Electric Ferrari Cars, Now and In the Future

Ferrari SF90 Stradale in profile

The Ferrari SF90 Stadale’s plug-in hybrid powertrain set the automotive world aflame, proving that hybrid technology and world-class performance could coexist and even thrive. Of course, this isn’t the first semi-electric Ferrari car — the revolutionary Ferrari LaFerrari’s electric motor helps the car achieve a 218-mph top speed, proving that a hybrid powertrain can tear up the track. 

This is especially important now, as Ferrari is aiming for 60% of its lineup to feature hybrid powertrains by 2022, with the goal of a fully electric Ferrari car being released after 2025.


Benefits of Hybrid-Electric Powertrains in Ferrari Models

You can see the seeds of Ferrari’s hybrid future in the SF90 stradale, of course, and the hypercar’s performance shows that its hybrid-electric powertrain isn’t just a gimmick. In fact, there are many tangible performance benefits that come with a hybrid or electric Ferrari powertrain, including:

  • Immediate Torque: Even an electric commuter car will benefit from near-immediate torque when you step on the gas — and in a hypercar like the SF90 Stradale or LaFerrari, the benefits are even more tangible. It’s a big part of why the SF90 Stradale can jump from 0 – 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds, while the LaFerrari can do the same in just 2.4 seconds.
  • Regenerative Braking: As a plug-in hybrid, the SF90 is designed to be plugged in to charge its battery when the vehicle’s not in use, but it also takes advantage of regenerative braking. This technology captures thermal energy from the car’s brakes and uses it to power the battery.
  • Lower Center of Gravity: Electric vehicles tend to have a lower center of gravity than their traditional counterparts due to fewer heavy engine parts and the weight of their batteries. In real-world situations, this can improve handling, which should have us all excited about the electric Ferrari models of the future!
  • Engineering Innovation: Ferrari has never been shy about pursuing cutting-edge engineering in the name of performance, and making a fully electric supercar or hypercar could be the Prancing Horse’s biggest challenge yet! In Ferrari’s storied history, the need for this level of innovation often leads to performance breakthroughs, and we expect the same in this situation.

  • Ferrari Returns to the 24 Hours of Le Mans

    The announcement that Ferrari will return to the top class of the World Endurance Championship with a new Le Mans Hypercar in 2023 ignites memories of the first sparks of the relationship between Ferrari and endurance racing.   Just two years after their first production car, two V12 Ferrari 166MMs entered in the 1949 24 Hours of Le Mans. The first Le Mans to take place after World War II. After six hours of racing, one of the Ferraris got caught in an accident, leaving the driver team of the Italian-born Luigi Chinetti and British Peter Mitchell-Thomson in a gruesome battle…
