In May Lamborghini presented its Direzione Cor Tauri plan, with which it established the roadmap towards the electrification of its range of sports vehicles. The electric car has reached the highest segments of the premium ranges before the utility ones, although its implantation among traditional supercar manufacturers is still taking time.
But the path of the electric car is unstoppable and brands with a history like the one accumulated by the Italian firm Sant’Agata Bolognese will sooner or later end up joining extreme zero-emission sports mobility.
Of course, brands specialized in this type of high-performance and highly exclusive car will undergo a more difficult transition than other manufacturers, although the result may be surprising.
The first electric Lamborghini
In a recent interview with the channel Yahoo! Finance, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has given sharper details of the future of the Modena shape and when the signing of the bull will leap the electric car.
Speaking to the Internet channel, Winkelmann indicated that Lamborghini will present a new model, thereby increasing its offer to four exclusive cars, of which ” two will be sports cars and two will be more versatile .”
The most sporty and performance Lamborghini will be plug-in hybrids. For their part, the so-called ” multipurpose ” will be 100% electric.
With this information in hand, the first zero-emission Lamborghini will be available during the second half of the decade, between 2027 and 2028.
Will it be an SUV?
Although the CEO did not want to give many details in-depth, the multipurpose Lamborghini may be a successor to the Urus SUV or even a direct competitor to the Audi e-Tron GT or Porsche Taycan. Something that fits with the Volkswagen Group’s policy of using one platform to deliver multiple cars with different logos on the hood.
The truth of the leaks made public by the leader of the Italian firm in German hands is that the Lamborghini range will have four different models with two well-differentiated engines, although all of them electrified in one way or another.
The strategy to be followed for the 1930s will be dictated by competition and the ability to find a niche in the world of high-end and performance electric cars, where competition is increasingly fierce.
