Lamborghini is gearing up to electrify the automotive world once again. On August 18th, during the much-anticipated Monterey Car Week, the luxury automaker will pull the curtains back on its latest creation: an electric supercar concept.
This announcement comes hot on the heels of Lamborghini's introduction of the Revuelto plug-in hybrid just a few months ago.
While the teaser image provided by Lamborghini shows only the silhouette of the upper body, it's clear that the brand is ready to make its first foray into the world of fully-electric supercars.
The electric supercar concept is not just a glimpse into Lamborghini's vision of the future—it's a key step in the brand's electrification strategy.
The Italian automaker outlined its electrification plans two years ago, charting a course that unfolds in two distinct phases over the next decade.
One thing that is certain is that this forthcoming electric concept will mark the beginning of a new chapter for Lamborghini.
Unlike previous models that adapted an existing design to an electric powertrain, this new vehicle will be an all-new addition to the lineup.
Beyond the initial excitement, this electric concept will offer valuable insights into the design direction Lamborghini is taking for its first fully-electric production car. Although Lamborghini previously projected a potential production timeline around 2028 for its inaugural electric vehicle, this concept will give enthusiasts and experts alike a sneak peek into what's to come.
As part of its gradual transition to electrification, Lamborghini is also planning to introduce plug-in hybrid versions of its existing models—the Aventador, Huracán, and Urus—over the next three years.
Additionally, limited-production Sián roadsters are in the pipeline. By 2030, Lamborghini intends to roll out an entirely new, all-electric fourth model.
While Lamborghini is still holding back specifics about this concept, the company's CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, has hinted at its nature. Winkelmann mentioned that the initial electric offering will cater to practical daily use and emphasized that it won't be an SUV.
The anticipation surrounding this upcoming electric concept is palpable. As Lamborghini ventures into the realm of fully-electric vehicles, the concept's reveal will mark a significant milestone for the brand—one that signals a thrilling future for luxury electric performance cars.
