Lamborghini has said that it is working on its first-ever electric car, which will debut in 2028. Originally announced in May 2021, the Italian supercar manufacturer has confirmed that its first pure electric vehicle will be a 2+2 grand tourer. The car will be sold strictly as an EV, claimed the automaker. However, the raging bull logoed supercar brand has not revealed further details about the upcoming pure electric grand tourer.
Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann has previously hinted that the first-ever pure electric car from the company will come with more ground clearance than the automaker’s sports cars. He also said that the ground clearance of the upcoming EV will be less than the Lamborghini Urus SUV. The head honcho of the automaker further stated that the car will be much more daily usable than the Huracan and Revuelto, but will not be a crossover.

Although it’s too early to talk about the technical specifications of the upcoming electric car, Lamborghini CEO has already hinted it won’t ride on an all-Lamborghini platform. Instead, this EV will benefit from the synergies of the Volkswagen Group, he said. For example, the Urus is mechanically related to the Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, Audi Q8, and the Volkswagen Touareg.
As the focus on electrified powertrains has been growing across the world, Lamborghini is also investing in such greener powertrain technology. Lamborghini’s flagship model, the Reveulto, already has a PHEV setup based around a new V12 engine. Winkelmann has divulged the plan saying that the company is slated to bring the Urus S/Performante and Huracan replacement with plug-in hybrid powertrains in 2024. The Urus successor is slated to come in 2029 in the form of an all-electric car.
