Ferrari has unveiled the SF90 Stradale – the first ever Ferrari to feature PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) technology. Its internal combustion engine is integrated with three electric motors, two of which are independent and located on the front axle, with the third at the rear between the engine and the gearbox.
Ferrari says a high-performance Li-ion battery provides power to all three electric motors. When the internal combustion engine is turned off, the two front motors can deliver a maximum speed of 135 km/h.
The PHEV has a maximum speed of 340 km/h.
On its website Ferrari states: ‘The car’s name encapsulates the true significance of all that has been achieved in terms of performance. The reference to the 90th anniversary of the foundation of Scuderia Ferrari underscores the strong link that has always existed between Ferrari’s track and road cars’.
It adds: ‘A brilliant encapsulation of the most advanced technologies developed in Maranello, the SF90 Stradale is also the perfect demonstration of how Ferrari immediately transitions the knowledge and skills it acquires in competition to its production cars’.
