 25.9-kW lithium-ion battery can provide up to 60km of range in full electric mode. The electric motor not only complements the V8 engine but also acts as a traction element, making the Urus a 4WD electric SUV. The top speed in electric mode is 135km/h.

The Urus SE features a new centrally-located longitudinal electric torque vectoring system with an electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch, which distributes driving torque variably and continuously between the front and rear axles.

Lamborghini said the transfer case works in synergy with the new electronic limited-slip differential installed on the rear axle, giving the vehicle “on demand” oversteering to convey the feel of a purebred super sports car.

The front and rear multi-link suspension feature car height adjustment system as well as rear-wheel steering. Depending on the driving mode selected, the vehicle’s air springs adjust for ground clearance, with travel ranging from 15 mm in Corsa up to 75 mm when the lifting system is activated.

According to Lamborghini, special attention was given to the calibration of the air suspension system to highlight each driving mode.

  • For Strada, the development work improved the already high level of comfort of the Urus S. Sport mode injects even more fun into driving, enhancing the characteristics of the new transmission to facilitate the start and continuation of drift.
  • In Corsa, the mode designed expressly for track driving, the Urus SE expresses its full dynamic potential. This is thanks in part to the suspension ECU/electronics, which controls the chassis movements (pitch, yaw, roll and pumping) to make the vehicle extremely stable and responsive between the curbs of a racetrack, as well as on difficult and low-grip surfaces thanks to the anti-roll bars managed by the 48v electronic system.
  • The Neve, Sabbia, and Terra modes have all been optimized to maximize wheel travel and the consistency of ground forces for the best traction on any surface.
