Lamborghini is gearing up to introduce an electric supercar concept on August 18th as part of the Monterey Car Week. In anticipation of this event, the renowned Italian automaker shared a teaser image across its social media platforms. Though the image doesn’t reveal much, it maintains the iconic Lamborghini silhouette.

While the upcoming reveal is in the form of a concept, it will provide a preliminary glimpse into Lamborghini’s interpretation of an electric vehicle. This unveiling comes after a two-year span during which Lamborghini outlined its progressive electrification strategy, set to unfold in two distinct stages over the next ten years. The initial phase involves the introduction of hybrid models across its entire lineup by the close of 2024. Subsequently, Lamborghini has plans to debut its maiden all-electric model sometime before the decade draws to a close.

This implies that the Aventador, Huracán, and Urus models will see the introduction of plug-in hybrid versions within the next three years, alongside the limited-production Sián roadsters.

Furthermore, a brand-new, fully electric fourth model is set to be unveiled by Lamborghini sometime before 2030.

The concept, set to be unveiled later this week, is expected to offer insights into this enigmatic fourth model. Lamborghini’s initial hybrid model, the 2024 Revuelto, has already given us a preview. This hybrid boasts a robust 813hp output from its 6.5-liter V12 engine, complemented by three electric motors, resulting in a combined 1,015cv (a metric unit of horsepower equivalent to 1,001hp). This hybrid variant is slated to take the place of the Aventador in Lamborghini’s vehicle lineup.

A Fusion of Power and Electric Precision

The Revuelto employs a trio of electric motors: one located at the rear, and the other two positioned at each front wheel. These motors draw power from a compact 3.8kWh battery pack situated in the vehicle’s central tunnel. Although relatively modest by electric vehicle standards, this battery configuration enables the Revuelto to achieve an all-electric range of up to 10km or 6.2 miles.

The Electric Transition

Lamborghini, akin to other sports car manufacturers, has been cautious in embracing electric propulsion systems. The concern has been centered around not alienating its devoted clientele, who have a strong affinity for the visceral experience offered by powerful V8 and V12 engines, as well as the exhilarating acceleration they provide. Nevertheless, emerging players like Croatia’s Rimac have surged ahead, exemplified by models such as the Nevera, capable of accelerating from zero to 60mph in under two seconds.
