Lamborghini unveils first details of its High-Performance Electrified Vehicle

What’s Happening: Lamborghini has introduced its new hybrid super sports car, the LB744, which is the first High-Performance Electrified Vehicle (HPEV) in the Lamborghini lineup. The car combines a new 12-cylinder internal combustion engine with three electric motors and an innovative double-clutch gearbox.

Why It Matters: The LB744 sets a new benchmark in terms of performance and driving pleasure. The plug-in hybrid super sports car features a new architecture that delivers over 1000 CV in total, offering a combination of high power and low emissions. It is also the first HPEV model in Lamborghini’s lineup, emphasizing the company’s commitment to sustainable innovation.

Key Points:

  • The LB744 showcases a unique layout, with a 6.5-liter V12 mid-mounted engine complemented by three electric motors.
  • The car offers electric four-wheel drive, with a pair of electric motors debuting on the front axle and a third electric motor above the eight-speed double-clutch gearbox that can supply power to the rear wheels.
  • The LB744 is equipped with a lithium-ion high specific power battery pack situated within the central tunnel, which can be recharged using both ordinary domestic alternating and charging column current.
  • The new eight-speed Double Clutch Transmission (DCT) gearbox is lighter and faster in terms of shifting speed compared to the seven-speed double-clutch unit that is used in the Huracán range.

Bottom Line: With the introduction of the LB744, Lamborghini has established a new standard for high-performance hybrid super sports cars. The unique architecture of the car, combined with its innovative powertrain and gearbox, offers a combination of performance, driving pleasure, and sustainability.
