With a push towards the electric cars, Italian sports carmaker, Ferrari has revealed that it has been testing a gasoline-electric hybrid car that people “could run silently”.
Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne reportedly said that Ferrari has no plans to produce a full-electric car before 2022.
Marchionne added that the supercar manufacturer has been quietly—very quietly—testing a gasoline-electric hybrid car “you could run silently” at a track near its headquarters in the northern Italian town of Maranello.
Earlier, Marchionne had said, “If there is an electric supercar to be built, then Ferrari will be the first.”
A video posted on YouTube last month shows a car at the Ferrari track making no sound as it accelerates from a full stop. While Ferrari has no plans to produce a full-electric car before 2022, the company is developing vehicles that will show “the full power of electrification,” Marchionne was quoted in a report.
