What are the four pillars of electric supercars? Lamborghini CEO sketches
At a time when the automotive world is racing with electrification, supercars are no exception. Lamborghini is a pioneer in the super car segment of the industry, aiming to lead the wave. In an attempt to do just that, the Italian car brand launched the Sian FKP 37 three years ago, which was the brand’s first hybrid model. Since then, Lamborghini has been working on hybrid concepts more often. Now, the automaker’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann has told Autocar that the raging bull brand will continue to bring electric models to market in an effort to lead the supercar segment. electricity.

The lamborghini The CEO also outlined four key pillars that will be crucial to the future of electric supercars. These include design, performance and sound. “There are four pillars in my head. Design and performance, these are the things we’ve always done. The other two? It’s cognitive performance. So how do you feel, how do you participate. Like a pilot. The rest is sound. These are the most challenging, so the sound is something that we have to see what’s going to happen. I don’t want to say it was easy – it would be different today,” he told the British publication.
Lamborghini is currently working on its next hybrid model, the successor to the now discontinued Aventador with an electrified powertrain. The automaker has also confirmed that by the end of 2024, its entire lineup will be electrified, and by the end of the decade it will deliver an all-electric model. However, despite being an all-electric model, the e-supercar will continue to feature Lamborghini’s signature look, performance and sound, as the automaker’s CEO has suggested.
Speaking of enhancing the performance of upcoming hybrid models, Winkelmann said the automaker is in the early stages of development for that. “We worked on cognitive performance. I think the software will take important steps to help us improve lateral acceleration and the direction of machine-driver contact. These are paramount to success,” he said.
