2025 Lamborghini Urus SE PHEV Takes SUV In Green Direction, Previews Brand’s Future Green Plans

by | April 24, 2024

Lamborghini is preparing for new age in performance motoring with 2025 Lamborghini Urus PHEV Hybrid. Latest version of Urus embraces green technology for performance and efficiency gains. 

2025 Urus SE takes SUV to new frontier with PHEV mode

The Lamborghini Urus was a big gamble for the Italian supercar brand when it made its debut several years ago. The SUV came from a company that only built one other SUV in its entire history and focused the bulk of its time on sleek exotic sports cars. 

The Urus proved to be a sales success for Lamborghini with the SUV bringing the brand to a wider pool of customers including family buyers who would scoff at the notion of a Lamborghini being a good family offering. However, tightening fuel economy regulations are forcing Lamborghini to find ways to make the Urus a better green machine. One way they are doing this is with the unveiling for the 2025 Lamborghini Urus SE PHEV which is attempting to bring green technology to Lambo’s hot-selling performance utility. 


A nip and a tuck hides the performance lurking underneath

The Urus SE benefits from minor exterior updates


With the bulk of the Lamborghini’s updates focusing on its performance hardware, it might be safe to assume that Lamborghini stylists were told to take the day off and go get a cup of espresso. However, look closer and you’ll see that the brand took advantage of the opportunity to make some minor styling revisions. 

The front fascia’s Matrix LED headlights get a new signature graphic for the daytime running lights that’s supposed to be inspired by a bull’s tail though it’ll take someone with a very sharp eye to spot the reference. The front end also gets a revised front bumper with some of the tweaks being inspired by the Revuelto supercar. The rear also gets tweaks to help increase downforce and the model also gets new 23-inch alloy wheels. The interior is largely carried over. 


Plug-in performance gives Urus SE more spice 

The real magic lies underneath the SUV’s sculpted skin

The 2025 Urus SE is bringing hybrid technology to the SUV for the first time ever but don’t mistake this as a case of Lamborghini going soft. All SE models are still powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that makes 612-hp. However, the engine is now paired with a small 189-hp electric motor that’s housed inside the eight-speed automatic. When paired together, the setup produced a combined system output of 789 hp and 701 lb-ft of torque. 

This tandem allows the SE to make the sprint to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds. That makes it the second-fastest Urus in the lineup with the PHEV only being bested (albeit slightly) by the range-topping Performante which can accomplish the same task in 3.3 seconds. 

The electric motor is powered by a 25.7-kWh lithium-ion battery pack mounted under the rear cargo floor. The brand says the PHEV hardware allows the Urus SE to get 37 miles of range on electric mode only with the V8 kicking in when the SUV goes past 81 mph. That range figure is on par with other PHEV SUVs and Lamborghini says that the SE makes 80 percent less emissions than a pure ICE model.

Lamborghini will eventually make the Urus EV only so act quickly if you want your ICE fix

Lamborghini didn’t reveal pricing for the 2025 Urus SE but the company has said in the past that the second-generation Urus will arrive as an EV only offering so if buyers are looking to get an ICE-powered model for themselves, they better move quickly. 

Look for the hybrid tech to also trickle down to the Huracan’s replacement later this year as part of Lamborghini’s efforts to downsize its engine lineup with the retirement of the V10 engine being a potent example of this plan in action.
