Geneva Motor Show: Ferrari 559 (Electric Hybid) Unveiled

By Jamie Pert - Mar 3, 2010

It is no surprise to see eco-friendly electric hybrid vehicles at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, however it is quite a shock to hear that Ferrari’s latest vehicle falls into this bracket.

The Ferrari 559 features a petrol-electric hybrid engine, this allows it to switch between different ‘modes’, it can run in a zero-emissions electric power mode, petrol power or a mix between the two.

The car itself has a metallic green color, this reiterates the vehicle’s environmental friendliness despite it still featuring a 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine.

From what we can see it seems that Ferrari are looking to offer a ‘green’ option to all of their range by 2015, personally I can’t see Ferrari enthusiast falling for the idea of paying extra for an environmentally friendly version.
