Ferrari President Doesn’t Believe In Electric Cars

Luca di Montezemolo

Cancel that order for your electric-powered 599 Fiorano; Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has said the Italian sports car company will never build an EV. During an interview with Engadget, Montezemolo reiterated the company’s commitment to producing a hybrid vehicle – something similar to the 599 Hy-Kers concept, shown during the 2010 Geneva Auto Show. But on the subject of a full electric Ferrari, he was blunt and to the point:

You will never see a Ferrari electric because I don’t believe in electric cars, because I don’t think they represent an important step forward for pollution or CO2 or the environment.

What’s your take? Should the world’s most famous automotive brand think outside the box and look into electrification? Or is Ferrari better served sticking with what it knows, building fast and covetable cars with screaming gas-powered engines?
