Lamborghini has officially unveiled its much-anticipated electric car, the Lanzador EV, at Monterey Car Week. This high-riding 2+2 GT showcases a bold design and offers an “unprecedented on-board experience,” according to the Italian sports car maker. While leaked images of the Lanzador had circulated earlier in the week, the official unveiling provided a closer look at Lamborghini’s first electric supercar.
The Lanzador EV combines the performance of a Lamborghini super sports car with the versatility of a daily driver. It draws design inspiration from the Revuelto sports car, the Urus SUV, and even elements of a spaceship. Notably, the EV features a hidden trunk under its short front bonnet and adjustable rear seats, adding practicality to its sporty appeal.
Under the hood, the Lanzador EV boasts a high-power electric motor on each axle, delivering over one megawatt of peak power. The all-wheel-drive system includes e-torque vectoring, allowing for seamless maneuverability during dynamic driving situations. Powering the vehicle is a long-range, high-performance battery, contributing to the EV’s impressive driving capabilities.
Lamborghini emphasizes that the Lanzador EV’s software and control systems are as crucial as its hardware. The interior cockpit is designed to provide a pilot-like experience, with active controls on the sports steering wheel and dual digital screens. The Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) driving dynamics control system and the ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) system work in harmony to optimize performance and efficiency.
Set to enter production in 2028, the Lanzador EV will join Lamborghini’s lineup as the brand’s first all-electric vehicle. Furthermore, Lamborghini plans to electrify its entire lineup by the end of 2024, with the introduction of hybrid versions of the Huracan and Urus models in the near future.
