Ferrari’s First-Ever Electric Vehicle Will Make Authentic Noise: Report

The first electric Ferrari will be quick, but not as fast as SF90 XX hybrid supercar, which can do 0-100 km/h in 2.3 sec

Ferrari surprised everyone three years ago by announcing they would make an electric car. The Italian supercar specialist’s first EV will come out in late 2025, and it will be a loud one, literally.

This week, the company’s executives told Australian reporters that their first electric car will still be a true Ferrari. Also, they said it won’t mean the company will stop making petrol and hybrid cars.

Electric cars from Tesla, Rimac, Porsche, and Lucid are famous for their fast acceleration. They use batteries to achieve this speed.

However, Ferrari isn’t focusing on making the quickest or most powerful electric car. They say their first EV might not be faster than their SF90 XX hybrid supercar, which can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.3 seconds.

The first electric Ferrari might not be the fastest, but it won’t be silent either. Emanuele Carando, the Product Marketing and Marketing Intelligence Director, said the electric Ferrari will make authentic noise. This means it won’t use artificial sounds from speakers, like the Hyundai Ioniq 5N.

If Ferrari calls the sound “authentic,” it might be the natural noise of the electric motor. They could make it louder using speakers, but then it wouldn’t be completely genuine. Regardless of the sound, it’s first electric car will bring new feelings compared to their current models.

The Italian automaker isn’t talking much about its electric car for now, which is reasonable considering how significant it is. They haven’t even said what it will look like, but Ferrari will make it in a new factory in Maranello. The car with no name yet is expected to make up 5% of the company’s sales in 2026, its first full year on the market.

Ferrari won’t stop making V-12 engines just because they’re introducing an electric car. They plan to continue making V-12 engines until they’re not allowed anymore. Carando says wealthy customers will decide if they want a regular gas engine, a hybrid, or an electric car.

Ferrari will introduce its EV before Lamborghini does because Lamborghini’s 2+2 grand tourer, the Lanzador, won’t be available until 2028. Ferrari expects that by the end of the decade, 40% of its yearly sales will be cars without a traditional combustion engine.
