It’s not official, but Lamborghini Vitola will probably be the first electric supercar for the brand. The all new all-electric supercar, called the Vitola, is probably built on Porsche’s J1 electric framework.
Recently, the car world was for thinking that the Mission E was going to be the only electric car that Porsche was planning. Many people believed that we could see everything from a Model 3 competitor to an electric SUV. Some of the Mission E’s electric technology will be picked up by another Volkswagen subsidiary, according to a German-language YouTube video by AutoBild. Surprisingly, that would be Lamborghini, one of the last automakers we’d expect to be interested in electrification.
Having Lamborghini Vitola on its agenda, the automaker will do anything to avoid turbochargers.
The video describes the electric hypercar, labeled as Vitola, as a machine that would ride on the Porsche Mission E’s J1 platform. It will also use the sedan’s fast-charging system, which works with the Mission E’s 800-volt battery to make charging times a light wind.
The owners who may want to take the hypercar to a track but don’t want to wait for a lengthy recharge after a few laps will want this car so badly. The Vitola will reportedly hit a 0-60 mph in a time of 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 186 mph. On the other hand, the Mission E makes a combined 600 horsepower using two electric motors, which flies the sedan from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
The Vitola will undoubtedly be lighter than the four-door Porsche only to reach its performance targets. It will need to gain more horsepower to keep it ahead of the competition. It’s unclear whether the Vitola will be an alternative to the Aventador/Huracan duo or another Lamborghini with an extremely limited production run, but we’d expect the latter since the brand is better known for its loud and boomingV10 and V12 engines than whisper quiet electric motors.
