Lamborghini is gearing up for the Asterion LPI 910-4; a plugin hybrid electric car!!

It was presented for the first time at the Paris Auto Salon in 2014 as Lamborghini’s plug-in hybrid (PHEV) technology demonstrator, to win the highly coveted Design Award for conceptual cars and prototypes. This prize was introduced in 2002 at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este to celebrate automotive’s glorious past with the innovative future. 

The Asterion defines a solution to significantly reducing CO2 emissions through innovative technologies. It features a high performance hybrid system with a V10 5.2 litre longitudinally-placed, naturally aspirated mid-engine which, in combination with three electro motors, provides a maximum power output of 669 kW (910 hp). Asterion accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds, with a top speed of 320 km/h.

The Asterion LPI 910-4 guarantees unique Lamborghini driving feel with a smooth and reactive driveability and superior power. The vehicle doesn’t allow only an exceptionally low CO2 emission of only 98g/km, but more importantly for city driving, the Asterion has a pure electric range of 50 km.

Conceived and developed entirely in-house by Lamborghini, the Asterion LPI 910-4 takes the design and cutting-edge engineering expertise found in the current Lamborghini product range, adding innovative hybrid technology, and thus creating a Lamborghini that is clearly different – with a new, unexpected and sensual design, in line with the technical characteristics of the car – but yet still unmistakably a Lamborghini!!
