Plugged In

Ferrari’s newly unveiled SF90 Stradale can go from zero to 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in 2.5 seconds. It has a top speed of 339 kph (211 mph), and 986 horsepower makes it the most powerful production car the company has ever released.

It’s also the company’s first plug-in hybrid — another encouraging sign that luxury carmakers are starting to embrace electric vehicles.

It’s (Partly) Electric

According to a Ferrari press release, the SF90 Stradale features a trio of electric motors, two in the front and one near the rear.

The car won’t get terribly far in all-electric mode, though — just 24 kilometers (15 miles) — so drivers will likely opt to use the vehicle in hybrid mode, relying on the car’s electric motors as well as its gasoline engine.

Start Saving

Ferrari has yet to share details on exactly when the SF90 Stradale will be available for purchase, but CNN reports that the first vehicles will be delivered at the beginning of 2020.

The cost of the car is also unknown, but given that it’s a Ferrari, a price in the six- or seven-figure range wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibility.
