It’ll take Lamborghini until 2028 to introduce its first fully electric model, while Ferrari is targeting 2025, years later than more conventional automakers. Germany successfully challenged the European Union’s planned combustion-engine tires from 2035 and pushed to allow synthetic fuels, in a bid to protect the likes of Porsche and Lamborghini.
While the Revuelto is in demand, orders for the last conventionally powered models are strong, Winkelmann said. The carmaker is sold out for two years across its entire lineup.
In the first six months of 2023, sales rose 5% to 5,341 cars. For the full year, the sports-car maker is targeting returns of at least 25 percent, following a record 36 percent during the first three months of the year.
After earmarking €1.8 billion ($2 billion) for the shift to plug-in hybrids, Lamborghini may hike investments with the introduction of its first battery-only model, Winkelmann said. The car will be a four seater suitable for everyday use, he added.
