Ferrari patented the details of the future electric carJanuary 26, 2020
Five years is the time we have to wait before Ferrari finally unveils its first all-electric supercar.
Porsche has its own Taycan, the first four-door electric car of the brand, and this certainly stirred up the segment. Now it’s Ferrari’s turn – although this Ferrari patent application, compiled by the Taycan EV forum, talks very little about the future EV supercar from Maranello.
As expected in the future, the Ferrari EV will have four electric motors – one for each wheel, according to the details of the patent. Taking into account that the “independent” operation of the motors means that the car will be capable of the most accurate vectorization of torque. Future electric Ferrari should retain the ease of use that modern car are known for.
The battery will be located in the free space area where the rear wheels are located, as in most modern electric cars. It is noteworthy that the patent application applies to the hybrid application. In this case, the internal combustion unit will be located in the gap zone instead of the battery pack.
This patent application is not concrete evidence of what Ferrari is preparing for its first EV, of course. Nevertheless, this is a good sign that the company is serious about introducing an environmentally friendly car into its lineup.
