Lamborghini has renewed its commitment to decarbonization with a new target, which the OEM says will be supported by its biggest investment to date.

The scope of Lamborghini’s ‘Direzione Cor Tauri’ strategy, which involves the electrification of the OEM’s model range, and the decarbonization of the production site, has been extended to reducing emissions across the entire value chain. The strategy will now seek to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% per car across the whole value chain by 2030 (compared to 2021 levels). Here, the updated strategy will encompasses the full Lamborghini enterprise, from production to the supply chain and logistics, to the product use phase, covering the full product life cycle.

First announced in 2021, the ‘Direzione Cor Tauri’ program facilitated research on the opportunities and challenges of electrification, enabling the start of Lamborghini’s hybridization phase in 2023, with the launch of Revuelto, its HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle) hybrid super sports car. In 2024, Lamborghini’s electrification plans will extend to the launch of the first hybrid version of the Urus Super SUV and the second HPEV in the range, replacing the Huracán. The OEM’s first all-electric model is planned to launch in 2028, and will be followed by Lamborghini’s first full electric Super SUV in 2029. Through this strategy, Lamborghini ultimately expects to achieve a significant reduction in CO2 emissions compared with 2021 for the fleet in circulation, aiming for a 50% reduction by 2025 and 80% by 2030.

Lamborghini’s decarbonization commitment extends further to the supply chain and logistics, including the transport of vehicles and spare parts to and from its Sant’Agata Bolognese facility. The main objective here is to favor more environmentally friendly transportation with a lower environmental impact, thereby reducing the carbon footprint of suppliers. Through this initiative, for example, the company increased the percentage of rail transport from 4% to 35%, while reducing air transport from 18% to 1% for the transfer of finished vehicles.

In addressing the strategy, Lamborghini’s R&D department will focus on six key pillars to tackle the challenges posed by EVs, including a Human-Machine Interface on versatile models such as the Urus; the use of carbon fiber to reduce the overall vehicle weight; an electric powertrain; an advanced frame; smart aerodynamics that enhance performance further; and integrated control that offers a driving sensation similar to a pilot.
