The Italian Stallion has released its first series production hybrid electric car, the breathtaking SF90 Stradale plug-in hybrid.
With many of the world’s leading marques now going green, Ferrari has unveiled the SF90 Stradale, the brand’s first series-production plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and a true paradigm shift that delivers unprecedented performance for a production car.
A brilliant encapsulation of the most advanced technologies developed in Maranello, the SF90 Stradale has a 90-degree V8 turbo engine capable of delivering 780 cv, the highest power output of any 8-cylinder in Ferrari history. The remaining 220 cv is delivered by three electric motors, one at the rear, known as the MGUK (Motor Generator Unit, Kinetic) due to its derivation from the Formula 1 application, located between the engine and the new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission on the rear axle, and two on the front axle.
This sophisticated system does not, however, make for a more complicated driving experience. Quite the opposite, in fact: the driver simply has to select one of the four power unit modes, and then just concentrate on driving. The sophisticated control logic takes care of the rest, managing the flow of power between the V8, the electric motors and the batteries.
The SF90 Stradale is also the first Ferrari sports car to be equipped with 4WD, a step necessary to allow the incredible power unleashed by the hybrid powertrain to be fully exploited, ensuring the car has become the new benchmark for standing starts: 0-100km/h in 2.5 sec and 0-200km/h in just 6.7 seconds.
