Lamborghini Urus SUV - More details revealed

Lamborghini is expected to unveil the Urus SUV next year, which will likely go on sale in the international markets by 2018. The company's R&D chief, Maurizio Reggiani, has now revealed a few more details about the upcoming SUV.

The biggest confirmation about the Urus SUV revolves around its powertrain options. It will be the first Lamborghini model to be available with a plug-in hybrid setup. Reggiani has also confirmed that it will be the only plug-in hybrid model coming from the Italian supercar maker. The other offered powertrain option will be a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine. The R&D chief claimed that turbocharging is 'completely mandatory' for the Urus, as SUVs require huge torque.

The Urus will be based on the same platform that underpins the Audi Q7 and the Bentley Bentayga. It will thus borrow various chassis components from these two SUVs, including the 48V powered active anti-roll suspension system. Lamborghini will be offering the Urus in both all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive variants.
