Ferrari has confirmed that it is building an all-electric car, but it takes a few years to exist, with hopes that this plan will continue even after the company hires a new CEO.
And theHe said Acting CEO (John Elkann) John Elkann, at the annual general meeting this week: The automaker will unveil its first all-electric Ferrari in 2025.
The brand has built cars with PHEV hybrids, and executives have said over the past decade: Ferrari will never build an electric car.
And although the brand is in no hurry to electrify its collection, this is the direction it is actively pursuing.
“We continue to implement our electricity strategy in a very disciplined manner,” said Elkan. “Our interpretation and application of these technologies in both sports cars and road cars is a great opportunity to bring Ferrari uniqueness and passion to new generations.”
“By leveraging our motorsport experience, we have created the technical breakthrough and driving experience of our Ferrari SF90 Stradale and Ferrari SF90 Spider hybrid cars,” he added.
The Acting CEO continued, stating: We are very excited about the first all-electric Ferrari, and we are planning to unveil it in 2025, and we see this exciting decade of accelerating change as opening up more paths to new levels of exclusivity and passion in everything we do.
And in report Sustainability released at the same time, Ferrari explained how the hybrid and electric engines count, as well as new body styles, including the upcoming Ferrari Purosangue.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale was mentioned as the first application of rear mid-engine engineering that takes into account the weight and position of the electric motor and the battery.
The company is also working on designs for mid-engined front-drive cars that have a high range between comfort and sport.
Ferrari touched upon autonomous driving technology, and while the company does not plan to build self-driving cars, it is adopting certain autonomous technology features in response to regulatory developments and customer preferences, particularly in the GT segment.
The schedule may seem very slow to switch towards electric, but compared to the statements of Chairman Luca di Montezemolo in 2013 that Ferrari will never build an electric car, Elcan’s statements are far ahead.
