Lamborghini will preview its first series-produced electrical automobile (and the fourth member of its vary) with an idea scheduled to interrupt cowl on August 18. It is preserving particulars concerning the mannequin below wraps, nevertheless it printed a darkish teaser picture that hints at what’s within the pipeline.
Posted on the Italian model’s social media channels, the image exhibits what appears to be like like the highest of both a low-slung sedan or an enormous coupe. We’re not 100% positive what we’re but, however we’re almost sure that it is not a crossover. As an alternative, the silhouette vaguely reminds us of the Estoque, a close-to-production design research that might have morphed right into a high-performance sedan however in the end remained an idea.
Take into account that that is pure hypothesis; Lamborghini’s picture does not present shut strains so we do not know whether or not the idea — whose title hasn’t been revealed but — has two or 4 doorways. Formally, firm executives have described the automobile as “a grand tourer with a 2+2 seating structure” developed to fill the hole between super-sport vehicles just like the Revuelto and the Urus SUV. It would provide “comfy” rear seats.
If it is a coupe, the fourth mannequin will land in a really small phase. Whereas two-door fashions with a 2+2 structure have been fairly frequent within the Nineteen Sixties and the Nineteen Seventies, even within the Lamborghini vary, they’ve all however disappeared lately. A number of the extra notable torchbearers left embrace the second-generation Maserati GranTurismo, which can also be supplied with an electrical powertrain, and the Bentley Continental GT.
As for the drivetrain, we’ll must be affected person to learn the way Lamborghini plans to ship an electrical mannequin that is as partaking to drive as its gasoline-powered vehicles. The model has burdened that its fourth mannequin will arrive as a standalone automobile, so it will not land as an electrified model of, say, the Huracán’s alternative. We’re betting will probably be electric-only; we’re not anticipating this Bull will provide a number of powertrain choices.
Extra particulars about Lamborghini’s subsequent idea will emerge within the coming days, and its unveiling will happen on August 18. Nevertheless, word that what you will see in Monterey in a few days is not essentially what you will see in showrooms when manufacturing begins later within the 2020s.
