The first electric Ferrari in 2025.. How will it be?

Ferrari, which has been making luxury cars for more than 75 years in the Italian city of Maranello, faces a challenge that could jeopardize its identity: the challenge of moving to the electric car industry.

"This challenge is an existential one for Ferrari, which is steeped in tradition and has made a name for itself with its powerful and boisterous internal combustion engines," says the Wall Street Journal.

Leading the company's transformation is its new CEO, Benedetio Vigna, who comes from the semiconductor industry. Vigna told the newspaper that the company's first all-electric car would be launched in 2025.

Vigna told the newspaper that electronic chips will play a pivotal role in the "car of the future", as the new car has "limited" features for self-driving, but it will not be fully self-driving. Vigna also said the new car "will not be silent".

"We will look at three dimensions: design, performance and emotion. We will always have a unique design. On the performance side, we look at aerodynamics and engine efficiency, on the emotional side, we look at sound and the way the driver feels acceleration," Vigna added.

Vigna also said that the company would remain interested in Formula One, adding: "Racing is part of the DNA of this company, it has always been and always will be. It is the glue that keeps everyone here together and fosters a sense of belonging and passion. It reminds the people who work here of the importance of timing and attention. detail and that everything should work together perfectly."

But he denied a link between the company's race victory and sales, although he admitted that "winning the race boosts staff morale."
