Lamborghini has laid out a plan to hybridize its entire model line-up by 2024 and later announced that it will be unveiling its first pure electric model by 2028. The Italian firm was also planning to give all of us a glimpse of the concept of its upcoming all-electric model at the Monterey Car Week soon. But prior to the event, leaked images of the car dubbed the Lamborghini Lanzador have been leaked online.
Just a couple of days ago, Lamborghini released a teaser image of the concept car, showing us a vague silhouette of the upcoming model. But now, we get to see the concept car in its full form, albeit in grainy pictures, along with the Lamborghini Lanzador name on its number plates.
On a side note, the name Lanzador is a Spanish word that means pitcher, thrower, and bowler, so yeah. But still, this is just a concept model, and there’s a high chance that it might come with a completely different nameplate when it is officially launched in 2028.
And just in case you truly haven’t noticed just yet, surprise, it is an SUV. But wait a minute, didn’t the company promise that their first pure electric model will not be an SUV but a 2+2 GT? They did, but well, one could argue that the Lanzardo isn’t exactly a full-blown SUV.
Still, it seems like the design team took their original grand tourer plan and mixed it together with an SUV design, to get the best of both worlds we presume. And that resulted in this 2+2 GT-inspired SUV.
Due to its 2+2 grand tourer body style, the Lamborghini Lanzador sports a roofline that is longer than the usual Lamborghini supercars we have been familiar with. It also has the same raised ride height just like the marque’s limited edition Huracan Sterrato rally supercar.
It comes with split headlights, alongside rear lights which design reminds us of the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4. Other parts of its design like the front bumper, bonnet, fenders, wheel arches, and wheels, all feature Lamborghini’s design language DNA.
The Lamborghini Lanzador also features a glass roof to create a sense of airiness. Another interesting bit present here is despite the Lanzador being an EV, it still comes with the brand’s signature button that reads START, ENGINE, and STOP.
Lamborghini has taken quite some time transitioning into EVs, which is understandable, as its success was mainly built on its V10 and V12-powered models. At the end of the day, nothing has been confirmed by Lamborghini regarding their upcoming EV model just yet. For more official details on the car, we will just have to wait for what the firm has for us this coming August.
So what do you think of the Lamborghini Lanzador? Is it what you expected? Or are you surprised to see yet another SUV? Let us know in the comments.
