Lamborghini's first electric set to be released in 2028
The CEO of the Italian Volkswagen Group Subsidiary, Stephan Winkleman told Auto Express that Lamborghini's first fully electric car will not replace any existing models and will be a fourth model alongside the Aventador, Huracán, and Urus.
Winkleman told Auto Express that the fourth model will be “more daily useable. This means a 2+2, two-door car with more ground clearance.”
The company will be spending €1.8 billion on a four-year electrification strategy. By 2024, the Urus, Aventador, and Huracán will all be hybrids.
Lamborghini’s chief technical officer, Rouven Mohr outlined the benefits of an electric Lamborghini when being interviewed by Auto Express at the Urus Performante launch, he explained some of the benefits the first Lamborghini EV will bring. “Some of our core pillars from the technology point of view are fitting perfectly with the electric world,” he said, adding, “If we speak about carbon-fibre function integration, battery integration as a structural part - this is something that allows you much more degrees of freedom from the design perspective in the sense of aerodynamics.”
Winkleman wants to keep hybrids around for as long as possible and pointed out that synthetic fuels, such as hydrogen might play a role in keeping them alive, which is why Lamborghini is working with Porsche, another Volkswagen Group subsidiary to produce its hybrids as they are “leaders for this.”
