While Lamborghini's first fully battery-powered car doesn't arrive until 2028, the Italian marque has given us a preview of what to expect with the Lanzador concept. And nothing about it is boring. The electric 2+2 GT features high ground clearance and more than a few SUV cues, though its supercar curves and three-door body style keep it from being a Urus look-alike. Lambo's first EV will be unique to say the least, and the brand says that only minimal changes will separate this concept from the production Lanzador.





Despite an indecisive look that blurs the lines between GT and crossover, the Lanzador maintains ties to its maker with its very Lambo-like front end, featuring a menacing face that faintly resembles a large variety of the brand's supercars. The rest of the concept resembles a taller version of the high-riding Huracan Sterrato supercar, but with a touch of futurism.


The cabin goes all in on the futuristic look, though it remains to be seen how much of that will make it into production. It appears quite bare bones, with a high-mounted, bridge-style center stack that stretches from the dashboard to the console. There are two displays burrowed deeply into each side of the dash, with one mounted behind the flat-bottomed steering wheel and the other serving as a passenger screen. This layout is not dissimilar to Ferrari's own SUV, the Purosangue. Lamborghini didn't skimp on sustainability either, with most of the cabin's materials sourced locally from Italy. The seats, which consist of nylon, feature threads made of recycled plastic, while hidden components that would normally use plastic are derived from recycled 3D-printed plastic. The concept's plentiful carbon fiber pieces consist of repurposed materials as well, and Lamborghini even went as far as to tan the leather with water reused from olive oil plants.





Despite a lack of rear doors, Lamborghini still ensures that the Lanzador is a very practical take on the average 2+2 GT. Aside from its SUV-like stance, there's a cavernous cargo area beneath the large rear hatch, and even more storage space is available in the frunk. At the front of the cabin, the skinny center stack makes way for a generous open storage area, and the two rear seats can be folded down to expand the aforementioned rear cargo area.



While we don't know exactly what powers the Lanzador––we'll have to wait until its 2028 launch to find out––Lamborghini did mention some impressive features coming to its first EV. For one, it will have full-time all-wheel drive, with two motors for each axle. That last part sneakily points to a quad-motor setup, featuring two motors for the front and back, which means the Lanzador will generate an insane 1,341 horsepower. Lamborghini also says the rear axle will feature some sort of torque vectoring system, in order to control where all that power is sent. The EV's driving dynamics will also be managed using the company's Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) tech. While the system already exists in some of the brand's vehicles, the Lanzador introduces additional sensors to adjust the car's on-road character for each individual driver. Other performance features include an active suspension, along with active aero parts that change based on driving mode.





While the Lanzador's 2028 production launch seems like lightyears away from now, the wild concept unveiled in Monterey provides a very close preview of what's to come. But until the first silent Lamborghinis begin whirring on public roads, the Italian automaker plans to offer nothing but hybrids by the end of 2024, and hybrid tech will remain its primary focus well into the decade's end. The Lanzador will be joined by an all-electric successor to the Urus in 2029, though Lamborghini doesn't plan on introducing electric supercars until much later.

Lamborghini Lanzador Concept Is A Wild, 1,341-HP Preview Of Company's First EV

The high-riding concept will translate closely into Lambo's first production EV in 2028.
