No Hybrid Lamborghinis For The Time Being

Lamborghini Hybrid

Lamborghini has a very ambitious goal for 2015; lower CO2 emissions by 35% fleet-wide.

To achieve this, Lamborghini has introducing start/stop and a cylinder deactivation system on the 2013 Aventador. These two features will cut emissions down by 7%. The company has also revealed that they will use more carbon fiber in the construction of their vehicles to help reduce weight.

One option that has been taken off the table for the time being is using a hybrid system.

“Due to the size of the cars and due to the weight of the hybridisation it would be impossible for our cars to adopt this current technology. Firstly, it won’t fit, and secondly, it would reduce the their power-to-weight ratios by too much,” said CEO Stephan Winkelmann.
