Ferrari sold a record 13,221 cars in 2022
Ferrari deliveries hit a new high in 2022 at 13,221 cars – a year that saw record numbers for most brands in the exotic segment.
Despite the war in Ukraine, energy and inflation crises and supply disruptions, Ferrari managed to increase its deliveries in 2022 by 2,066 cars, an increase of 18.5% compared to the 2021 result.
The figure is based on deliveries of nine modes, three of which were hybrids, the automaker said. The balance also includes deliveries of special small series models such as the Monza SP1 and SP2 and the Daytona SP3.
This does not include deliveries of the new Purosangue SUV, which could potentially become the Prancing Horse’s most popular model due to its broader target audience. The Purosangue will begin deliveries in the third quarter of 2023 and will likely see Ferrari set new records.
Impressively, Ferrari grew revenue faster than deliveries, with net earnings for 2022 coming in at 5.095 billion euros (about $5.5 billion), up 19.3% year over year. This resulted in a net profit of 939 million euros ($1.022 billion), which Ferrari said was also a record.
Ferrari said deliveries were up in all geographic regions. The biggest growth was in China, where sales rose 72.6% year-on-year. America also recorded strong growth with a plus of 21.8% compared to the previous year.
Barring perhaps a global recession, there is little headwind for Ferrari. However, a switch to electric powertrains can also prove challenging, as the sound of a Ferrari engine is one of the most alluring aspects of the brand’s cars. Ferrari plans to launch its first electric vehicle in 2025, likely an SUV or some sort of grand tourer, and according to patent information, the automaker is exploring the use of an advanced sound generator for its near-silent models.
Before we see any Ferrari EV, the automaker will release a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale. Work is also underway on a successor to the special edition LaFerrari, a Roma convertible, and possibly a successor to the 812.
