Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] CEO and Chairman Sergio Marchionne has revealed that most of the Italian marque’s cars will be hybrids after 2019. The move will allow Ferrari to boost production beyond 10,000 cars annually, the limit that triggers stricter carbon dioxide emissions regulations that major automakers must comply with.
Tesla [NSDQ:TSLA] has agreed to acquire a German firm that specializes in automation. The automaker said it’s been searching for just such a firm since its decision to boost production to 500,000 units per year by 2018.
Mercedes-Benz has been spotted testing its new G-Class once again. While the design doesn’t look to be changing much, the internals are completely new. This represents the biggest overhaul of the G-Class since its launch almost four decades ago.
