Lamborghini has released a teaser image of a concept it will reveal this month, which will preview its upcoming fourth model line.
The concept will be revealed at Monterey Car Week in California on August 18.
Lamborghini’s fourth model line is set to be an electric grand tourer, set to enter production in 2028, and this is the second teaser image of the vehicle.
Lamborghini has nevertheless left a lot to the imagination.
The brand’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann told CarExpert in July 2022 the electric model will have a “new body style, new tech, [and] lots of opportunities to remake Lamborghini” and will be “very recognisable but it should also be something completely new”.
After brightening the image, an exaggerated front wheel arch and shoulder line is evident, as is a dramatic roofline.
It’ll have a 2+2 seating configuration, though it’s unclear if the production car will be a low-slung grand tourer or more of a high-riding crossover.
From what little we can see, it’s not hard to see the visual link the Estoque concept – which debuted in 2008 – and the upcoming EV.
At this stage it’s unclear what platform will underpin this Lamborghini electric 2+2, but Mr Winkelmann previously told media, including InsideEVs, it won’t ride on a bespoke Lamborghini architecture. It will instead share components with other brands within the Volkswagen Group.
Lamborghini first revealed the 2+2 GT in its electrification plans in 2021.
During the announcement, the brand said the EV will be a new standalone model which will be released in the second half of the decade.
Once the Lamborghini electric 2+2 launches in 2028 it will have already been beaten to market by Ferrari. The Raging Bull’s arch-rival currently plans to introduce its first EV in 2025.
Lamborghini has plans to electrify its entire line-up by the end of 2024.
Lamborghini will introduce a V8 plug-in hybrid powertrain to its Urus SUV by the end of 2024. By 2029 the brand will make the model electric-only.
It claims its electrification plans will see it reduce its CO2 emissions by 50 per cent by 2025.
The company is investing €1.5 billion (A$2.34 billion) over a four-year period in what it’s billing its hybrid transition, which it says is the largest investment in its history.
