Ferrari will launch its first electric car in 2025

Ferrari has confirmed it is an all-electric car, but that will take several years and there is hope that the plan will continue after the company hires a new CEO.

Acting CEO John Elkan announced this week's annual general meeting that the automaker will launch its first fully electric Ferrari in 2025.

The brand has used PHEV hybrids to make cars, and executives have said over the past decade: Ferrari will never build electric cars.

When a brand is not in a hurry to electrify its product lines, it actively strives in this direction.

"We will continue to implement the energy strategy in a disciplined manner. Our interpretation and application of these technologies in sports cars and road vehicles represents a great opportunity to bring the exclusivity and passion of Ferrari to a new generation," said Elkan.

"By leveraging our racing experience, we have created a technological breakthrough and driving experience for the Ferrari SF90 Stradale and Ferrari SF90 Spider hybrids," he added.

And the CEO continued, “We are very excited about the first all-electric Ferrari. We plan to launch it in 2025. With new avenues opening up to take the limit to a new level, we see it dramatically in a decade of accelerating change, so everything we do is exclusive and passionate.

In a sustainability report published at the same time, Ferrari explained the importance of hybrid and electric engines as well as new body shapes, including the futuristic Ferrari Purosangue.

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is the first application of rear-drive technology that takes into account the weight and position of the electric motor and the battery.

The company is also committed to the front-line design of a mid-engined car with a wide choice between comfort and sport.

Ferrari deals with autonomous driving technology. While the company does not intend to manufacture autonomous cars, it does use some autonomous driving technologies to adapt to changing regulations and customer preferences, particularly in the GT space.

The timetable for moving to electric cars seems slow, but compared to President Luca di Montezemolo's statement in 2013 that Ferrari will never build electric cars, Ercan's statement is very short.
