The supercar maker is following the trends of the automotive industry, which means that it is working on electric vehicles to join or replace its current gasoline-powered models.
Since there are major differences in the assembly process of vehicles powered by fuel or by batteries, it makes sense that the company will have to proceed with substantial modifications to its manufacturing facilities.
Rather than refurbishing its current production line, which is still needed to produce the brand’s current models, Ferrari is likely to add another assembly line in a new building, which will only manufacture electric and hybrid vehicles. A new R&D center focused on battery technologies is also rumoured to be in the plans.
This is further evidenced by the fact that Ferrari recently purchased a plot of land adjacent to its existing operations and it looks like land-clearing operations are underway.
