Lamborghini Announces Gallardo Hybrid Set To Arrive In 2015

Posted Aug 9, 2009

Just when I thought that only Japanese and American automotive companies are the only ones going hybrid, the Italians have decided to enter the arena by making an interesting announcement.

Lamborghini has announced that they are making a Gallardo Hybrid, set to arrive in 2015.  The Gallardo Hybrid will have a slower engine, but will be powered by electricity.

For higher speeds, the gas engine in the Hybrid will kick in.  The announcement was made by Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann.  Winkelmann added that they are not interested in building an all-electric vehicle.

I’m anticipating that the hybrid Lamborghini will be a lot more expensive than its all-gas counterparts.  But there’s nothing like doing good for the environment while showing off your wealth at the same time.
