LAMBORGHINI has unveiled an all-electric concept inspired by spaceships, with insane performance and updated interior design.
As more and more companies feel increasing pressure to go fully electric, high-performance automakers are finally bringing their EV variants to market.
The Lanzador, a grand tourer EV concept that Lamborghini unveiled during this year’s Monterey Car Week, was introduced in hopes of competing directly with the GT EV from Maserati and Ferrari.
“With this concept we are ushering in a new vehicle segment, the Ultra GT, which, thanks to groundbreaking technologies, is ready to offer customers a new and unparalleled driving experience that is quintessentially Lamborghini,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
What really expresses the otherworldly inspiration is the interior design, with a Y-shaped center console bridge and a slim dashboard that provides access to climate and media controls from the ‘pilot unit’.
Retractable displays make it even easier to customize the climate in your car while displaying information about speed, distance, entertainment and more, Engadget reported.
The Lanzador features Lamborghini’s new Integrated Control Version 3.0, which uses machine learning and AI to learn driving patterns and ambient temperature preferences, CNET reported.
The seat design closely resembles what you would expect on a spaceship, with the driver sitting comfortably in front of the controls and steering wheel.
Both driver and passenger sit low to the ground despite the car’s high ground clearance, and Lamborghini says the interior is “unexpectedly spacious.”
Lamborghini has been extremely cautious about releasing information about the vehicle – battery range, battery capacity, top speed and performance figures have all been left out.
All the media was left with was the promise that the Lanzador would have a “peak output of over one megawatt.”
To put it simply, the concept would easily be placed in the 1,000+ horsepower category.
Each axle would be powered by its own electric motor, making the Lanzador a silent four-wheel-drive killer that can tackle any terrain at any time.
Lamborghini has been careful to point out that the Lanzador is merely a concept and is a testament to what the company will produce in the future.
In 2021, the automaker announced a massive and expensive plan focused on introducing all-wheel-drive electric vehicles like the Lanzador and the Terzo Millennio concept.
The company said the Lanzador offers a preview of vehicles that will be released starting in 2028.
