Having said that, there could be a substantial hold out for Ferrari to make a complete-fledged change to EVs, as Elkann included, “… we’ll have changes in the electricity provide, which could lead to having choices, for case in point, e-fuels or hydrogen. But that is genuinely 2030, 2040, and most possible midpoint 2035, where by we’ll see this happening. What we want to make absolutely sure is to be equipped to use the technologies offered, which today are hybrid heading to electric powered and exploiting those people to the fullest and in the very best way probable.”
