Ferrari wants to offer hybrid versions across its entire lineup within the next three to four years, the Italian automaker's chairman Luca di Montezemolo said.
The Ferrari executive made his comments at the press presentation of the sports car maker's 599 GTB Fiorano hybrid coupe model at the Geneva auto show Tuesday.
“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.
