Sustainable mobility has become central for Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) as the luxury carmaker, which is searching for a new chief executive, prepares to unveil its 1st all-electric model in Y 2025, Chairman John Elkann said on Thursday.
Mr. Elkann, the scion of Italy’s Agnelli family which controls Ferrari through its investment company Exor, set the precise deadline for its 1st electric vehicle last month.
Elkann is Exor Chief Executive and Chairman and made the remarksThursday while speaking to shareholders.
His commitment puts Ferrari ahead of Lamborghini, 1 of its rivals, on the road to electrification, as the Volkswagen-owned supercar brand is not planning to launch a fully electric model until 2-H of the decade.
Ferrari has been looking for a new CEO since Louis Camilleri left in December and Mr. Elkann said last month that it was making good progress on a shortlist of very strong candidates.
John Elkann, who is also Chairman of Stellantis, said an “Electrification Day” the world’s fourth-largest carmaker is holding in July would be, “a fundamental chapter as Stellantis continues to build its future as a protagonist in sustainable mobility”
