The transition to electric propulsion is gradually becoming a reality even for the manufacturer of high-performance sports cars, Lamborghini. The Italian automaker's first step towards electrification was the hybrid Revuelto. And it seems that in a few years, we'll also witness the debut of the first fully electric 'Lambo' on the market.
New concept expands
Lamborghini’s electrified lineup Before that, however, the manufacturer has a concept electric car ready to be showcased at the upcoming Monterey Car Week, which takes place next week. The first prototype of a fully electric vehicle from the brand will see the light just a few weeks after Lamborghini confirmed a new electric Grand Tourer, slated for sales sometime in 2028.
Charting a New Course
All technical data and design details are currently shrouded in secrecy, but based on available information, this could be a 4-seater GT model if it’s indeed a glimpse of the upcoming production vehicle. Following the Terzo Millennio, it would be the brand’s second fully electric concept and, along with the recently introduced Estoque and Asterion models, another four-seater in Lamborghini’s product range. A gradual transition to electrification Unlike previous models, the new electric Lamborghini will share some components with other Volkswagen Group vehicles and is likely to become an electric platform for other brands, such as Bentley and Porsche. Similar to Lamborghini, these brands are also not expected to go fully electric with their upcoming models immediately, but they will embrace various forms of hybrid technology in the near future.
It’s anticipated that the Urus SUV and the electrified successor of the Lamborghini Huracán will have plug-in hybrid power units by 2024. A fully electric next-generation Urus is expected later in this decade. Returning to the upcoming concept’s reveal, the Monterey Car Week event begins on Wednesday, August 16th, with the Lamborghini electric concept set to be on public display from Friday, August 18th.
