Ferrari to reveal production hybrid model

News of a future hybrid from Ferrari is nothing new, but an actual date is now planned when the Italian supercar manufacturer will reveal the 599 Super Hybrid. And it’s close too, during the first week of March at the Geneva Motor Show, according to Ferrari CEO Luca di Montezemolo.

The announcement came during the recent unveiling of Ferrari’s new F10 Formula One car, which is appropriate as it was during the 2009 F1 season that Ferrari first began using its Kinetic Energy Recovery System — a hybrid technology that captures energy normally lost to braking.

It’s currently unclear what kind of hybrid setup Ferrari will show off in its 599 super hybrid, but something similar to the F1-tech KERS system seems likely, and Ferrari has also been researching all-wheel-drive hybrids as well.
