A facelifted 2022 Lamborghini Urus will arrive next year with a pair of new, 500kW-plus halo variants, according to a new report out of the UK.
British magazine Car reports a mid-life facelift for Lamborghini's super SUV will debut in 2022, with the updated range headlined by a flagship, plug-in hybrid 'PowerHybrid' variant delivering 614kW – up 136kW over the 'standard' Urus on sale since 2018.
Up to 447kW of the total will reportedly be derived from a new 'LK5' engine designed by Porsche – though the mill's displacement and cylinder count have yet to be confirmed, teased or rumoured – with the remainder coming from multiple electric motors, including one integrated into the transmission good for 125kW.
However, the extra punch will come at a cost: weight. Car claims the Urus PowerHybrid will tip the scales in some 250kg heavier than the 'standard' model, pushing the plug-in super SUV over the two-and-a-half tonne mark.

Buyers keen on a (slightly) lighter Urus will reportedly be able to opt for a new Sport RS grade. Fewer details have been divulged by Car on the model, however the publication claims it will develop 503kW, and will be positioned as a "raw" offering within the revised line-up.
Alongside the new variants, expect the 'standard' Urus to receive updates inside and out, with revised bumpers and wheel designs, and more technology within the cabin.
The British publication reports the updated Urus could see the current-generation SUV out to as far as 2028, with Lamborghini reportedly set to suffer from an "embarrassing" shortage of new products over the coming years – including the successor to the Huracan, not due until 2025, with V8 power said to replace the current V10.
The 2022 Lamborghini Urus facelift – including PowerHybrid and Sport RS models – should make its full debut sometime in 2021, ahead of a European market launch in 2022.
