Lamborghini has unveiled its first-ever plug-in hybrid SUV, the Urus SE, and it comes to town with a load of upgrades.

Lamborghini has once again set the automotive world abuzz with the introduction of the Urus SE.

What sets the Urus SE apart is its groundbreaking plug-in hybrid technology, marking a significant evolution in Lamborghini's storied lineage.

The Urus SE combines the brute force of a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine, delivering a muscular 612bhp, with an electric motor that adds a further 189bhp.

Together, they unleash a colossal 789bhp and 800Nm of torque, ensuring that this Super SUV practically teleports from zero to 100km/h in a mere 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 312km/h.

This model also champions sustainability with an impressive 80% reduction in emissions compared to its predecessors.

Encapsulating the essence of innovation, the Urus SE's electric motor is ingeniously integrated into its eight-speed automatic transmission.

This setup not only drives all four wheels but also propels the SUV on pure electric power over a range of 60km.

Design-wise, the Urus SE has evolved significantly from its petrol-only sibling. The front boasts a new hood with a sleek, floating design that enhances the vehicle's dynamic silhouette.

This design nuance eliminates the traditional cut-off line, augmenting the athletic posture of the Urus SE.

The rear isn't left behind, with a redesigned cargo compartment hatch and a new spoiler that together boost downforce by 35% at high velocities, enhancing stability.

Inside, the cabin is a high-tech sanctuary featuring a 12.3-inch central touchscreen that interfaces with the latest Human Machine Interface (HMI) and a matching digital instrument cluster.

These screens bring Lamborghini's futuristic vision to the fingertips of the driver.

The redesigned air vents with anodised aluminium trim and the tactile new pushbutton panel elevate the interior aesthetics, matching the exterior's boldness.

Rolling on majestic 23-inch Galanthus rims wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres, the Urus SE remains adaptable with optional Scorpion Winter 2 tyres for those seeking adventure in cooler climes.

The colour palette is more vibrant than ever, with over 100 bodywork options, including the striking Arancio Egon and Bianco Sapphirus.

For those desiring a personal touch, Lamborghini's Ad Personam programme offers limitless customisation, ensuring that each Urus SE can be as unique as its owner's imagination.
