Since 2019, SK On has been a trusted supplier of batteries to Ferrari, starting with the SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid and its SF90 Spider variant, followed by the 296 GTB and 296 GTS plug-in hybrids. Building upon their successful partnership, both companies have recently formalized their collaboration by signing a memorandum of understanding, aimed at delving into innovative solutions and advancements in battery-cell technology.


While a memorandum of understanding differs from a concrete product plan, it's evident that Ferrari will increasingly require batteries for future endeavors, including the development of additional plug-in hybrids and potentially all-electric models. With plans to introduce 15 new models, including an anticipated electric vehicle, possibly in the form of an SUV by 2025, Ferrari is strategically expanding its manufacturing facilities to accommodate the shift towards electric vehicle production.

Furthermore, a patent filing from Ferrari in late 2023 hinted at the exploration of in-wheel electric motors. However, considering the complexities associated with implementing in-wheel motors, as demonstrated by challenges faced by companies like Lordstown Motors, Ferrari may opt for a more conventional design in its future electric vehicle offerings.

A recent Ferrari patent filing for an "electric or hybrid sport car" indicates the brand's exploration into alternative propulsion systems. Specifically, the filing suggests that Ferrari is considering a mid-mounted battery pack, a departure from traditional engine placement. The concept involves mounting battery modules on a subframe-like structure, which could be securely attached to the chassis, potentially revolutionizing the design of future Ferrari models.

In an interview with CNBC, CEO Benedetto Vigna highlighted Ferrari's commitment to delivering a distinct driving experience with their upcoming electric vehicle, emphasizing that "electric cars are not silent." This statement suggests that Ferrari may integrate some form of artificial sound generation, akin to the technology used in the 2025 Dodge Charger Daytona, to evoke the same level of emotion synonymous with the Ferrari brand.
