Bugatti continues to refine the successor to the Chiron, as its presentation approaches. This will be the first electrified car to leave the Molsheim factories, and we know when it will happen.
Bugatti’s next car will mark the end of an era that lasted almost 20 years. Indeed, after the Veyron and the Chiron, the career of the venerable W16 four-turbo engine will end.
This end of the cycle also accompanies the end of the Volkswagen cycle, since the French firm has left the group. Thus, Bugatti now belongs to Rimac, a Croatian manufacturer of electric supercars.
The Bugatti-Rimac joint venture is therefore working on a new model bearing the Molsheim coat of arms. We now learn thanks to Engine1 that it is in the middle of 2024 that we will discover this vehicle.

“It will be an extraordinary project, proportionally, technologically, in terms of innovation and the unexpected”said Achim Anscheidt, former head of design. “It’s going to completely surprise people, and it’s a real joy to work on this project.”
We know that Bugatti has been working on this new feature since 2021, when the manufacturer released the Mistral. The objective is to enter a new era, with an engine incorporating a significant electrical part. However, despite a presentation this year, we should not expect it on the roads before 2026.
