The Lamborghini Lanzandor prototype, which is the precursor to the first electric Lambo in history, has leaked online the day before its official premiere at Monterey.
It is a 2+2 seater sportscar with crossover elements, featuring a raised ground clearance. Its design seems to combine aesthetic elements from the Urus and Sian, while the interior resembles a fighter aircraft with a unique innovation in the connection between the dashboard and the central console, and a digital screen for each front passenger.
Lamborghini had already announced that it would present a prototype at this year’s Monterey Car Week in California, USA, on August 18. One day before its official premiere, the name Lanzandor was revealed, and its official photos leaked.
The Lamborghini Lanzandor will be produced in limited quantities, for a select few customers of the brand. The same policy was followed by the Sant’ Agata company with the Sian, which opened up new design and technological horizons for the upcoming Revuelto, successor to the Aventador.
In fact, Lamborghini has been following this exact strategy since its founding in 1963: it develops and presents experimental cars that help evolve the production cars that will come in the future. And the Lanzandor is the technological and design prototype of the first purely electric Lamborghini in history.
After the production car that will result from the Lanzandor, Lamborghini will reveal the purely electric successor to the Urus SUV in 2029. Thus, by 2030, Lamborghini will have two electric cars and two electrified cars, the recently unveiled plug-in hybrid Revuelto and the hybrid successor to the Huracan.
All this strategic plan of the company is called “Direzione Cor Tauri” and also includes the arrival of the hybrid version of the Urus by the end of 2024. Therefore, by 2025, Lamborghini will have reduced the CO2 emissions of its range by half compared to 2022.
The first purely electric Lambo – the one based on the Lanzandor – will be the fourth model in the company’s lineup. As CEO Stephan Winkelmann says, the electrification of the company’s cars has been accepted by our customer base. Even the majority of hardcore fans say they have embraced our vision. Which, in turn, opens the door to a new generation of customers looking for pure electrification.
