Recently published patent documents suggest that Ferrari are looking into entering the electric vehicle market. However, rumour has it that it’s not going to be ready until 2025.
Apparently the Ferrari will be a four-wheel drive, two seater with an electric motor mounted on each wheel.
Ferrari’s commercial boss, Enrico Galliera has been quoted as saying…
There are some competitors entering the market with new technology that we will look at, but will that be a problem to Ferrari? I think not, because of the specific niche Ferrari targets
And will that trigger interest in that market for Ferrari? No. We firmly believe that battery technology is not yet developed enough to meet the needs of a supercar. In the next five years, we do not believe the technology will be able to meet the needs of a Ferrari.
We will meet all the regulations that will come into force to compete in a market, and we don’t believe that such regulations will force us to make special plans.
As soon as electrified technology is developed, that will allow us to produce a car that fits with our position. Then why not? But the key is the technology: we will not just make a Ferrari that’s electric for the sake of it.
If we bring in new technology, then we need to bring something new to the market. That’s how Ferrari has always worked with new technology. The evolution of new technology is 100% in the DNA of Ferrari.
