Lamborghini Lanzador EV Concept: Unleashing 1,341 HP Powerhouse!
Despite Lamborghini's history of creating high-powered V12 supercars, the brand is shifting its focus to an electric future showcased by the Lanzador concept. More than just a design experiment, this 2+2 Lanzador provides an early glimpse of Lamborghini's upcoming electric vehicle set to debut in 2028, offering an alternative to other luxury EVs.
Competing against rivals like the Ferrari Purosangue and Rolls-Royce Spectre, the Lanzador aims to combine all-weather performance resembling the former and the impressive presence of the latter. With its daring design, futuristic interior, and notably, an impressive 1,341 horsepower, the Lanzador ensures its compatibility with Lamborghini's lineup, regardless of V12 traditions.
The Lanzador concept lacks comprehensive details about its electric powertrain beneath its bold exterior. Lamborghini has disclosed that it will have dual motors producing high output for all-wheel drive. These motors will be fueled by an unspecified "high-performance battery ensuring extended range," although specifics are scarce.
Notably, the Lanzador will feature 1 megawatt of power, equivalent to a four-digit horsepower value. To manage its power, the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva system will be in place, allowing precise control of aerodynamic components for optimal wind resistance and enhanced downforce in sportier driving modes.
The Lamborghini Lanzador incorporates an active suspension system featuring air springs, adaptive dampers, and rear-axle steering to enhance performance and stability. Additionally, accurate torque distribution between the front and rear motors aids in sharper turn-in and well-balanced handling by sending power both to the right and left sides.
The debut of Lamborghini's inaugural all-electric production vehicle is slated for 2028. Developed under the Porsche-led SSP Sport platform, it will also underpin upcoming Taycan, Panamera, and the Urus' electric successor. Lamborghini emphasizes the technologically advanced, dependable, and enjoyable driving experience of the new GT coupe's platform.
Manufacture of the production version of the Lanzador will take place near the company's headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese, with plans to recruit more staff to facilitate the EV's development and production. While the exact price is far from settled, considering the current Lamborghini models priced well above $200,000 and the Revuelto exceeding $600,000, it's unlikely the Lanzador will come with a low price tag.
The release of the Lamborghini Lanzador EV is just as fascinating as that of the Acura NSX EV. The question now is whether these electric vehicles will actually be produced. We eagerly await to see what happens next.
