Lamborghini has finally unveiled its fully electric vehicle by showcasing a new concept at the Monterey Car Week. Named Lanzador, it’s a high-performance 2+2 Gran Turismo with unmistakable brand design elements. This concept previews the model that will go into production in 2028, joining the brand’s four existing products: a 1,001 hp V12 hybrid called Revuelto, the successor to the Huracán, and an evolution or successor to the Urus SUV.
While it may appear to be an Urus with a slightly elongated rear, the Italian marque asserts that the concept’s design is inspired by the Sesto Elemento and the modern Countach. “With this concept, we are inaugurating a new automotive segment, the Ultra GT, which is ready to offer a new and unparalleled driving experience that is quintessentially Lamborghini, thanks to innovative technologies,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
As a conceptual vehicle, it remains shrouded in mystery. Lamborghini is still gathering feedback from its customers before finalizing the configuration of this future electric car. Inside, the Lanzador features an aerospace-inspired cabin with extensive glass panels in the roof and a Y-shaped central console that separates the driver and passenger. Most controls reside in the console, but the driver can adjust the car’s dynamics through the steering wheel controls. As a future-focused concept, its interior is filled with sustainable materials, including sustainably tanned leather, 100% authentic Australian Merino sheep wool, and recycled plastic.
In terms of propulsion, it is equipped with two electric motors placed on each axle, providing not only all-wheel drive but also efficiency in all driving conditions. Although Lamborghini has not yet revealed the actual power and performance figures, they have stated that the two motors are capable of producing a combined peak power of over one megawatt (1341 hp). The pair of motors will draw energy from a next-generation high-performance battery, although specific data has not been provided.
“With the concept of the fourth model, we are looking to our future without forgetting our DNA,” continues Winkelmann. “Lamborghini’s first front-engine coupés were sporty and elegant Grand Tourers, suitable for daily use as 2+2 seaters. The concept of our fourth production model leverages our philosophy of super sportiness combined with new technologies and fearless design.”
This appealing and first Lamborghini electric vehicle won’t be ready until 2028 and may end up being something different. However, this Lanzador concept suggests that the Italian manufacturer is moving in the right direction, resulting in a fantastic electric super sports car for everyday use.
