Lamborghini, the illustrious Italian supercar manufacturer, is taking a definitive step into the realm of electrification, a move that has been subtly hinted at through their hybrid creation, the Revuelto. This pioneering venture into the world of electric vehicles (EVs) comes with the promise of an all-electric Lamborghini poised to grace the market in the near future.
However, preceding this momentous debut, the company is orchestrating a spectacle for automotive enthusiasts during the prestigious Monterey Car Week. In an official announcement today, Lamborghini unveiled its plans to showcase "the new concept of its first 100 percent electric car" at the forthcoming Monterey Car Week.
This revelation comes in tandem with the news that this concept will also mark the "first prototype of our fourth series production car." The strategic unveiling follows closely on the heels of Lamborghini's recent confirmation of an impending electric 2+2 grand tourer, earmarked for commercial availability by 2028.
Futuristic Four-Seat EV Concept
As the anticipation mounts, speculation about the aesthetics and technological underpinnings of this EV concept abounds. If it is indeed a precursor to a production vehicle, it could potentially manifest as a four-seat grand tourer—a notion congruent with the latest industry insights.
This concept would join the ranks of the Terzo Millenio, which holds the distinction of being Lamborghini's inaugural all-electric concept, as well as the continuum of four-seat concept cars including the Estoque and the Asterion.
Notably, Lamborghini's CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, has divulged that this forthcoming electric marvel will not be constructed upon a dedicated Lamborghini platform. Rather, it will harmoniously integrate components from the expansive Volkswagen Group, with potential implications for fellow in-house marques such as Bentley and Porsche.
While not immediately transitioning to full electrification, other anticipated Lamborghini models like the Urus are primed for a hybrid transformation. This is exemplified by plans for the Urus and the forthcoming Huracan replacement, both set to incorporate plug-in-hybrid powertrains by 2024.
The ambitious goal of a fully electric next-generation Urus is projected to materialize around 2029. Marking a significant moment on the automotive calendar, the Monterey Car Week will commence on Wednesday, August 16, with Lamborghini's innovative concept poised to captivate attendees throughout the week.
The eagerly awaited showcase will commence on Friday, August 18, offering enthusiasts an exclusive glimpse into Lamborghini's electrified future—a future that now stands tantalizingly close.
