More than 300 Ferrari staff to work at new plant.

Ferrari inaugurates its new ‘e-building’ at its Maranello home site where it expects to boost production capacity for its entire range including an upcoming battery-electric vehicle model.

Italy’s President Sergio Mattarella attended the event for the building claiming cutting-edge climate credentials and be staffed by more than 300 Ferrari employees. It is built north of the Ferrari campus, an area redeveloped without additional land consumption by replacing obsolete and energy-dispersive industrial structures.

The facility boasts more than 3,000 solar panels installed on the roof producing 1.3 mW to augment other sustainably produced energy used at the plant. For example, more than 60% of the energy used for battery and motor testing will be recovered in accumulators and redirected to power other processes.

Ferrari Chairman John Elkann says: “We are honored to have President Mattarella with us for the inauguration of the e-building, a plant that combines the centrality of the people in the workplace with respect for the environment. 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.”
