Bugatti EV not until next decade to launch – report

Bugatti Fans are expected to have to wait until after 2030 for the company to launch its first all-electric vehicle, as it is currently focusing on hybridisation.

In an interview with AutocarBugatti design director Achim Anschiedt said the company was “considering the next step for the hybrid model”, and that “everything else is a bit over the top”.

This hybrid successor for W16 support Chiron hypercar is said to launch in 2027 and is expected to cost more than 5 million euros ($A7.72 million).

“It is almost irresponsible to our beloved customer base [to look beyond the next car]Mr. Anschiedt said.

Bugatti’s vice president of design, Frank Heyl, stopped short of explicitly confirming whether Bugatti’s first electric vehicle (EV) will be pushed back beyond 2030, but said the company is currently focused on “this decade, with hybrid vehicles”.

This contradicts what Bugatti Rimac CEO Mate Rimac said Autocar in July 2021, where he says there will be all-electric Bugattis within a decade.

Heyl said that when the all-electric Bugatti arrives, it will “blow everyone away”.

Rimac also starts all-electric deliveries Nevera hypercar in August this year. The first customer is former German-Finnish Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg.

Rimac also says there will be a gym and training center, nursery, auditorium, conference hall, education room, rooftop garden, command center, VR room and several dark project rooms secret.
