The Italian luxury manufacturer Lamborghini, recently revealed its first fully electric concept car – the Lamborghini Lanzador SUV. This presents a significant step for the company towards electrification. The Lanzador will have a power output of over one megawatt and will offer four seats in 2+2 configuration. Moreover, the SUV will offer active aerodynamics features that will increase the battery range, but also improve the performance of the vehicle. The Lanzador concept was presented at Monterey Car Week in August 2023.
As said by Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, “With this concept, we are ushering in a new car segment, the Ultra GT, which is poised to offer customers a new and unparalleled driving experience, one that’s quintessentially Lamborghini, thanks to groundbreaking technologies.”
The Lanzador features a futuristic design and an innovative Gran Turismo concept. It has two electric motors (one per axle), which enables all-wheel drive and efficiency for every condition, surface (alongside high ground clearance), or driving style. It also includes the newly developed advanced driving dynamics control system – Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), which enables finer and more precise driving.
Winkelmann also explained that “With Lanzador we are looking into our future without forgetting our DNA. The first coupés from Lamborghini with their front engines were sporty, elegant Gran Turismos suitable for everyday use as 2+2-seaters. The concept for our fourth production model leverages our philosophy of super sportiness combined with brave new technologies and fearless design, perfectly fitting into our Direzione Cor Tauri strategy,”
However, the company does not expect production entry until 2028, but this concept is said to be more than “whim of designers and engineers” and gives an overview of the future Lamborghini’s EV production. Other details such as the range is still unknown, but it is revealed that the vehicle will be powered by a “new generation high-performance battery”, able to provide long-range capability.
