Set to be unveiled at one of the events during the 2023 Monterey Car Week presently taking place in California, Lamborghini’s prototype comes as part of the brand’s 60th-anniversary celebrations.
Honda HR-V Overview
Though the production version of the 2+2 EV will not see its launch until 2028, it won’t fall into the categories of supercar or SUV. Instead, it will represent a new body type, namely a grand tourer with 2+2 seating, becoming the fourth model line for Lamborghini.
The Italian automaker has previously ventured into 2+2 designs with models like the Espada, which will observe its own 60th anniversary in 2028.

Lamborghini had also nearly introduced a contemporary 2+2 vehicle last decade, having given a glimpse with the Estoque concept in 2008. The EV prototype’s roof and shoulder lines revealed in the teaser share a striking resemblance to the Estoque, potentially suggesting that the new EV may follow its design cues.
At the 2023 New York auto show in April, Lamborghini’s Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Federico Foschini disclosed to AutoMotorMart that the forthcoming EV will offer at least 300 miles of range and spacious rear seating suitable for adult passengers.
Details beyond this remain scarce, including information about the platform the EV will be based on. Speculation points to Lamborghini adopting a modular design from its parent company, Volkswagen Group. This could be the SSP Sport platform currently in development by Porsche, a platform that has already been confirmed for a three-row flagship SUV from Porsche due in 2027, and potentially Bentley’s first EV scheduled for 2026.
While it has not been officially confirmed, rumors are circulating that Lamborghini may introduce a second EV in 2029. This new electric SUV could serve as the successor to the Urus.
