Ferrari’s first fully electric supercar to arrive in 2025

Ferrari have announced their first electric supercar will arrive in 2025 - and also three new models will be revealed over the next few months.

Yes folks, Ferrari will build a full EV, and – according to CEO John Elkann – it’ll be “everything you dream the engineers and designers at Maranello can imagine for such a landmark in our history”.

It’s another milestone in Ferrari’s ongoing electrification strategy, that first saw active duty with the mesmerising LaFerrari and more recently with the SF90 Stradale. “Our interpretation of these [EV] technologies both in motor sport and in road cars is a huge opportunity to bring the uniqueness and passion of Ferrari to new generations,” he added.

There’s no further detail at this early stage of course, so it’s anyone’s guess as to what kind of full EV Ferrari will release.

Ferrari set for Le Mans in 2023

Aside from those new models this year – and the e-supercar in 2025 – Elkann reiterated the exciting announcement that Ferrari will race again at Le Mans in 2023, “a race where so many great chapters in our motor racing history have been played out”. (It’s won the race nine times outright, the last in 1965 with a 250 LM, when it was having a massive ding-dong with a little-known outfit called ‘Ford’.)

Elkann also took time to praise the new driver-pairing in Formula One – Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr – saying the young duo “has already brought a great and positive new energy to the team”. In the season opener at Bahrain a couple of weeks back, Leclerc finished sixth, Sainz Jr eighth.
