Lamborghini confirms its first all-electric car, a 2+2 grand tourer, to be released in 2028.
The electric vehicle will have “more ground clearance” than sports cars and be highly usable for daily driving.
Leveraging synergies within the Volkswagen Group, the EV won’t ride on an all-Lamborghini platform.
Lamborghini, the iconic Italian automaker, has confirmed its plans to introduce its first-ever electric car, a 2+2 grand tourer, in 2028. Hidden within a press release announcing the sold-out production of the Revuelto for over two years, the news marks a significant shift for Lamborghini, choosing to develop an electric vehicle GT rather than a crossover.
While additional details about the EV were not disclosed in the press release, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has previously provided insights into the upcoming model’s characteristics. The electric grand tourer will feature “more ground clearance” than Lamborghini’s sports cars but less than the Urus SUV. Winkelmann emphasized that the vehicle will be “much more daily usable” than the Huracan and Revuelto but confirmed it will not be a crossover.
Although technical specifications remain under wraps, Winkelmann hinted that the new EV will not ride on an all-Lamborghini platform. Instead, it will leverage the “synergies of the Volkswagen Group,” similar to how the Urus shares its mechanical components with the Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7/Q8, and the VW Touareg.
The electric grand tourer is scheduled to follow the introduction of the Urus S/Performante and the Huracan replacement, both of which are planned to feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain in 2024. Currently, Lamborghini’s flagship model, the Revuelto, already offers a plug-in hybrid setup centered around a new V12 engine. After the launch of the four-seater grand tourer in 2029, Lamborghini intends to release the Urus successor exclusively as an EV, a plan that was confirmed during an interview with the Lamborghini CEO earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Lamborghini has closed the order books for the Huracan and the ICE-only Urus, as the automaker has already secured buyers for the remaining production run. Those interested in the Revuelto will have to wait until the second half of 2025 for new orders to be fulfilled. Additionally, Lamborghini revealed that the vehicle succeeding the Huracan will not have an Audi counterpart, as the R8 will be discontinued without a direct replacement. The company has expressed its financial capability to independently develop the new supercar, thanks to its robust profitability.
As Lamborghini shifts its focus towards electric mobility with the introduction of its 2+2 grand tourer, automotive enthusiasts eagerly await further details on the design, performance, and range of the company’s groundbreaking EV. With the promise of practicality and daily usability, coupled with Volkswagen Group’s expertise, Lamborghini’s electric venture is poised to make a significant impact on the luxury EV market when it debuts in 2028.
