Lamborghini’s Biggest Electric Supercar Challenge Isn’t What You Think — Exclusive Interview
It’s a spotlight that appears more and more prescient given how the electrical automobile world is creating. EVs are effectively previous needing to show they’re able to outrageous efficiency: Tesla’s Model S Plaid can outrun hypercars, and the freshly-announced Lucid Air Sapphire guarantees to be even quicker. Even extra attainable fashions can boast horsepower and acceleration numbers that after would’ve required keys to a sports activities automotive, although.

The car cannot be slow. But to have always this number crunching, it’s the wrong way.”
