Surely by now you have heard about the impending EPA restrictions on vehicle emissions. This governmental organization has required that by 2025, all automakers reduce their overall fleet emissions below a certain level to help combat climate change and the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. We suspect that many automakers will bide their time and make adjustments to their vehicles at the absolute last moment, but that is certainly not the case for Ferrari.
In a recent statement, Ferrari Powertrain Director, Vittorio Dini confirmed that he will slash the current average CO2 emissions of new Ferrari models by twenty percent by the year 2021. Today a new Ferrari produces an average of 270 grams per kilometer of CO2. To achieve this new goal that number will have to decrease to 216 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
This would have been a daunting task a decade ago but with turbo and hybrid technologies improving so much in the past several years, Ferrari is confident in its ability. In fact some models are already being built with more emission-conscious engines. The new California T for example has replaced the old naturally-aspirated V8 for a more-efficient turbocharged version. Even the LaFerrari is now being built with a hybrid V12 engine.
Here at Ferrari of Long Island we approve of any vehicle changes that will result in a net benefit to the environment while still preserving the integrity of Ferrari power and performance. For more information, please don’t hesitate to contact our showroom.
