Lamborghini Makes Their First Electric Car Official
The Italian supercar company has shared details on their first battery-electric model due 2030, in line with their new EV roadmap.
- Development of the teased two-door four-seat GT EV has already begun.
- Their Direzione Cor Tauri plans look to reduce the firm’s impact on the environment.
- Lamborghini will switch to electric powertrains in key product lines by the end of 2024.
The number of classic supercar companies making an electric pledge grows today.
Lamborghini, arguably the most popular of them all, has today teased what we can all expect from them in the coming years. This includes a plug-in revamp of current models, culminating in the release of their first all-electric model.
“Lamborghini’s electrification plan is a change of course that was made necessary by a radically changed context, in which we want to give our contribution by continuing to reduce environmental impact with tangible projects.”
— Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini
Development of the all-electric model is currently in the works, although the details are scarce. The vehicle is due to launch in 2030, so no final decisions have been made just yet.
What we do know is Lamborghini is looking at two-door GT’s that retain the streamlined elegance of current/past models.
Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini, said: “I gave my designers a clear statement that this car has to be recognised as something different to what we’ve done before… It has to be recognisable as a Lamborghini, but it also has to show a new way of designing cars.”
Greener plans will shift gears for Lamborghini
The outlined Direzione Cor Tauri roadmap includes a £1.3 billion investment in PHEV tech, amongst other exciting tidbits. It’s a three-phase plan that takes us all the way into the second half of the decade.
Here’s a quick summary:
- 2021-2022: A celebration of the internal combustion engine, paying tribute to the history of the Lamborghini brand.
- By 2024: The launch of Lamborghini’s first hybrid model in 2023, and a complete plug-in overhaul of their entire range by 2024.
- Endgame (2030): Lamborghini launches their first all-electric car able to guarantee sustainable performance.
We know; it’s a lot to unpack, but it all sounds quite promising — especially when you consider the potential of PHEV versions of the Aventador, Huracan and Urus.
They’ll face heavy competition from the likes of Ferrari, who recently announced its first EV by 2025. And then there’s Lotus, who plans to sell only electric cars by 2028.
