Ferrari Will Challenge Tesla By Creating an Electric Supercar

A Ferrari SUV Won’t Happen As Long As Marchionne is Still In Charge

Ferrari Has Plans to Make an Electric Supercar

Ferrari and FCA CEO, Sergio Marchionne, who is stepping down soon, recently confirmed there are plans for a Ferrari EV. People are amazed at what Tesla did with a supercar: "I'm not trying to minimise what Elon did but I think it's doable by all of us". While we're still a few years away from the release of Ferrari's battery-powered offering, the company intends to build a supercar - a luxury electric sports vehicle that will appeal directly to wealthy millionaires who are also conscious about their impact on the environment. Tesla claims the vehicle will sprint to 60 miles per hour in 1.9 seconds and top out at 250 miles per hour, meaning it would outmatch any Ferrari road auto to date by a significant margin.

It may serve Ferrari well to ensure that their electric cars are definitely (and literally) up to speed before offering them commercially, as well as making sure that there's enough of an interest among their standard customer base.

The announcement came at the end of a three-day conference, which was conducted to hail the four years of his presidency. Candidates are due to register from January 20 to 29.

Despite Marchionne's aspiration to be first past the post, Aston Martin and Volkswagen both claimed in 2017 to already be developing their own electric supercars.

Forget about the next-gen Roadster or even the original Roadster, which came out in 2008 and some considered a supercar, but there have been plenty of electric supercars since, like Rimac's Concept_One, Nio's EP9, and others.

More than 9,200 people have been killed in Yemen since March 2015, when the Saudi-led military coalition intervened in the war. The expansion of ports will be supported with up to $40 million from the Saudi-led coalition.

And that's without counting the Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous, which doesn't look like a supercar, but it performs better than one in several ways.

For the record, Ferrari did end up rolling out a limited-edition hybrid in 2014, and Marchionne vowed to make all of its models hybrid in some way by 2019. Marchionne, one of the auto industry's longest-serving CEOs, is set to retire in 2021.
