Lamborghini Teases Debut of its First All-Electric Supercar
In the realm of high-performance supercars, the topic of electric vehicles has sparked varied reactions among manufacturers. However, the Lamborghini brand, a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, seems poised to embrace electric mobility wholeheartedly. Last year, Lamborghini pledged to create a more practical electric vehicle, and this week, it unveiled a silhouette of its upcoming electric car, set to make its debut by the end of the week.
The teaser image surfaced on Lamborghini’s social media page on X, formerly known as Twitter. The silhouette of the car, with a design that seemingly accommodates ample interior space for four passengers, bears a striking resemblance to the previously showcased Estoque concept. This concept had promised to be a long-distance grand touring (GT) car, capable of effortlessly covering vast distances at high speeds while providing superior comfort.
Lamborghini’s electric variant of such a vehicle is scheduled to be showcased this week, with plans for its commercial release not earlier than 2028, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the classic Espada model. The electric car will be built on the SSP Sport platform, currently under development by the sister brand Porsche. Lamborghini representatives assert that electric vehicles are capable of evoking emotions on par with their internal combustion engine (ICE) counterparts. In July of this year, the company bid farewell to its final ICE-powered supercar. From now on, all Lamborghini models will feature hybrid powertrains.
The brand’s first fully electric car is expected to enter the market in 2028. By that time, Lamborghini’s existing models, the Aventador, Huracan, and Urus, will also transition to hybrid platforms. This strategic move signifies Lamborghini’s commitment to balancing performance, luxury, and sustainability in the evolving landscape of the automotive industry.
