Will Pagani Engineer A Hybrid In The Near Future?

It doesn't look like it.

Pagani has risen to become one of the craziest supercar automakers in the world, but vehicles always need to improve and other supercar brands are looking towards hybrids for the future. But Pagani isn’t like any other automaker out there. So will the brand create a supercar hybrid in the near future? According to an interview with Top Gear, Pagani founder Horacio Pagani isn’t interested in hybrids at the moment, but believes that supercars using battery power may come to life later on.

When asked whether hybrids were good or bad, Pagani stated: "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 too heavy at the moment to justify the use." Unlike other automakers, Pagani doesn’t make a lot of vehicles a year, so a model that doesn’t have the same supercar feel could potentially ruin the brand. "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."
