Governments are setting deadlines as early as 2030 to phase out internal combustion vehicles and hit climate goals, so many car manufacturers are hard at work to electrify their fleets. Now one of the most iconic supercars is expected to follow suit in the green energy revolution.

As reported by the Guardian, Lamborghini recently announced that it will produce only hybrid electric supercars by 2024, becoming the latest sports car producer to part ways with gas-guzzling, internal combustion engines. To achieve its goal, the Italian car company will invest as much as €1.5bn ($1.8bn) in hybrid and all-electric car innovation.

The carmaker, which is owned by Volkswagen, said its current Huracan, Aventador, and Urus models will be hybrid by 2024, and it will introduce a new all-electric model by 2030. At the moment it is unclear what the new car’s design will look like, but it will likely take the form of a four-seater, according to Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini president, and chief executive.

“Lamborghini has always been synonymous with pre-eminent technological expertise in building engines boasting extraordinary performance: this commitment will continue as an absolute priority of our innovation trajectory,” said Winkelmann, adding that the electrification plan will take the company “towards a more sustainable future while also always remaining faithful to our DNA.”

Earlier this year, luxury car brand Jaguar announced its plans to go all-electric by 2025 while, more recently, Ford revealed that America’s most popular pickup truck is going electric as well.
