When it comes to hybrid and electric drivetrains, Aston Martin and Ferrari are some of the most intriguing car companies. Yes, Ferrari has more than one model, powered by a hybrid powertrain, but a fully electric version is still out of the question. Or rather, it was. According to the latest intel, Ferrari is indeed preparing to launch their first fully electric model, in 2025. As for Aston Martin, their Valhalla is said to undergo substantial revisions, following its debut, set for 2023, foreshadowing the brand’s first EV, set to make an appearance in 2025 – the same time as Ferrari.

Both Ferrari and Aston Martin take similar steps towards electrification
They will effectively become direct competitors on the EV front

Although both companies produce exclusive performance vehicles, they were never really considered direct competitors. When we talk about high-performance cars, Ferrari has always been a direct competitor to Lamborghini, while Aston Martin has often been pitted against what Jaguar had to offer in that segment.

Aston Martin’s "Project Horizon" will spawn 10 new models by 2023
Among them will be plug-in hybrids, mild hybrids, and EVs, which will share a platform

However, the current strategies of both companies will make them direct competitors in the EV supercar segment. Aston Martin is on the offensive, implementing its “Project Horizon”, which, by 2023, will spawn 10 new models. Many of them will be electrified, although we are being assured that they will still be internal combustion engines working in the brand’s sports cars. Among the 10 new cars, will be plug-in hybrids, mild-hybrids, as well as EVs, based on a flexible skateboard architecture, which would accommodate different body styles.

As for the Valhalla, the in-house designed 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 may be replaced by the AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8. To be more specific, the Valhalla may receive a more powerful version of the hybrid powertrain, powering the Mercedes AMG GT73 4Matic. Given that Ferrari is already pushing a 1,000 horsepower in their SF90, we expect no less than the Valhalla. This still means that the Valhalla will be a hybrid and not an EV. However, the Valhalla might end up evolving into the brand’s first hyper EV, in 2025.

Ferrari will also give us their first EV
This will also happen in 2025

As for Ferrari, 2025 will definitely see a fully electric Ferrari. No details are available at the moment, other than the “when”. At the same time, Ferrari was caught testing a new LaFerrari test mule, believed to be the next V-12 hybrid flagship model. Despite the direction everybody is heading, Ferrari promises that it will keep making the V-12, at least for now.

Despite rarely being uttered in the same breath, it seems Aston Martin and Ferrari are on their way to becoming competitors in the high-performance EV segment. They are already taking similar steps towards the eventual transition to electrification, while still choosing to equip their flagship models with internal combustion engines.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
