Bugatti: ICE is the most modern powertrainDecember 4, 2019
However, the company does not deny the possible electrification of its models. In the meantime, the brand will continue to use huge turbo engines on gasoline, but will begin to contribute to the greening of the planet.
Rumors of a possible all-electric version of the Bugatti have been around for a long time. However, the head of the company denies the possibility of such a car in the near future. The head of the Bugatti Stefan Winkelmann in an interview noted that electrification can not be implemented with a “swoop”. French hypercars will continue to be equipped with ICE.
“The internal combustion engine is the most advanced power plant,” said Winkelmann. “Why?” The power is unlimited, the acceleration is incredible, and full electrification or hybridization will increase the mass of the car, and possibly add dimensions to the wheelbase. ”
Given the manufacturability, cost and capabilities of Bugatti cars, the response of the head of the company is not surprising. However, many in Europe and the United States are concerned about the level of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. Therefore, the brand is now working with the French government on a new project, under which 4,000 trees will be planted.
And at the end of his speech, Winkelmann confirmed that he was not going to work on a new speed record for the Chiron model. The manufacturer will focus on other important aspects.
Earlier it became known that Bugatti will not abandon the internal combustion engine in the next 10 years. This was also said by brand manager Stefan Winkelmann.
