Lamborghini has granted a preview of its forthcoming venture into the realm of electric vehicles, scheduled for its premiere in 2028. This unveiling took place at the 2023 Monterey Car Week in California, where they introduced the Lanzador concept.
The Lanzador concept is designed as a raised 2+2 coupe, drawing inspiration from the classic Espada model. This launch is aligned with the commemoration of the Espada’s 60th anniversary upon the eventual arrival of the production version.
While the official name of the final production model remains undisclosed, this will mark Lamborghini’s fourth model line, expanding their repertoire beyond their existing lineup of supercars and SUVs.
Although the intricate specifics of the Lanzador’s electric powertrain are yet to be disclosed, expectations are set on the advancements in electric vehicle technology before the planned 2028 release. As per the available information, the configuration includes electric motors on both axles, resulting in an all-wheel-drive system that generates over one megawatt or 1,341 horsepower.
This setup enables efficient distribution of torque between the front and rear axles and individualized control over each rear wheel’s rotation. These features combine to deliver superior control, particularly on winding roads. To enhance the driving experience, active aerodynamics, suspension systems, rear-wheel steering, and a software-driven dynamic control system based on sensors will be employed.
Rouven Mohr, who leads Lamborghini’s research and development, praises the concept as an “electric, super-intelligent ultra GT.” Federico Foschini, in charge of sales and marketing, confirms a range of over 300 miles and rear seats that comfortably accommodate adults.
Within the cabin, the dashboard incorporates a pair of screens: one serving as a digital instrument cluster and the other catering to the front passenger. The central console, responsible for mode selection, effectively separates the front seats. Sustainable materials, including recycled wool, leather, and materials derived from fishing nets, are extensively used.
For production, which is scheduled to take place at Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese plant, significant expansion efforts will be necessary to accommodate the innovative production volume and methods.
