The last time we laid eyes on a Lamborghini Urus PHEV prototype (name unconfirmed), it was still summer in the Northern Hemisphere. But the super electric crossover is back, this time in a new set of spy shots that show it testing on the Nürburgring and driving on German roads.

Visually, not much has changed compared to our previous vision. However, there are some notable differences, such as the new lower section of the bumper that no longer has an integrated split apron and the reworked side air vents.

It has visible reflectors integrated into the new rear bumper this time. We can also expect a different diffuser compared to the regular S and Performante versions of the model. Another thing worth mentioning is the apparently new tailgate, which does not have a recess for the license plate holder. It remains to be seen whether this will happen and whether the rear license plate will move to the bumper.

A number of updates on the interior will be part of the Lamborghini Urus’ hybrid makeover. Previous spy shots revealed what appears to be a new infotainment screen with a soft-touch section underneath that replaces the traditional buttons. It will also feature a new key combination and possibly a revised bottom screen, among other possible tweaks.

We still don’t know what powers the Lamborghini Urus has PHEVAlthough it has been reported that the powertrain may share a lot of things with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. This means it could get the same 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and electric motor for a total output thought to be north of the 700 horsepower mark.

Pay attention, if this is indeed the magic number , it may be metric. As a result, it can translate to more than 690 brake horsepower and 515 kilowatts. That would be a big bump on the 666 hp Demon (657 hp/490kilowatt

) is produced by a twin-turbo V8 engine in the S and Performante versions of the super crossover. More on that when the car debuts, likely within a few months, and deliveries may begin in the first half of 2024.

Now, on a final note, the Urus S and Urus Performanceante may be leaving the automotive world for good. Some outlets are talking about the disappearance of these two models at the end of 2024, and the Urus PHEV will be the sole survivor of the series. We’ll take this information with a grain of salt until Lamborghini confirms it, but we won’t be surprised to learn that it’s true. After all, the Sant’Agata Bolognese company plans to go the all-electric route in a few years. (spy
