First, it was the turbochargers. Then it was the news that Ferrari would build a "utility vehicle." Now, we know that Ferrari will have a hybrid V8 powertrain debuting in 2019.
, CEO Sergio Marchionne said that "a Ferrari V8 hybrid is coming for 2019. The test mules are around now." He also said that it "needs to become more of a traditional hybrid [than the LaFerrari] to fulfill a different role."
The LaFerrari, of course, was FCA's only hybrid offering until the Chrysler Pacifica came along. That car also paired a high revving, naturally-aspirated V12 with a KERS system, not really what we equate with a normal hybrid. That likely means this new series-production system will use batteries instead of an exotic flywheel system or some other more experimental setup.
Its debut also matches up with the supposed release of Ferrari's utility vehicle, which makes sense. We also have no evidence for this, but it'd make sense for the powertrain to also appear in a version of the GTC4Lusso T.
