Future Ferrari Models will be a Mix of ICE and Electric Vehicles

The transition to electrification was discussed at Ferrari’s Capital Markets Day investor presentation, but the company’s executives were adamant that combustion engines would continue to play a role.

“Three powertrains with distinct driving emotions” will be available. Across the brand’s portfolio, 40% of the cars will be pure-combustion and 60% will be electrified – either pure EV or hybridized.

The Ferrari Roma, Ferrari 812 Superfast, Ferrari 296 GTB, and Ferrari SF90 are currently in series production, and they already represent a 50-50 mix of pure-combustion and hybrid models.

This increase in electrification over the next few years will not come at the expense of combustion engine development, with the goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2030. Even in 2030, pure-combustion vehicles will account for 20% of total vehicle sales.

It’s possible that the company’s pure-combustion engines will be retained in the limited-run Icona series models, similar to the SP3 Daytona that was recently revealed. By 2026, it will account for less than 5% of the company’s total output, along with the upcoming supercar.

However, Ferrari has confirmed that the long-awaited Purosangue SUV, which the company expects to account for less than 20% of its sales by 2026, will arrive in September, initially in non-electric V12 form.

Ferrari’s First Pure-Electric Car is Set to Debut in 2025

Ferrari’s first pure-electric car, set to debut in 2025, will rely on “strong commonalities with the internal combustion engine,” including race-derived powertrain technology, mechanicals, and dynamic software, according to the brand.

While Ferrari hasn’t revealed the exact positioning of its upcoming first electric vehicle, it does promise top-notch power density, a low kerb weight, an exciting sound, and an emotional driving experience.

Ferrari will assemble batteries in a new “e-building” facility in Maranello dedicated to the design and manufacture of electric drivetrain components. The batteries will be integrated into the electric cars’ chassis to reduce weight and improve rigidity.

Ferrari also revealed details about its plans to develop autonomous driving technology across its entire lineup. It will limit autonomy to Level 2 or 2+, in line with its cars’ driver-centric design. Connectivity features will always be used “first and foremost to enhance the ownership experience and the relationship with the client,” according to Ferrari.
