For months, there has been talk of what Lamborghini’s first 100% electric vehicle will be like. Some of its main characteristics were confirmed on different occasions by its directors. Both Rouven Mohr and Stephan Winkelmann put us on the trail of this future model, stating that it would be a vehicle with the capacity to accommodate four adults and that it would not be an SUV. With just a few hours left for its official launch in the form of a pre-production prototype, we can already enjoy some images, the product of a leak, of this Lamborghini Lanzador.
As can be seen, it is a vehicle that, although it has a height that seems much higher than that of its sports cars, such as the Lamborghini Huracán or Lamborghini Revuelto, does not have the traditional proportions of an SUV-type body. It seems to be halfway between both formats -we should consider it a crossover, then-, because it does not appear to be a Grand Tourer to use either. It can be seen that it is a two-door car —three since it has a tailgate for its trunk—, with a 2+2-type interior configuration.
The closeness of its design to the Lamborghini Urus probably prevents us, at first glance, from separating its image from that of the Italian SUV. The Y-shaped LED headlights are an element of continuity with the rest of the range of the manufacturer from Sant’Agata Bolognese.
The muscular lines of the wheel arches, its numerous edges, and the narrowing in the area of the doors, like bites, are also keys that unmistakably identify it as another product of the Lamborghini that we have known for 60 years.
In the leaked images, it is also seen how its two individual rear seats can be completely folded to expand its cargo space… rear. Because, like a good electric vehicle, it also has a small compartment under the front hood, which Lamborghini has decided to include a set of exclusive travel bags. Likewise, its occupants would benefit from the light provided by its glass roof, which counteracts the limited glass surface that we perceive in its side-view windows.
Of course, we do not have technical details related to the platform used or the configuration of its propulsion system. In this sense, it is believed that the future production model derived from this Lamborghini Lanzador —which could change its name by then— will be one of the beneficiaries of the next SSP platform —Scalable Systems Platform—, which will be the sole successor of the MEB and PPE that currently support the different electric vehicles of the German conglomerate. Oliver Blume, executive director of Volkswagen and Porsche, came to affirm in his day that this would allow the installation of power trains of up to 1,700 CV.
The presentation of this prototype is scheduled for within a few hours in Pebble Beach, at which time perhaps some more details about Lamborghini’s future electric first will be revealed. Be that as it may, its production will not start before the year 2028, when the battery successor to the current Lamborghini Urus is also expected to be ready.
