The Lamborghini Lanzador idea previews the model’s first EV, but it surely received’t arrive in showrooms for fairly some time but.
Revealed in a single day on the 2023 Pebble Seashore Concours d’Magnificence, the Lanzador is, as we noticed within the leaks the opposite day, a lifted coupe with crossover components, such because the wheel arch protectors.
Though the Lanzador appears to be like manufacturing prepared, the corporate’s fourth mannequin line received’t go into manufacturing till 2028, so rather a lot might change between from time to time. Regardless, the brand new mannequin will probably be constructed on the firm’s Sant’Agata Bolognese plant, which might want to bear important enlargement to make it match for this activity.
Standing 1.5 metres tall, the three-door Lanzador is round 300mm taller than a Huracan, however a bit extra squat than an everyday crossover.
Whereas the proportions are new to the model, all of the styling elements are straight from the corporate’s fashionable design language, and there are not any apparent hints there’s no V8, V10 or V12 engine on-board apart from the shortage of exhaust suggestions.
With the automotive’s launch an excellent 5 years away, Lamborghini didn’t present any particulars concerning the EV drivetrain, besides to say it can have “peak energy of over one megawatt”, and there will probably be a minimum of one motor for every axle with “e-torque vectoring” on the again.
A brand new model of the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) driving dynamics system screens the automotive’s numerous sensors, and is claimed to tailor the driving expertise to every driver.
This ties into the lively chassis system that features air suspension and four-wheel steering.
One other ingredient that’s adjusted on the fly is the Lanzador’s aerodynamics, with the automotive in a position to slip via the air with a minimal degree of disruption in each town and high-speed modes, and producing most downforce when attacking corners.
Adjustable components embrace entrance air shutters, a moveable splitter, wheelhouse louvres, an air curtain, air blades that stretch out of the perimeters and rear diffuser, and at last a “flow-through rear blown spoiler”.
The inside has a 2+2 seating format with rear seats that may be folded down, however not flat, to extend load area. The driving force and entrance passenger — pilot and co-pilot in Lamborghini-speak — sit low within the physique, and are separated by a skinny Y-shaped centre console bridge that homes a management knob for the infotainment and local weather programs.
As with many EV ideas, the supplies for the cabin have been chosen with sustainability in thoughts.
There’s Merino wool on the dashboard, seats and doorways, thread and seat foam created from recycled nylon or plastic, regenerated carbon for the centre console and doorways, and “sustainably tanned leather-based”.
