Despite recent developments in HY-KERS technology for the LaFerrari, the Italian automaker is not planning to build an all-electric supercar, president Luca di Montezemolo revealed yesterday.
Speaking at a special press conference held at the Maranello factory, di Montezemolo said that Ferrari would “never build an all-electric car as long as I am chairman of the company”.

When asked about a future Ferrari saloon or SUV, the Italian boss underlined that the famed manufacturer won’t be adding such models to its lineup. "I am always being asked 'will you build an SUV? A smaller car or saloon?' I tell them to go and buy the new Maserati Quattroporte or Ghibli. We will be adding new models to our range in the future but only in the market position in which we have a strong heritage." he stated.

As we already told you yesterday, the Italian automaker is looking to become more exclusive in order to improve its financial results without growing annual sales volume.
