While leading supercar manufacturers McLaren, Porsche and Ferrari all have hybrid cars on the market, smaller supercar marque Pagani has revealed that at this stage, it doesn’t see hybrid powertrains in its cars.
While speaking with Top Gear recently, the company’s founder Horacio Pagani said that he isn’t a fan of hybrid cars at the moment and doesn’t think the technology is ready to be used by super sports cars.
“I don’t like hybrid cars at the moment, the technology is not ready. A sports car must have, by definition, the lightness as one of the features, the batteries and the electric engines are to heavy at the moment to justify the use,” Horacio said.
With this being said, Horacio did say that he will keep an eye on hybrid powertrain developments in the coming years and didn’t rule out electric motors and batteries being used by Pagani models at some stage.
“So at the moment I don’t see and hybrid application in our cars, but this is just my decision, let’s see how the technology will be in the next few years.”
