Lamborghini has defined a vision for its future products and then set the path to realize this vision. The “Terzo Millennio” is a summary of the challenges to be overcome to make a Lamborghini Elettrica. The first two steps, focused on the development of innovative energy storage systems and multifunctional materials for the vehicle’s body, will be discussed here. Lamborghini has partnered with the MIT Dinca Research Lab in the chemistry department and the MIT Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity in the department of mechanical engineering.
