Lamborghini has sold its last ever gas-powered supercar

But the supercar isn’t about to lose any horsepower over the switch to electric

Putting your foot on the gas is fastly becoming a redundant term with the maker of one of the world’s most loved supercars selling its last fully-gas powered models.

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told the German newspaper Welt on Wednesday that the brand has sold out its remaining production run of fully gas-powered models, Reuters reported.

All Lambos, from here on, will be electrified in some way.

Plug-in hybrid replacements for the Aventador and Huracan supercars will come first, then a plug-in hybrid Urus SUV.

Later this decade, Lamborghini plans to launch its first all-electric vehicle.

Despite the milestone, given Lamborghini buyers order their cars well in advance, the company will continue churning out gas-powered vehicles for some time.

The decision to embrace electrification after decades defined by V12 engines was fuelled by tightening emissions regulations around the world, Winkelmann told Insider in an interview earlier this year about the auto industry’s expensive and messy transition to electric vehicles.

Despite taking its foot off the gas, Lamborghini isn’t slowing down, with Winkelmann telling the publication he is still intent on providing customers on the edge of their seats.

The company’s first plug-in hybrid (a type of vehicle with more electric-only range and a bigger battery than a traditional hybrid) is set to hit driveways later this year.

Thanks to a V12, three electric motors, and a small battery, the Revuelto supercar can produce just over 1,000 horsepower and hit 62 mph in 2.5 seconds, Lamborghini estimates.
