Ferrari to launch all-electric car in 2019
The Ferrari brand is preparing to launch a new all-electrified Ferrari that it hopes will be able to match or beat the performance of its electric car, which is due to arrive in 2019.
The new Ferrari, codenamed Project Energi, will be the first in a series of electric cars Ferrari hopes will replace the current fleet of the super luxury brand’s supercars.
The name “Energi” is a play on the Italian word for “power”.
The new car is expected to have a range of over 300 miles (480km), with the ability to drive itself at speeds of up to 250mph.
Ferrari is also planning to use a battery pack made by Panasonic, which has been a key partner in the company’s electric vehicle development for years.
It is expected the car will be powered by the electric motors of the new Mitsubishi battery packs, which are designed to have an output of 500 kilowatts (716hp) and will be capable of a range up to 200 miles (320km).
Ferraris first electric cars, the F40 and F60, were powered by lithium-ion batteries, which were more than 10 years old by the time the brand introduced them in 2012.
The F40 was initially launched in 2015.
The company has said it will launch a range-extended electric car by 2020.
But it has not confirmed the exact date for when the new electric Ferrari will be available.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the parent of the Fiat brand, which runs the European brand, said it was looking at the car.
The Fiat brand has been working on an electric version of its iconic Maserati and Dodge Durango sports cars, but has been unable to make any progress.
Fadagio Lecce, chief executive of the brand, told reporters in Geneva that Ferrari’s plans for the electric car are “exciting”.
“We will do everything possible to make the electric Ferrari,” he said.
“We have the experience in this area, we have the expertise, and we have everything in place to make this possible.”
This is an exciting opportunity for the future of this brand, the future for our brand, for our company.
