According to CEO Sergio Marchionne, Ferrari is planning to built a fully electric supercar, to compete with Tesla.
“If an electric supercar will be built, then Ferrari will be the first,” according to Marchionne.
This statement is interesting news as last October, Ferrari said a fully Electric Ferrari would not fit with the brand. Until now, Ferrari has replaced its V12 engines by turbocharged V8 variants, but fully electric or hybrid vehicles remain unheard of.
Other manufacterers are also designing electric super cars, such as such as Renault’s Trezor. concept,Porsche’s Mission E and the Chinese brand NIO that set the round record for electric vehicles on the Nürburgring.
