Lamborghini announces the “Sian”, the company’s first hybrid

The Sian is an electric hybrid car which is Lamborghini's first hybrid, with supercapacitors that perform better than batteries.

The Italian manufactures have come up with the Lamborghini Sian, which is the very first electric hybrid, and the most powerful model designed by the company. Lamborghini decided to give the glimpse of the Sian at the Frankfort Motor Show 2019, and is expected to launch in 2020. The Sian is built on the same engine which was used in the earlier SVJ.

This powerful machine is packed with 6.5-liter V12 engine, which produces a massive 820hp of combined power, and an enormous 720Nm of torque. The engine produces 785hp which combines with the powerful 48V electric motor, producing that 820hp combined power. It crosses the 100kph mark in just under 2.8sec with top speed of 349kph. The improved aerodynamics, the addition of high-quality titanium valves and lightweight materials used, help it to achieve this brilliant performance mark. Also, the design of the Lamborghini Sian is very pleasing with sharp cuts and flowing side angles.

The new electric technology used is also very unique. The vehicle has super-capacitors that are used to give power to the motors, instead of the batteries. These capacitors store a large amount of charge, and are 3x more powerful than the usual batteries. This electric unit is directly in contact with the gearbox, increasing rear wheel stability and improving the maneuvers for parking and reversing. The manufacturers have very cleverly used regenerative braking to help in storing energy back to the batteries, and using it wherever required. This obviously will increase the total range of the vehicle.

Lamborghini has decided to launch the Sian at the price tag of $3.6million. The company has decided to manufacture only 63 units of the Sian, of which all the units are pre-booked before the launch itself.
