Lamborghini has announced a final decision regarding the fate of the Urus has not been taken just yet.

In an interview with Autoblog, Lamborghini's CEO Stephan Winkelmann said that if the company will decide to add a new model, it will be an SUV since "this is a growing segment, a more emotional segment, a segment which is very well-distributed in terms of volumes all over the planet."

If produced, the LM002 spiritual successor will likely get the "Urus" moniker just like the namesake concept unveiled back in 2012 at the Shanghai Motor Show. Winkelmann went on to specify the SUV will likely adopt a hybrid powertrain due to the car's packaging and weight.

Based on reports which emerged last year, the Urus could be built in Slovakia and get a hybridized V8 developing around 680 PS (500 kW). It will likely be based on the second generation Audi Q7 and will share most of the design cues with the aforementioned 2012 concept.
