  • Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna promises the company's future electric car won't be "silent."

  • Ferrari's EV is aimed to offer the same "unique" experience as their combustion engine vehicles.

  • Other automakers like Hyundai and Dodge have also explored options for engine noise in EVs.

Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna said the carmaker's future electric car won't be quiet like other EVs on the road.

"Electric cars are not silent," Vigna said during an interview with CNBC's Squawk Box on Tuesday. "If you know the technology, you know you can do a lot of things also with electric cars," he added.

While electric cars, including Teslas, are known for being shockingly quiet on the road, the Ferrari boss said his company is working on a prototype for its electric car that will be far from silent.

He said the Italian company's EV would maintain the same "unique" experience as its other vehicles, which are known for the rumble of its engines and run off traditional internal combustion engines.
