Lamborghini has unveiled an electric vehicle concept, called the Lanzador. The four-seater electric crossover SUV offers a sneak peek at the automaker's first entirely electric product, and its styling is similar to that of the company's current offerings. The Lanzador combines design elements from the Urus and the Sián into a cohesive whole. It is a high-riding grand tourer with massive 23-inch wheels. To compete with luxury vehicles like the Ferrari Purosangue and Rolls-Royce Spectre, Lancia's Lanzador must combine the all-weather performance of the former with the staggering characteristics and presence of the latter. Although Lamborghini is known for its V12-powered supercars, the company now plans to move towards an electric future with its Lanzador concept. Even being electric, its 1322bhp output, modern interior, and aggressive exterior design ensure it will fit well with the rest of Lamborghini's lineup.
Lamborghini Lanzador EV Conscept: Design
The Lanzador has a sleek profile and an impressive long range, which have been achieved through excellent aerodynamic engineering. It even allows the driver to alter the level of air resistance to suit their preferences. With 'new active aero elements in the front and rear to provide the greatest efficiency' in both Urban and Performance driving modes, this technology is identical to the one found in the Huracán Performante and Aventador SVJ. The chassis is active, and the driver may adjust the steering and air suspension from behind the wheel.
The concept for the hexagonal taillights with three LED components on each side was drawn from the Countach LPI 800-4. The large 23-inch wheels are equipped with aero blades and hexagonal elements, strategically designed to minimize wind resistance.
Because of its larger tyres, the Lanzador has a greater ground clearance than any other Lamborghini, save for the Urus SUV. At 1.5 metres (a little under five feet), the roof is noticeably shorter than the much larger Urus.
Lamborghini Lanzador EV Conscept: Powertrain
For now, no information has been revealed regarding the electric motor housed inside the unique exterior of this concept. According to Lamborghini, it will have an all-wheel drive, aided by two motors, each with a significantly high output. The motors will be powered by a high-performance battery designed to offer long range and optimal performance. However, specific details about the battery have not yet been revealed. Lamborghini, however, has revealed that the Lanzador will have a power output of 1 megawatt, which translates to a four-digit horsepower value.
Lamborghini claims that the Lanzador, although it is a concept vehicle, foreshadows their 2028 production line-up. The use of commodities like wool and recycled carbon in the production process demonstrates a genuine commitment towards environmental sustainability. The company has also expressed its intention to have an all-electric fleet by the year 2030.
When it comes to the design and manufacturing of its vehicles, Lamborghini seems to be eying the future.
