The all-new Urus SE is a harmonious blend of cutting-edge technology, environmental consciousness and unbridled performance

In a bold leap towards an electrifying future, Automobili Lamborghini has unveiled their first plug-in hybrid in its Super SUV lineage.

With its reengineered twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine paired seamlessly with a powerful electric motor, the Urus SE boasts a staggering 800 CV that propels it from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 312 km/hr. This phenomenal performance is complemented by an astonishing 80 per cent reduction in emissions, making it not just blindingly powerful, but also the most eco-friendly Urus to date.

Thanks to its advanced plug-in hybrid system, one is promised a drive like no other. The integration of an electric torque vectoring system and an electronic rear differential ensures optimal power distribution regardless of terrain–whether you’re navigating the asphalt, desert dunes, or icy paths, the Urus SE delivers agility and control.

“Our mission was clear: to offer state-of-the-art performance combined with Lamborghini’s uncompromising character,” says Dr. Ing. Rouven Mohr, Chief Technical Officer at the Italian marque. “The Urus SE sits at the apex of driving pleasure, combining absolute comfort, performance and fun-to-drive dynamics.”

Lamborghini’s design ethos shines through in this model–a newly designed bonnet, advanced matrix LED headlights, and streamlined front bumper that accentuates its muscular stance. At the rear, lending inspiration from the iconic Gallardo, an updated diffuser and spoiler is fitted to enhance aerodynamic efficiency and rear downforce by 35 per cent at high speeds.

The Urus SE exudes luxury not just on the exterior; the revamped dashboard within the driver’s cockpit holds a 12.3-inch touchscreen and intuitive digital instrument cluster. Guided by its “feel like a pilot” philosophy, every interaction with the vehicle ensures thrill and intuitiveness.

As always, customisation options are aplenty–clients will be spoilt for choice with a selection of over 100 body colours, 47 interior combinations, and four types of embroidery, allowing each unit to be a unique and fitting expression of its owner’s personality.
