    Ferrari has announced that it will launch 15 new cars by 2026 and also electrify 60 percent of its line-up by the same year. The new launches will include the Italian brand's first pure EV, a new range-topping supercar and several additions to the ultra-exclusive Icona series.

    • Multiple Icona series models incoming
    • First pure EV to launch in 2025

    Future Ferrari line-up: A mix of ICE, electrified models

    At Ferrari's Capital Markets Day investor presentation, its bosses spoke about the transition to electrification, but were adamant about the continued role of combustion powertrains.

    There will be "three powertrains with distinctive driving emotions". Forty percent of the cars will be pure-combustion and 60 percent will be electrified – either pure EV or hybridised – across the brand's portfolio.

    Ferrari currently has four model lines in series production – the Ferrari Roma, Ferrari 812 Superfast, Ferrari 296 GTB and Ferrari SF90 – which already constitute a 50-50 mix between pure-combustion and hybrid models.

    This ramp-up in electrification over the coming years – with a view to becoming carbon-neutral by 2030 – will not come at the expense of combustion engine development. Even in 2030, pure-combustion models will account for 20 percent of all models sold.

    It is possible that the firm's pure-combustion engines will continue in the limited-run Icona series models – in the vein of the recently revealed SP3 Daytona. Along with the upcoming supercar, it will account for less than 5 percent of the firm's total output by 2026.

    However, Ferrari has confirmed that the long-awaited Purosangue SUV – which the brand expects will make up less than 20 percent of its sales by 2026 – will arrive in September this year, initially in a non-electrified V12 form.

    First pure-electric Ferrari due in 2025

    Ferrari's first pure-electric car, which has been previously confirmed for a 2025 launch, will leverage "strong commonalities with the internal combustion engine", among which the brand lists race-derived powertrain technology, mechanicals and dynamic software.

    While Ferrari hasn't yet revealed the positioning details of its upcoming first EV, it promises top-level power density, a low kerb weight, an exciting sound and an emotional driving experience among its core attributes.

    Batteries will be assembled by Ferrari in Maranello in a new "e-building" facility dedicated to the design and construction of electric drivetrain components. To keep the electric cars' weight down and enhance their rigidity, the batteries will be integrated into their chassis.

    Ferrari also gave out details of its plans for the development of autonomous driving functionality across its line-up. In line with the driver focus of its cars, it will limit the autonomy to Level 2 or 2+. Ferrari emphasised that connectivity functions will always be used "first and foremost to enhance the ownership experience and the relationship with the client".
