Inauguration of the Ferrari e-building in the presence of the president of the Italian Republic Mattarella

The e-building, the factory that will produce internal combustion-engined cars, hybrids and Ferrari's first electric model, has been inaugurated in the presence of Italian President Sergio Mattarella. The plant, will have a focus on sustainability and will see the production of cars with all types of powertrain.

Through the e-building, Ferrari is enhancing its production flexibility. The plant also reflects the principle of technological neutrality, as it will house the production and development of internal combustion engines, hybrid engines and new electric motors. The integration of the production of the entire range in a single building will allow Ferrari to reorganise and reallocate all production activities more efficiently among its existing facilities in Maranello, increasing its ability to adapt quickly to production needs. The e-building will also produce strategic electrical: high-voltage batteries, electric motors and axles.

The building, designed to achieve the highest levels of energy performance, is powered – among other sources – by more than 3,000 solar panels installed on the roof. By the end of 2024, it will be powered entirely by renewable energy, generated from both internal and external sources with a guarantee of origin. Moreover, the area was acquired and redeveloped without additional land consumption by replacing obsolete and energy-dispersive industrial structures. The integration of the building into the urban context was perfected through an urban redevelopment of more than 100,000 square metres and a redesign of the road infrastructure.

The building also houses a dedicated training space. The training path for people selected for the new lines began two years ago, with the aim of delving into the skills and processes that are needed for the new systems and products, as well as strengthening knowledge related to the electric motor.

The exterior façades and main interior spaces of the e-building were designed by MCA – Mario Cucinella Architects, in synergy with the Ferrari team.

The Research & Development activities related to this new expansion have been also supported by regional and national policy instruments. In particular, the Development Contract managed by Invitalia and the Regional Law for the Promotion of investments in Emilia-Romagna (R.L. 14/2014).
