Ferrari Debuts New E-Building For Sustainable Future

Ferrari’s latest marvel isn’t a new car but a state-of-the-art factory that will shape the future of the iconic brand.

Inaugurated on June 24, the e-building is set to produce internal combustion engines, hybrids, and Ferrari’s first electric model.

John Elkann, Ferrari’s President, highlighted the importance of this investment, saying, “Investing in our territory is essential to prepare ourselves for Ferrari’s future with confidence and confirms our commitment to Italian excellence and to our country.”

The e-building embodies Ferrari’s strategy of enhancing production flexibility and prioritizing revenue quality over quantity.

And it isn’t just about producing electric cars; it reflects Ferrari’s principle of technological neutrality by integrating the production and development of internal combustion engines, hybrid engines, and new electric motors.

By housing the entire range of production in one facility, Ferrari can reorganise and reallocate production activities more efficiently across its existing Maranello facilities. This integration allows Ferrari to quickly adapt to changing production needs.

The e-building is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that includes the production of high-voltage batteries, electric axles, and electric motors.

The exterior façades and main interior spaces of the e-building were designed by MCA – Mario Cucinella Architects.

Designed to achieve the highest levels of energy performance, the building is powered by more than 3,000 solar panels on its roof, producing 1.3 MW of power.

Ferrari has also adopted innovative solutions to reuse energy and rainwater in the production cycle. For example, over 60 percent of the energy used for battery and motor testing is recovered and redirected to power new processes.

The manufacturing processes in the e-building use collaborative robots that adapt to the operator’s needs and digital twins that create digital replicas of products and processes. 

Various solutions have been implemented to improve employee well-being. Ergonomic workstations, relaxation areas, acoustic and visual comfort, and a balanced mix of natural and artificial lighting are all designed to create a positive work environment.
