For those of you who are regular reader’s (and for the rest that aren’t), earlier this year, in August to be precise, our ‘EV Stig’ travelled down to Lamborghini Pangbourne to test out their new Lamborghini Urus. Well, we actually have some very exciting news regarding Lamborghini’s latest SUV, but before we unveil our secret, let us remind you of some of it’s key stats…

The Urus follows on from Lamborghini’s first attempt at an SUV, the monstrous LM002 of the late 1980’s and 1990’s. Where that was a limited edition run of only 328 cars, although very large ones at that, the Urus is a fully fledged Lamborghini production SUV. However, we do need to make a slight correction, as there is far more to this new SUV than just that. The Sant’Agata based supercar manufacturer are calling the Urus a ‘Super Sports SUV’ or SSUV. This is due to its aesthetic and handling dynamism and outright performance. It’s powered by an engine that currently isn’t found anywhere else in the Lamborghini line-up, a bi-turbo 4 litre V8 that produces 650hp and 850nm of torque. This output produces a 0-62mph or 100kph time of 3.6s and a top speed of 190mph or 305kph. Sitting on wheels ranging between 21 to 23 inches, the Urus comes with 4-wheel drive and 4-wheel steer and adaptive dampers. There’s also a Torsen differential set centrally that allows for a real-wheel bias of 60%, but this can be increased to 85% for a more dynamic driving experience. To aid this car’s ‘super sports’ credentials further a torque vectoring differential has also been added at the rear to ensure tighter cornering as power is sent to individual wheels.

As this is a modern performance vehicle, the Urus follows the growing trend of coming equipped with a multitude of different drive modes. These can be used to express the car’s character and performance in different ways and environments and in Lamborghini fashion, very emotive language has been used. They are known as the ‘Anima’ controls. These come with the standard performance orientated controls that alter power-train, suspension and steering feel: Strada, sport and Corsa. These we have grown accustomed to in other models, but the Urus comes with 3 new, more off-road specific modes: Neve or snow, Terra – land, more for general off-road conditions and finally Sabbia or sand. It is clear then that the Urus has a dual personality like no other performance vehicle. The Urus also comes with the new Aventador’s ‘ego controls’ which are a new addition where the user can alter power-train, suspension and steering independently of one another.

However, despite it being Lamborghini’s (and the world’s) first SSUV, it is said to have usability typical of other SUVs, moreover, all the comfort and convenience you would expect in a premium SUV. It comes with full leather, 18 way adjustable heated sports seats, a very responsive infotainment system with a DAB digital radio and satnav, USB connectivity in the front and rear and a new ambient lighting package with 6 different colours. As a result, it’ll probably be very usable for longer journeys and daily use in addition to 4-wheel drifting on track days.

Now we’ve heightened your interest and whet your palette it’s probably about time to tell you our secret. It should come as no surprise to you after reading the above that EV Hire has ordered and will be very shortly receiving our very own 2019 Lamborghini Urus Rental in London! We’ll keep the spec to ourselves for now, but we can’t wait to receive our second Lamborghini and share it with all of our existing and new customers! More news on this will be coming soon!

Alex Smith, Hat Films

I can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of it and it has become an extension of my life!

Paul Wallace, Supercars of London

From start to finish, the Tesla rental experience was effortless. The EV Hire guys delivered the ludicrously fast Model X P100D to my doorstep. Wonderful service! After my trip, EV hire were ready and waiting to collect the vehicle. Easy and efficient!

Tim Burton, Shmee150

The car is absolutely incredible and I was sad to hand the keys back!! I have always been a little weary of vehicle hire in the past but EV Hire have completely changed my perspective.I wouldn't hesitate to hire from these guys again.
First class. I will back.

James Daly, JD Personal Training

The best Christmas present my husband has ever had. Great service and Daryl is exceptionally good at his job. Thank you, see you next year!

Ruth Moyler

My wife and I hired a Tesla Model S P100DL+ (unbelievable car) for the weekend from EV Hire. The service was first class. The car was delivered clean and fully charged to our house and collected once we had finished. All questions were promptly answered both before and during the rental process. We also found the rates very reasonable for what is a truly phenomenal driving experience. I cannot highly recommend them enough!

Mr & Mrs Tabbah

Really great experience in the model S. We drove from Hampshire to Pembrokeshire and back for a work team building experience on the coast. Used every feature of the car plus the supercharger network.
I'd like make a particular mention of Daryl who provided an excellent service. He's a very trustworthy guy.
Unreservedly recommend this company.

James Simms

Incredible car and overall a lovely weekend with a Tesla Model X P100DL+. Communication was great all the way through and will have to give the Tesla Model S P100DL+ a go at some point! Delivery and collection was effortless. Would recommend.

Mr Khalid El-Qasabagli

Very easy & trouble free rental process. Wonderful customer service. A great experience. Already recommended them EV Hire a few people

Zoe Nolan

Don't doubt this company - the cars are new and in perfect condition. Tesla P100DL+'s are a huge amount of fun and Daryl runs this company properly.
To top it off, EV HIRE dropped the car off at my house and also collected it on the day of pickup included in the price. Can't fault them!

Anthony Herbert

First class experience and a wonderful car (Hired a Model X P100DL+). Pre-hire every question I had was answered quickly and the EV Hire team really couldn't do more to make sure I got the most out of the experience. Car was immaculate and just the most incredible drive - thank you so much for a weekend that will stay with me for a long time - your passion for Tesla's is infectious!

Jon Barrett

I have to say my eyes have been well and truly opened. The Model S P100DL+ we hired was top of the line and I have NEVER been in a car that accelerated so fast. Sublime. Brilliant customer service. Heartily recommend EVHire.

Richard Dawes

Had a Tesla Model X P100D for a day out in Oxfordshire. What a great car, wonderful service and amazing experience overall.
Thanks to the entire EV Hire team!
