Italian car manufacturer SCRAPS plans for electric cars as they ‘lack emotion’

AN ITALIAN car manufacturer has admitted in an interview that it won’t be producing electric cars in the future.

It said that after a four-year study into EVs, they didn’t fit in with its objectives and that they ‘lack emotion.’

In an interview with Autocar, Pagani said that it has been studying a possible electric model in detail, but that they are too heavy and that most of the energy it takes to make them isn’t sustainably produced.

Pagani builds ultra-exclusive hypercars for the very wealthy that use Mercedes V12 petrol engines.

Its models, such as the Huayra, cost around £2million each and are hand-built in Italy.

Company boss Horacio Pagani told Mark Tisshaw at Autocar: “At the moment, 90% of energy is produced without renewables.

“It’s silly to think that only a few supercars [in the world] with ICEs (internal combustion engines) can have a negative impact on the climate when 90% of energy is produced in a bad way.”

And as Motors Editor Rob Gill pointed out when he drove the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica recently, supercar and hypercar makers have the biggest problem when it comes to EVs.

It’s an issue that Pagani admitted to Autocar he is worried about too.

“I own a Tesla to understand EVs, and it’s not necessary to have such high performance in them,” he said.

“The challenge is to make an EV that gives good emotion like a normal ICE.”

Supercars and hypercars trade on their looks and the way they drive, but also very much on how they sound.

Without a V12 engine, a Pagani is a very different prospect.

The current aim is that all new cars sold in Europe and Britain will be electric from 2030.

Although still behind petrol and diesel, electric car sales have grown massively in the past year.
