Lamborghini has teased an updated version of the Urus, although it is unclear if we are looking at the facelifted Evo model or the long-awaited plug-in hybrid variant.
The Italian car manufacturer has already confirmed that two new versions of the Urus will be unveiled this year. One of these will be the facelifted 2023 Evo model that recently set a new SUV record at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, snatching the record away from the Bentley Bentayga. We suspect this is the model featured in this teaser.

The 15-second video, shared to Twitter, isn’t particularly revealing and beyond providing us with some imagery from a bedroom floating above the Earth and the view from outside a high-rise apartment, only shows the new Urus on two occasions. The first shows the tachometer of the SUV while the second briefly shows it crashing through a wall.

If the Urus in question is indeed the facelifted Evo model, we know that it will feature a tweaked version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, tuned to produce in excess of the current model’s 641 hp and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque. We do not expect to see huge performance gains as it is only a mid-cycle facelift but nevertheless, we’re sure customers will be happy to have some extra grunt under their right foot.
A number of visual changes are also expected. These will include a more simplified front fascia and some minor changes to the rear, including tweaks to the diffuser.
As for the aforementioned Lamborghini Urus PHEV that is also in the works, it is expected to combine the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with electric motors, allowing it to pump out upwards of 808 hp, all while offering an all-electric driving mode.
