Lamborghini has revealed its Sian Hybrid, which is the first of its kind form the company. Most notably the Sian Hybrid does not use a lithium-ion battery, instead, it uses a supercapacitor which is lighter and can store more power. The car's charging system uses power from the car's braking system. Once the car goes faster than 80 mph, the e-motor is disconnected to save energy. No official release date has been set for the car, however, it will have a $3.6 million price point and be limited to 63 makes.
The Sian will be able to produce 819 horsepower, which comes from its V12 engine combined with a 48-volt e-motor. The car can hit 62 mph in approximately 2.8 seconds. The new Lamborghini car will also feature an integrated gearbox.
