At the beginning of last year, Ferrari announced a “delay” for its first 100% electric car, and an availability postponed to, at least, 2025. On the occasion of his annual meeting, the CEO of the group made a point of giving some reassuring news, indicating that the first zero-emission Ferrari in history should indeed be unveiled in four years.
The 100% electric Ferrari for 2025
For example, Ferrari CEO John Elkann says: “We continue to implement our electrification strategy in a very disciplined manner. We are also very excited about our first fully electric Ferrari which we plan to unveil in 2025 and you can be sure it will be everything the engineers and designers at Maranello can imagine for such a landmark event in our history.”
To wait calmly until 2025, fans of the Italian manufacturer should be able to take advantage of various hybrid versions over the years. This obviously involves the SF90 Stradale, a plug-in hybrid car with a 4.0L V8 unit, which is associated with three electric motors, for a total power of around 1000 hp. By the end of next year, the Italian manufacturer also hopes to be able to sell 70% of hybrid vehicles.
Remember that Ferrari has already declared that it wants to wait to launch its electric car, the manufacturer was not satisfied with the current batteries, pointing to concerns related to autonomy, but also to the speed of recharging. For Ferrari, it is nevertheless essential to accelerate in this segment, so as not to be left behind by other premium brands, such as Porsche in particular, which already offer one or even several 100% electric vehicles.
It remains to be seen what this first 100% electric-powered Ferrari will look like, and whether the manufacturer will offer a supercar worthy of the name, or whether it will put more emphasis on the SUV market. So to follow (but in a few years anyway).
