► First EV announced at shareholders' meeting
► Ferrari maps out its electrification strategy
► It's already begun with the SF90 hypercar
Maranello has confirmed it's working on its first EV as part of a new electrification strategy, when chairman and interim CEO John Elkann announced the first details at a shareholders' meeting.
Technically, the brand started its electrification path with the wild SF90 Stradale, a plug-in hybrid hypercar that can run on e-power for a limited amount of time. But Ferrari has bigger goals.
'We are very excited about our first all-electric Ferrari that we plan to unveil in 2025,' Elkann told shareholders. 'You can be sure this will be everything you dream the engineers and designers at Maranello can imagine for such a landmark in our history.
'We are continuing to execute our electrification strategy in a highly disciplined way.' Elkann added: 'Our interpretation of these technologies both in motorsport and in road cars is a huge opportunity to bring the uniqueness and passion of Ferrari to new generations.'
Few other details are known, but we expect this new EV to be a sports car akin to the F8. This is on top of the new Purosangue SUV due in the next two years, which is expected to arrive as a plug-in hybrid.
On top of that, 2021 is another year of new product launches for Ferrari, with Elkann pointing out that 'we will unveil a further three new models in the coming months.' CAR understands that one is a variant on the 812, while another is a replacement for the F8 Tributo.
The news comes not long after Ferrari's official announcement that it is returning to the top class of Le Mans. Ferrari, in a brief statement, announced that it would join the hypercar class of WEC, alongside Peugeot and Toyota.
