Such is the fluidity of this interchange between electrical and combustion that, after a time, you cease pondering of the automotive as being a hybrid in any respect, and settle to easily benefit from the visceral expertise of the Revuelto—which, though massively entertaining, is extra refined than any earlier Lamborghini. And not simply within the powertrain. The suspension can be exceptionally judged, whereas the brand new eight-speed, twin-clutch gearbox is a big step-up.

Under braking, the e-axle and rear e-motor contribute to the stopping energy, so the friction brakes can recharge the battery extra successfully. However, so good is the handover from regen to precise braking that I could not inform the place one ended and the opposite started. If something, that is exemplary of the entire Revuelto—all the things simply works collectively so very properly.

The inside can be a win, the most effective but from the model. The steering wheel format is logical and ergonomic. The match and end have been fortunately taken up a notch or three. There are extra storage areas and telephone holders. The three-screen sprint permits you to swipe sure knowledge over from the central show to the slender passenger one. And, the seats are comfy sufficient for, whisper it, each day use. Overall, it’s totally tidy.

Track-Bound Triumph

The Revuelto has modified my notion of Lamborghini. Behind the wheel, this automotive is just not aggressive or brutish (regardless of its seems, that are sometimes macho), neither is it intimidating to drive. It conjures up confidence—flatters you, even—and is outrageously entertaining.

While it is clear that this super-hybrid won’t ever be as emissions-friendly because the model’s long-way-off all-electric mannequin, it is also apparent that almost all of Revueltos—which begin at $608,358 within the US, the place deliveries will happen starting 2024—might discover their pure dwelling on the race monitor, ready for rich house owners to reach for infrequent days of spirited auto indulgence. This means a quantity of lifetime miles equating to a tiny proportion of what the typical household ICE or hybrid contributes to fossil gas emissions annually.

But this conceit is not the purpose. For petrol heads, right here is additional proof of what electrical innovation can do to enhance ICE earlier than the ban hits gross sales subsequent decade. Maybe the Revuelto will convert just a few extra engine lovers to full EV earlier than then? It ought to.

Can a plug-in hybrid Lamborghini be a correct Lamborghini? Yes. Yes, it could actually. But it is what the Revuelto guarantees for future Lamborghinis that is much more electrifying.
