Bugatti looks to electrify their next Chiron

Bugatti looks to electrify their next Chiron

Bugatti has told reporters that their next Chiron will have some sort of electrification when it arrives in the market. Although that’s at least eight years away, Bugatti admitted that electrification was the only way the Chiron’s current shattering performance could be enhanced.

Just so that we are on the same page, the Chiron can dispatch the 100kmph mark in just 2.5secs, before maxing out at an eye-popping 420kmph. These snazzy numbers are thanks to an eight-litre W16 motor with four turbo chargers strapped on for a scintillating power output of 1479bhp and 1598Nm!

CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer, said, “Electrification will happen. The next car is a long way from being developed, but the way battery and electric motor technology is moving on – as well as regulations – it seems certain that the next car will be electrified in some way. It will still be too soon for a full electric car, I think – but electrification will happen.”

Rivals such as the LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder have already resorted to incorporating hybrid tech to bump-up performance. These engines are considerably smaller with lesser outputs, but crack the 100kmph barrier in 2.8secs due to the significant benefits of being electrified.

On a lighter note, Durheimer admitted that there will probably never be a car with the pure mechanical capabilities of the Chiron. The fact that it may never be beaten in pure mechanical terms makes it incredibly desirable, which is why CEO Durheimer is considering buying one too.
