According to Italian outlet Il Messaggero, Fiat Chrysler chief executive Mike Manley has emerged as the favorite to land the top job at Ferrari, following Louis Camilleri’s shocking retirement.

The former Ferrari boss is currently recovering at home from COVID-19, after a brief stint in the hospital. Right now, his position is temporarily being held by FCA chairman John Elkann while Ferrari searches for a permanent replacement.

However, if this recent report is to be believed, Elkann is looking to entrust Ferrari, his family’s most valuable asset, to the 56-year old Manley, a British businessman who took over as FCA CEO in July of 2018.

The Italian paper also says that Manley is the type of candidate that could revive Ferrari’s fortunes in Formula One, where the Scuderia has failed to win a single race all year. Meanwhile, both Ferrari and FCA have declined to comment on the report.

Ferrari will hold a pre-scheduled board meating tomorrow, while a meeting scheduled for next week could decide who the next CEO will be, reports Autonews Europe.

Last week, an F1 spokesman dismissed rumors that ex-Lamborghini boss Stefano Domenicali could take Camilleri’s job, stating that Domenicali was looking forward to starting his new job as F1 CEO on January 1st, just as planned.

Another candidate for the Ferrari CEO job, according to Italian media, is Maserati chief operating officer, Davide Grasso, although whether he makes more sense for them than Manley remains to be seen.


Daimler’s EV production network is ready to begin manufacturing Mercedes-EQ models across the globe using existing plants. Come 2022, the carmaker’s portfolio will hold eight fully-electric Mercedes-EQ vehicles.

Sitting at the head of the table will be the EQS flagship sedan, which will go into production in Sindelfingen, Germany, early next year. Other production sites (for various models) include Hungary, China and the U.S.

Mercedes will also build its own battery systems, at locations in Germany, Poland, China and the United States.

These fully electric models will be built in the same factories as electrified, gasoline and diesel cars. According to the German brand, plug-in hybrids and battery electric vehicles should account for more than half of its sales by the year 2030.

As for how production is being spread out, the EQS is getting assembled in Germany, as previously stated, but also in Vance (Alabama, USA) – alongside the EQE (also manufactured in Bremen and Beijing starting next year), in 2022. The EQC meanwhile, which is already in production, is being assembled in Bremen (Germany), as well as Beijing (China).

The smaller EQB compact SUV will go into production in Kecskemet, Hungary and Beijing in 2021. The EQA will join the EQB at the Beijing plant, although its production has already started in Rastatt, Germany.

“With its ‘Electric First’ strategy, Mercedes-Benz is consistently on the path to CO₂ neutrality and is investing heavily in transformation. Our vehicle portfolio becomes electric and thus also our global production network with vehicle and battery factories. We intend to lead in the field of e-mobility and focus in particular on battery technology. We are taking a comprehensive approach, ranging from research and development to production, and also including strategic cooperation,” said Daimler board member Markus Schafer.

“Our team spent months living with and observing truck customers at their homes, on job sites and on the weekends,” said the brand’s chief product platform and operations officer, Hau Thai-Tang. “Using electrification, we realized we could now give customers something they had long wanted but didn’t think was possible – tremendous power, great fuel economy and all-new capabilities to make their F-150 even more productive.”

In addition to the PowerBoost, which can function as a mobile generator with the standard Pro Power Onboard system, the 2021 F-150 can be ordered with five other engines. The lineup includes the 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6, 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6. All are available with two- and four-wheel drive, save for the latter that only comes with 4WD, and they return an EPA-estimated 20, 21, 19, 20 and 23 mpg (11.8/11.2/12.4/11.8/10.2 l/100 km) combined respectively in the 4×4 versions.
