Luca di Montezemolo said that the Italian automaker wants to introduce hybrid powertrains for the entire range by the end of 2014 ! The announcement was made Tuesday at the Geneva auto show, where Ferrari presented the 599 GTB Fiorano hybrid coupe model.
This is a first step of a long project and we want within three years, maximum four, to have a hybrid Ferrari car ready for every single product of our range. This is our goal,” Montezemolo told reporters. “In three years we aim to cut emissions by a minimum of 35 percent.”
Ferrari showed a prototype of its 599 GTB Fiorano with a hybrid powertrain called Hykers.
HY stands for hybrid, while KERS is a contraction of the Kinetic Energy Recuperation System, which the company used during the 2009 Formula One racing season.
