The automotive world is waiting breathlessly as Ferrari completes its first Ferrari electric car.
But did you know that by 2030 some 40 percent of the production supercars made by Ferrari will be pure electric vehicles? And the first Ferrari electric car is to be unveiled by 2025, according to Robb Report.
Ferrari’s strategic four-year business plan indicates a number of new models on the way – with some 15 new models planned for the next four years, according to Forbes magazine.
In other words, the Purosangue hybrid is just the beginning of a wave of new models you can expect in the next couple of years.
As Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna put it: “The full electric Ferrari will be a real Ferrari.”
The EV Ferrari is in fact being designed, produced, and put together in Maranello at the company’s new E-Building. The E-Building is where the electric motor, inverter, and the battery module are built and it’s also home to the EV assembly line and paint shop.
Ferrari’s first hybrid was the SF90 Stradale, with a twin-turbo V8 and three electric motors.
Ferrari being Ferrari has rebelled against modern trends by confirming that it will continue to develop combustion engines alongside its growing number of new hybrids and EVs.
“I believe the internal combustion engine has a lot to give,” Vigna told investors at the time the decision was announced. “On one side, we have to cope with emissions regulations, but most importantly we see electrification as a way, as a technology, that can enhance the performance of what we do.”
He said the “Ferrari electric car would be unique in a burgeoning world of performance EVs and would leverage Ferrari’s racing history and know-how to deliver power density, weight, sound, and driving emotions no other maker could replicate,” according to Forbes.
The car’s batteries will be hand-assembled in Maranello.
And the modules will then be integrated into the chassis of its cars in a way that reduces weight and increases performance, Vigna noted.

Ferrari first and foremost makes some of the greatest supercars in the world – and the company’s first EV will likely be a hypercar to compete in the rarefied world of the Rimac Nevera and the Lotus Evija.
You can expect the first Ferrari electric car to be low-slung, long, and of course, fast and powerful.
Electrification first came into the Ferrari world in the form of the SF90 Stradale last year.
The SF90 Stradale brings together everything Ferrari has achieved over the decades in terms of performance and attention to detail, uniting the most advanced technologies developed over nine decades.
It’s the perfect demonstration of how Ferrari immediately transitions the knowledge and skills it acquires on the track directly to its production cars.

The SF90 Stradale is the first ever Ferrari to feature PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) architecture.
The internal combustion engine is integrated with three electric motors, two of which are independent and located on the front axle – with the third at the rear between the engine and the gearbox.
Offered in hardtop-coupe Stradale and convertible Spider body styles, these sexy yet environmentally friendly SF90s carry nearly 1,000 horsepower (986) and deliver searing acceleration. And both the SF90 models come with a remarkable number of standout features including automatic climate control, luxurious leather, and a reconfigurable digital gauge display, among others.
The 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 generates a mighty 769 horsepower on its own, and the trio of electric motors provides an additional 217 horsepower.
Overall, the gas/electric powertrain generates a net output of 986 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque.
You can get from zero to 60 in a mere 2.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 211 mph. All starting at about $511,295.
