789HP Lamborghini Urus SE PHEV: First Hybrid Plug-In ‘Super SUV’ Ups the Ante

When Automobili Lamborghini first announced its ambitious electrification plans, we had our doubts. The automaker, best known for ripping V12 engines and performance-heavy combustion, was perhaps the least equipped to deal with the electric movement, but we’ll be the first to admit that we were wrong. The mad Revuelto proved the Italian marque’s mettle, demonstrating how electrification could enhance what Lamborghini is best at, and just a few months later, the same ethos has now been applied to an SUV.

Lamborghini Urus SE PHEV Performance

The new Lamborghini Urus SE plug-in hybrid reimagines the automaker’s revered design for the electric era, dialling the muscle up to a whopping 789 horsepower (588 kW). The vastly improved capacity comes courtesy of an electric powertrain, which has been paired with the Urus’ already potent twin-turbo 4.0 V8. Lamborghini claims the new ‘Super SUV’ will hit 0-100 km/h in an eyebrow raising 3.4 seconds, with the marque claiming a supercar-bothering top-speed of 312 km/h. 

In the simplest terms, Lamborghini has taken everything that fans love about the existing Urus and introduced a swathe of new hybrid features into the fold. According to Stephan Winkelmann, chairman & CEO, the modernisation of the brand’s best-selling release marks a significant step in Lamborghini’s Direzione Cor Tauri strategy.

“With the Urus we changed the paradigms of the SUV world, ushering in a new segment,” Winkelmann said. “In just a few years, the Urus has become our brand’s bestseller, enabling Lamborghini to attract new customers and strengthen its position in the most important markets. With the Urus SE, we’ve taken another step towards the future in line with our Direzione Cor Tauri strategy, moving ahead with the electrification of the range and the path toward decarbonisation that began with the introduction of the Revuelto super sports car in March 2023.”

Lamborghini Urus SE PHEV Electrification

To put the new hybrid motor performance into perspective, the 2025 Lamborghini Urus SE PHEV now has more power than the Urus Performante, effectively taking its place as the flagship SUV. That could signal further industry evolution and it’s not out of the question to say Lamborghini has its sights set on the Ferrari Purosangue and the Aston Martin DBX 707.

That said, performance only represents one factor in Lamborghini’s bold electrification plan; the other being sustainability. The plug-in hybrid features a 25.9-kWh lithium-ion battery stuffed beneath the load floor, delivering a somewhat disappointing 60km EV-only range. Certainly, this is not the electric SUV we’ll be taking across the country, but rather a noiseless early morning starter that won’t wake up the entire neighbourhood (but how else would people know you own a Lamborghini?).

“The Urus SE is a fundamental evolutionary step, not only in terms of sustainability by virtue of a radical reduction in CO2 emissions, but also in terms of performance and sportiness, thanks to the adoption of cutting-edge technical solutions starting with the hybrid powertrain,” Stefano Cossalter, product line director for Lanzador and Urus. “The Urus SE is our Super SUV with two hearts: one thermal and linked to our roots, the other electric and futuristic. Beating in unison they offer a new interpretation of the unmistakeable Lamborghini personality, but taken to a new level.”

As expected, the entire dynamic nature of the Urus has been overhauled including its various functions like the inclusion of a new centrally-located longitudinal electric torque vectoring system with an electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch, which distributes driving torque variably and continuously between the front and rear axles.

In plain English, that means there would be an oversteer on demand to make it feel like a proper sports car. One can go for Hybrid when driving in Strada mode or Recharge, which can be selected in Strada, Sport, Corsa and Neve modes, which juices up to 80 per cent of the battery. Finally, there is the Performance option which can be selected not only in the Strada, Sport, and Corsa modes but also in Sabbia and Terra.

“The underlying mission of the project was clear: to offer state-of-the-art performance combined with the uncompromising character typical of Lamborghini’s DNA,” Lamborghini chief technical officer, Dr. Ing. Rouven Mohr said. “The Urus SE is positioned at the top of its class in terms of being fun to drive and for its driving dynamics. It’s a vehicle that harmoniously combines different qualities: absolute comfort and at the same time performance and fun-to-drive, ensuring an experience like no other.”

Lamborghini also took this opportunity to further sharpen the aesthetics of the Urus, the result of which is a sleeker and more muscular silhouette. The front section cops a new hood with a floating design, with the absence of the cut-off line mirroring the athletic cues we first noted in the revamped Revuelto. From there, Lamborghini has added new headlight clusters that feature matrix LED technology, a brand-new light signature inspired by the tail of the Lamborghini brand’s bull and a redesigned bumper and front grill.

According to design director Mitja Borkert, the entire aesthetic of the new Lamborghini Urus SE PHEV was conceived to “amplify the athletic style” of the existing model and carry on the design language introduced with recent models.

“The design and proportions of the Urus remain incomparable and absolutely recognisable as a Lamborghini,” Borkert said. “At the same time, the Urus SE delivers a highly sophisticated evolution, consistent with our new iconic and essential design philosophy, and importantly, delivering an enhanced feeling of luxury together with more Ad Personam potential. We took inspiration from the Revuelto with the floating engine bonnet, achieving a very clean and muscular front design.”

Inside, Lamborghini wants to make you “feel like a pilot” with the Urus again copping the same Top Gun-inspired switchgear that made the Revuelto such an interesting release. There is a new 12.3-inch touchscreen and a new Human Machine Interface (HMI) along with an equally large digital driver display. Also new on the Urus SE is a dedicated telemetry system and bespoke displays related to the driving assistance systems.

The state-of-the-art front light system integrates a new, distinctive DRL signature. The rear emphasises a wider stance with a focus on the new diffuser and low-mounted license plates, while the rear mesh takes inspiration from Lamborghini supersports cars like the Gallardo. The interior design follows the brand’s ‘feel like a pilot’ philosophy, which is intended to enhance interaction between the driver and the digital system.

2025 Lamborghini Urus SE PHEV Pricing and Availability

Lamborghini has not yet confirmed whether the 2025 Urus SE PHEV will be heading to Australia and the pricing for the upcoming model remains a mystery. That being said, we expect pricing for the SE to be similar to the Performante (which is around AUD$275,000) upon launch. Inevitably, prices will creep up for the Urus SE but these changes elevate the Urus as a proper supercar on stilts with a power output to match.
