During this year's Monterey Car Week in California, which takes place from August 18 to 20, Lamborghini intends to unveil a prototype of its upcoming initial electric vehicle (EV). The introduction of the hybrid Revuelto was a significant venture into electrification for the renowned Italian supercar manufacturer. Furthermore, it is anticipated that within a short span of time, the company would release its inaugural fully electric Lamborghini model. However, preceding this event, the Italian manufacturer intends to showcase an electric vehicle concept car at the next Monterey Car Week. This unveiling will mark the debut of the initial prototype belonging to Lamborghini's fourth series production car. This development occurs within a few weeks subsequent to the company's official announcement of the forthcoming release of a novel electric 2+2 grand tourer, anticipated to be made available for purchase at an unspecified point in 2028. The design and technology behind the forthcoming electric concept vehicle are still mysteries. However, if this is a sneak peek at a future production vehicle, it may be a four-seat GT in keeping with recent reports.

Upcoming Lamborghini Cars

Next-generation Lamborghini would follow the Terzo Millenio as the company's second all-electric concept and add to the company's lineage of four-seat concept cars, which includes the Estoque and the Asterion, both of which were introduced relatively recently. CEO Stephan Winkelmann has stated that the new electric Lamborghini will not be built on a completely Lamborghini-designed basis. Instead, it is going to become an EV platform for other Volkswagen Group brands like Bentley and Porsche, thanks to the sharing of components across the group.

The Urus and other next Lamborghini cars are not likely to go totally electric very soon, but they will use hybrid technology. By 2024, both the Urus and the new Huracan should include plug-in hybrid drivetrains. The next-generation Urus won't be able to make the switch to all-electric power until 2029. On Wednesday, August 16, Monterey Car Week officially begins, and the Lamborghini concept is scheduled to make its debut on the event's lawn on Friday, August 18.

Lamborghini Revuelto Sold Out Until 2026

Lamborghini Revuelto

The Revuelto, the newest flagship supercar from Italian sports vehicle manufacturer Lamborghini, is completely sold out until 2026. Lamborghini's Revuelto, which debuted in March 2023 as the Aventador's replacement, is the first of the firm's vehicles to include a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. The company intends to roll out hybrid technology across the board by late 2024.

The Revuelto, according to the Italian maker, can reach speeds of over 350km/h and can reach 100km/h in under 2.5 seconds. All by itself, the automaker's most powerful 12-cylinder engine can produce 825bhp at 9,250rpm and 725Nm of peak torque at 6,750rpm. The plug-in hybrid system includes a lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of 3.8 kWh and three electric motors, two of which are mounted on the front axle and one of which is mounted above the gearbox. 

A full charge of the battery pack from the V12 may be accomplished via the rear-mounted motor in a stated 6 minutes. This allows for an all-electric driving range of about 10 kilometres. An 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, placed transversely behind the V12 engine, handles gearbox duties and is coupled to the hybrid powertrain.
