Ferrari shows its hybrid technology developments

At this year’s Geneva Motor Show Ferrari is showing its developments in hybrid technology with the concept car HY-KERS vettura laboratorio (experimental vehicle). This study vehicle is an approach to Ferrari’s wishes to develop hybrid technology without losing sight of the performance and driving involvement of the Rosso Nero’s cars.

According to Ferrari the hybrid project’s objective is also to ensure that the brand will be able to comply with future CO2 emissions standards, especially in the urban cycle, where sports cars are most penalized.

For the HY-KERS vettura laboratorio Ferrari adapted a lightweight hybrid drivetrain to the 599 GTB Fiorano, to try to ensure that the vehicle’s dynamics weren’t affected. It is powered by tri-phase, high-voltage electric motor that combines with a V12 engine, linked by the dual-clutch 7-speed F1 transmission.

Ferrari states that the concept vehicle maintains the high-performance characteristics typical of all Ferraris but, at the same time, it also reduces CO2 emissions on the ECE + EUDC combined cycle by 35 per cent.

As other hybrids the HY-KERS can also use the kinetic energy that results from braking to recharge the batteries.
