Ferrari’s slick new ‘e-building’ in Maranello, which will produce the Ferrari’s upcoming EV, has been unveiled.

The building is located in the new northern expansion of the firm’s Maranello production site – and was inaugurated at a special ceremony on Friday, June 21. 

The event was attended by the President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella.

The new building was designed with sustainability in mind

“We are honored to have President Mattarella with us for the inauguration of the e-building, a plant that combines the centrality of the people in the workplace with respect for the environment,” Ferrari’s President, John Elkann said. 

“Investing in our territory is essential to prepare ourselves for Ferrari’s future with confidence and confirms our commitment to Italian excellence and to our country.”

According to a press release from Ferrari, the e-building is ‘designed to achieve the highest levels of energy performance, is powered – among other sources – by more than 3,000 solar panels installed on the roof that produce 1.3 MW’.

Not only that, but the whole building will be ‘powered entirely by renewable energy’ following the scheduled shutdown of the trigeneration plant later this year. 

Ferrari’s groundbreaking EV will be made there

Its green credentials are a perfect fit for what the factory will be used for, producing, amongst other things, Ferrari’s first electric car. 

As yet, little is known about the eagerly anticipated all-electric – other than it is likely to set you back at least $535,000 and that it will have the same ‘Ferrari sound’. 

The press release goes on to explain that alongside the EV, the new building will also be creating internal combustion-engine cars and hybrids.

You may remember that Ferrari recently vowed to continue making its iconic V12 engines until authorities outlaw it

Emanuele Carando, the Italian marque’s Product Marketing and Marketing Intelligence Director, said the automaker would produce naturally aspirated V12s until the law no longer allows it to.

“We hope the law in the future will continue to show opportunities, probably working on new petrol which is more sustainable,” he said. 

“We believe it’s important to give to our clients who love this engine, both in the present and probably in the future.”
