Ferrari is planning to expand its northern Italy factory significantly as part of its electrification goals, sources said. According to a report by Bloomberg, sources familiar with the matter shared that Ferrari has acquired space near its Maranello plant and is already in the process of clearing up the way for setting up a third production line that will focus on hybrid and electric vehicles. Ferrari is also aiming to establish a new battery research and development centre as a part of this expansion plan.

It is expected that Ferrari's CEO Benedetto Vigna is expected to share Ferrari's plans for electric vehicles and business for the next four years by June 16. Earlier this year, when Vigna took over to lead the luxury automaker, it was reported that though Ferrari is sluggish with electrification, the CEO of the brand is going to focus on building up an EV strategy. It has been reported that Ferrari will bring its first fully electric vehicle in 2025.
