Ferrari confirms it's making an electric supercar

According to Bloomberg, Ferrari is looking to build their first ever SUV model and that the new SUV will be arriving in 2019 or 2020.

This is the first indication from the legendary Italian manufacturer of its plans to build an electric supercar, though in 2016 Marchionne did state that it's the company's vision to have hybrid models of every Ferrari auto by 2019. "I'm not trying to minimize what Elon did but I think it's doable by all of us".

Ferrari has indicated it may take Tesla head-on in the electric auto market.

Tesla has turned the world of supercars on its head when it unveiled a prototype of its next-generation Roadster with record-breaking specs past year.

Of course, it's hard not to notice that Marchionne's words here sound vague as possible.

Asked if it was the end of the matter, or would his party leader be doing something, he said "I hope it is the end of the matter".

Ferrari is reconsidering some of the things that it will build. This comes from a person who said about Fiat 500e "I Hope You Don't Buy It" - We Lose 14k A Sale. Presumably, the company is waiting to see whether their upcoming range of hybrids do well before fully committing themselves to a time schedule for the release of an electric alternative. However, in most of the auto shows the proclamation of electric vehicle manufacturing is greater than the actual work done in this regard.

Ferrari is aiming at selling more than 10,000 cars per year, which means it needs to meet more stringent fuel standards.

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. And although that future won't happen overnight, we can already take a glimpse of the luxurious all-electric vehicle market.

That said, the writing is on the wall for traditional gasoline-powered automobiles.

Some firms have already gotten around to launching electric supercars, though the cars' production runs are tiny.
