Lamborghini is reportedly considering introducing a fourth model to its portfolio, which could take the form of an electric grand tourer.

The grand tourer will, according to Autocar UK, use the J1 platform underpinning the Porsche Taycan, ditching the V8, V10 and V12s currently powering the rest of the line-up in favour of a set of electric motors. The publication says Lamborghini won’t settle for a car that needs more than three seconds to hit 100km/h. Styling will apparently be inspired by the Estoque concept with a “more mature design,” closer to the Urus rather than the Huracan or Aventador.

According to Lamborghini R&D boss, Maurizio Reggiani, the car could hit markets in 2025.

Meanwhile, Lamborghini is currently building the limited Sian, which combines supercapacitors with the Aventador’s V12 to create the brand’s first electrified model. For those wanting a more practical Lambo hybrid, the Urus is scheduled to go plug-in at some point soon as well.
