Lamborghini has a card of endurance and electric cars


By 2035 car manufacturers wanting to sell new cars in Europe will have to offer only electric models. If this recent decision of the European Commission has caused a lot of ink to flow on the old continent, it is because not everyone shares the same faith in the ecological demands of Brussels.

This is especially the case for luxury goods, which are closely linked to sports cars. Among them, some are more open to change than others. But for Lamborghini, an electric car is still a distant project. The Italian brand, which today belongs to the Volkswagen group, knows very well that one day or another it will produce a car without a single drop of gasoline inside.

Lamborghini wants to provide sustainable energy space

But the longer he can wait, the better. According to the big boss of the brand, Stephan Winkelmann Lamborghini prefers to “wait and see”. In particular, he hopes that organic and environmentally responsible fuels will yield results.

Currently it is the Stuttgart company, Porsche, which is also owned by Volkswagen, which is testing this new fuel. At the same time Winkelmann said “not being able to imagine Lamborghini producing only electric cars”. That’s not to say the brand won’t do it, but the heart won’t be put into the work.

While Lamborghini’s neighbor, Ferrari, the brand’s historic competitor, is preparing the first electric car in its history, the research is not at the same level as the Lambo and the comment “missing the running train” does not seem to bother the management. Italian luxury brand. Let’s hope for the financial health of this company that Winkelmann knows what he’s doing.

In a recent speech, the company’s boss explained that he had until 2036 to offer new 100% electric cars to his customers. According to him, time is not great and Lamborghini can continue to produce hot cars for a few more years, leaving the market to develop.

Volkswagen and Lamborghini: two opposing visions

However it is surprising to see how much Lamborghini, which however belongs to the Volkswagen group, has a different vision of the same thing as the parent company. Indeed, among the Germans, everyone has faith in the electric car. Diesel is finally over and the brand wants to keep its place of choice in the world market, with the Japanese taking up more and more space.

Therefore, the choice of electricity is mandatory. To succeed in its transformation, the German group, which includes brands such as Audi, Skoda and Seat, will generate more than 100 billion dollars in the coming years. Total madness, in the antipodes of Winkelmann’s thoughts.
