Ferrari hasn’t yet revealed its first electric-only car, but it’s rapidly growing sales of its plug-in hybrid models.
The company’s sales results for the third quarter of 2023 reveal 51 per cent of the 3459 cars it delivered were hybrids.
The Roma coupe and convertible, Purosangue SUV, and 812 Competizione A are the remaining petrol models in the Ferrari range, while the SF90 Stradale and Spider, and 296 GTB and GTS feature plug-in hybrid powertrains.
The first electric Ferrari is coming in 2025, and by 2026 the carmaker plans to build up to 60 per cent of its cars with hybrid and electric powertrains.
It won’t be giving up on internal combustion entirely, however.
The company’s head of product marketing, Pietro Virgolin, earlier this year told CarExpert despite the additional costs of maintaining so many different powertrain options, the company believes it’s the right way forward.
“As a company, we decided to invest in many, many engines and this is against the market,” Mr Virgolin told CarExpert.
“Because for sure we decided to invest in all engines, naturally aspirated, hybrid and also electric, this is much more expensive as a strategy for the company but this is the only way we think it’s possible to make every a car for a lot of happy customers in the Ferrari family.”
