According to foreign media reports, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (U.S. Patent and Trademark Office) has granted Ferrari a new patent. The patent is related to its first electric supercar, showing the detailed layout of its electric supercar. The patent drawings show a low double seater in Ferrari's classic mid-engine layout, but without the engine in the middle. Its entire setup is similar to, but not the same as, the Croatian electric supercar RimacNevera.
Ferrari patent images show a huge mid-mounted battery pack of undetermined capacity. In addition to this, it has a number of small batteries placed on the floor and up to three separate units. All battery modules, including the large midship battery, are mounted on a subframe that is bolted to the vehicle's master cylinder. So all kinds of supercars can use the same system, including pure electric vehicles as well as hybrid vehicles
In addition to stacking battery modules to create a "mid-engine" electric supercar, the patent also shows that smaller modules could fit under the passenger compartment floor. Additionally, Ferrari has described a hybrid configuration that would retain not only a mid-mounted battery pack, but a front-mounted combustion engine.
Ferrari says that the rear of the subframe, where the large battery is located, slopes slightly upwards to help create "negative lift" or downforce at the rear of the car, and that this area can also be used to cool the battery. The patent states that the battery pack will remain parallel to the platform when stacked, so it can be perfectly heat-exchanged with the platform. The diffuser's side strips could be the perfect structure to extract heat from the battery, like a giant heatsink.
Ferrari believes that the floor-standing battery pack is suitable for the use of cylindrical cells. However, the patent states that the rear battery pack can be customized by the automaker to be assembled with multiple forms of batteries, thus combining the advantages of each battery
