Take for example supercar maker, Ferrari, who has recently revealed that a fully-electric Ferrari car will only arrive after 2025. To be fair, Ferrari has explored the idea of electric cars before when they unveiled their first production plug-in hybrid, but it seems that the company is only planning on committing to a fully-electric car much later on.
This is according to the company’s CEO Louis Camilleri who said that this was largely due to batteries in which they do not think it is quite where they would like it yet. Speaking to reporters, Camilleri was quoted as saying, “The battery technology is not where it should be yet. There are still significant issues in terms of autonomy, in terms of speed of recharging. So eventually we will come out with one. But it’s post-2025. Not in the short term.”
The CEO also adds that they are exploring other alternative technologies to power electric cars, such as hydrogen and maybe even biofuels. “We are looking at various powertrains and trying to see what would be the most efficient and effective in terms of what our vision is for Ferrari cars in the future.”
