Nothing inherently bad in having two powerplants. On the contrary, this way one can take advantage of the pros of both solutions. Surely, there is a weight and complexity penalty, but there are many advantages, some of which you have mentioned yourself. According to the company, there won't be an electric Ferrari until 2025 at the earliest, and that will still depend on the state of technology at that time: https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/future-cars/a30208385/electric-ferrari-coming-after-2025/ For now though pure electrics have some big disadvantages (high speed performance, range, recharging time, and for us enthusiasts the lack of a distinct driving character - all electric motors feel the same - and sound). Hybrids preserve the ICE and add performance and eco credentials (most of us don't care about the latter, but Governments and manufacturers do). PS: I too prefer the solution found in the LaFerrari.
