The Italian automaker is working on two SUV's that will be electric. The SUV will be named Purosangue, is designed to fit battery-electric powertrains, and will have two electric SUV code-named the F244 and F245 in 2024 and 2026, respectively.
The SUV comes with four- motor powertrains and pack 610 horsepower and 80 kilowatt-hours of battery capacity in base guise. It reported that the SUV could fit five people due to a central driveshaft tunnel no longer being needed. This contrasts with the upcoming Purosangue, which is expected to be a four-seater, just like the GTC4 Lusso.
In 2019, former Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri said the automaker was studying the potential for an electric grand tourer and said such a model wouldn't be ready until after 2025 as a result of lack of suitable battery technology. Since then, patent drawings filed by Ferrari for a modular electric drive system discovered.
During the launch, the Purosangue will contain V-12 spitting out 800 horsepower, with a plug-in hybrid powertrain using a V-8 engine expected to follow at a later date. The SUV with a V-12 should help build credibility for a vehicle that one does not associate with a brand like Ferrari. The company will ensure that the Purosangue is among the fastest SUVs in production when it finally arrives. More to follow; keep it here.
