Ferrari’s CEO, Sergio Marchionne, has come out saying hybrid technology is the supercar brand’s next step to boosting sales volume, with all cars sold from 2019 to feature hybrid elements.

In a new report by industry journal Automotive News, the boss of the Prancing Horse said the brand could sell more than 10,000 vehicles a year by 2025 – which would require the company to adhere to certain fuel economy and emissions regulations it is currently exempt from, due to its current sub-10,000-unit sales volume.

Ferrari has committed to producing around 8000 cars this year and projects that figure to rise to 9000 by 2019.

Marchionne added that he expects the company to eclipse the 10,000 sales mark by 2025.

“Although I neither commit to this nor do I give any sort of certification of it being our objective, it is possible that the [annual sales] number could be well in excess of 10,000 cars in 2025,” he said.

Currently, the company’s only model to feature hybridisation is the limited-run LaFerrari coupe and Aperta drop-top hypercars, which team a 6.3-litre V12 with a 120kW electric motor producing combined outputs of 708kW and 900Nm.

Ferrari is also set to expand its range with vehicles that should appeal to a wider demographic, by focusing on characteristics other than the technological prowess.

An example of this is the recently-launched GTC4Lusso T (above), which features four seats and a smaller V8 turbo engine, “designed to be driven everyday”.
