There will be many years until the next generation Bugatti Chiron will be launched. But it is quite adamant that the next generation of the Automotive Masterpiece would be electrified. CEO Wolfgang Durheimar believes it is a necessity to enhance the performance beyond the current Bugatti Chiron. Going by the numbers Bugatti Chiron can sprint from 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds. This is quite as astonishing for a car that weighs nearly 2 tons. The car has a top speed of 261mph. Powering this marvelous piece of engineering is the 8.0-litre W16 engine. The engine produces 1479bhp at 6,750rpm and 1600 Nm of torque from just 2,000rpm.

Durheimer indicated that the Electrification is inevitable. This is a smart move considering the advancement in the EV market space and the regulations. Though Wolfgang isn’t quite sure about the fully electric vehicle as for now. Wolfgang believes that there won’t be any car that could match the mechanical capabilities of Chiron. During the development of the Bugatti Chiron, a hybrid Engine was on the table. To overlap the performance that Veyron offered it is quite necessary. But they managed to do it with upgrading the engine’s component.

It should not be a news if they opt for a hybrid powertrain. McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918 are among pinnacle and employs hybrid powertrain. So using the Hybrid powertrain they extract the hypercar performance. For instance, P1 is powered by twin turbo 3.8-litre V8 engine paired with electric motors. Together they produce 903bhp and is capable of 0-62mph in 2.8secs, 0-124mph in 6.8sec and 0-186mph in 16.5 secs. Also apart from the next generation Chiron there is also a rumor for another car (Galiber) from the firm. This could delay the launch of Next gen Chiron even more. Bugatti Chiron is limited to just 500 and of those 280 have been delivered to their customers. Don’t expect another model to be launched before 2024.
