Combustion cars have their days numbered unless you can afford them: Ferrari and Lamborghini want the European Union to make an exception with their supercars

2035 is the year chosen by the European Commission to end gasoline or diesel cars. It will be then when they should stop selling cars of this type. Most manufacturers are already adapting and even put a few years before the end of combustion cars. But not everyone has in mind to make the electrical transition so quickly .

This is the case of Ferrari or Lamborghini, the two mythical luxury car brands. They have such a difference in approach that from Italy they have initiated strong pressure to try to get the European Union to create an exception for the sale of supercars.

Ferrari is not convinced that it will be a completely electric brand, much less in the short-medium term In xiaomist.com Ferrari is not convinced that it will be a completely electric brand, much less in the short-medium term

Less than 10,000 cars a year make a difference?

The matter is not trivial and at stake is part of the business of these giants of the automotive world. " I really do not see that Ferrari is going to be 100% electric and certainly in my life it will not even reach 50 percent," said Louis Camilleri, CEO of Ferrari at the end of 2020.

To act as an intermediary, Mario Draghi has started talks with the European Union with the aim of protecting supercar manufacturers and to see if it is possible to get this exception, Roberto Cingolani, Minister of Ecological Transition, explains to Bloomberg .

Italy is committed to reducing emissions, but considers the supercar sector "a niche" and it remains to be seen how these future restrictions apply to manufacturers that sell less than 10,000 cars a year .

In total, according to data from Cingolani, who was also responsible at Ferrari, he maintains that Ferrari sold about 9,100 cars in 2020, while Lamborghini sales were around 7,400 .

"These cars need a very special technology and need batteries to make the transition," explains the Italian minister. Batteries that are not currently available and would be necessary to produce these electric super sports cars on a large scale.

The European Union is currently in the first phase of this plan to put an end to combustion cars by 2035. It is time for those affected to start a process of debate and put their arguments on the table.

The Commission has not wanted to give wings to this request from the Italian lobby and the spokesmen have limited themselves to saying that "all car manufacturers will have to contribute to this reduction."

However, countries like France have left the door open for the European Union to be flexible in the implementation of this emission reduction. During the IAA show in Munich, the president of the Association of Automobile Manufacturers gave his direct support to this question, arguing that "in the total emissions panorama, these small manufacturers have a practically non-existent role".
