The Italian company Lamborghini wants to have two hybrid supercars in its range after 2030, said the CEO of Volkswagen.

Lamborghini chief executive Stephan Winkelmann told the Italian daily Il Corriere della Sera that synthetic fuels would allow the carmaker to have very low carbon emissions.

Like its rivals Ferrari, Aston Martin Lagonda and McLaren, Lamborghini is struggling with how to switch to battery power without losing the high performance that supports their premium price.

“We don’t know yet if there will be enough fuel to meet the needs of all manufacturers,” said Winkelmann. “We need the legislators to guide us in this direction.”

Synthetic fuels, known as e-fuels, are being developed in conjunction with biofuels to allow the continued use of modified versions of combustion engines, rather than a full switch to battery-powered electric vehicles.

Lamborghini, part of the Volkswagen Group, plans to turn its entire range into a hybrid between 2022 and 2024, while its first all-electric model is expected at the end of the decade.
