Lamborghini previously announced that it planned for its first fully-electric model to go into production before 2030. Today the carmaker unveiled what its first EV could look like with the Lamborghini Lanzador Concept, presented at this year’s The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering.
The Lanzador envisions a high-riding two-door four-seater with styling elements borrowed from multiple of its current production cars. As its form factor suggests, the Lanzador aims to capitalize on the added ride height of an Urus while maintaining a sportier driving experience. As such, it will position itself as a fourth product line for the carmaker, aiming to fill the GT-sized gap left between its supercars and SUV.
Aside from previewing the first fully electric Lamborghini, the Lanzador aims to showcase features expected to reach production models in the coming years, starting with Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI), a driving dynamic control system. Its goal is to analyze its owner’s driving style and adapt various car parameters accordingly. It draws information from a new group of sensors placed throughout the car.
These sensors will also support its new ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) system for more precise aerodynamic adjustments. Given that it’s electric, the Lanzador can cycle between high and low downforce modes, maximizing performance or range given the driving scenario. In the Lanzador, these aero elements include an active splitter, shutters in its front grille, and louvers in its wheel arches.
Power comes from two electric motors, reaching all four wheels. Lamborghini has yet to publish how many horses it’ll develop or what range to expect from a production version. However, the carmaker’s electric GT does benefit from components found in the Urus, like its air suspension and rear axle steering. Given its stature, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Lanzador also inherited off-road modes like the Urus on the count of its adjustable suspension.
The Lanzador also draws inspiration from the carmaker’s current lineup from a visual perspective. Its front end, for example, is reminiscent of the Urus’ as is its roofline, while its slim lighting elements look closer to those found in Lamborghini’s supercar lineup. While the Lanzador seats four, it only features two doors, albeit very long, allowing it to retain a sportier aesthetic than a traditional GT.
Inside, a sizable center console divides the driver and passenger, housing the few remaining mechanical buttons and switches. Two screens sit in front of the occupants, one serving as an instrument cluster and the other showing vehicle information and new entertainment features. The interior overall is very minimalistic, especially for a Lamborghini. Its steering wheel is thin and virtually button-free, while its slim seats offer minimal padding.
Since the Lanzador is an EV, Lamborghini also wants to implement more sustainable materials for its interior cabin featuring wool, recycled materials and 3D-printed recycled fibers. Its leather is tanned using a byproduct of the olive oil industry, a process that requires less water than traditional tanning but yields just as high-quality leather.
Lamborghini aims to fully electrify its model lineup by 2024. We’ve already seen this with the hybrid Revuelto, which will be followed shortly by the Huracan replacement and an updated Urus. The production GT the Lanzador envisions is already scheduled to enter production this decade, with an expected launch date of 2028. While Lamborghini has never said it will go fully electric, adding an EV to its lineup will further diversify its portfolio.
