For the first time, a prototype of the all-electric Maserati GranTurismo Folgore coupé showed itself on the streets of Rome today. During the Rome E-Prix 2022, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares drove the prototype to the city’s Formula E circuit.
The new GranTurismo will be the first model in Maserati’s history to rely on 100% electric power. Production of the model will take place at the Mirafiori factory and the new Maserati coupé will be launched in 2023.
The coupé is a true icon for the brand and will receive the characteristic Maserati sound, plus advanced technical solutions, sublime performance, comfort and elegance… all features that are so typical of the brand with the Trident logo.
Maserati looks ahead to the future
Entering Formula E was a natural choice for Maserati as it would make it the first Italian brand to compete in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. Maserati will also become the first Italian luxury brand to produce 100% electric cars. The electric line-up will be complete by 2025 and the entire Maserati range will be fully electric by 2030.
Maserati produces a series of unique cars that are instantly recognizable by their special personality. Thanks to their style, technology and innate exclusiveness, they satisfy the most demanding tastes and have always been a reference point within the global automotive industry. Together they form a rich tradition of successful cars, with each individual model redefining an Italian sports car in terms of design, performance, comfort, elegance and safety. The models are currently available internationally in more than seventy countries. Ambassadors of this heritage include the top-of-the-range Quattroporte, the Ghibli sports sedan, the Levante – Maserati’s first SUV – and the Grecale, the new ‘everyday exceptional’ SUV. All models are characterized by the use of the highest quality materials and advanced technologies. The Ghibli, Levante and Gecale are now also available as a hybrid. With this, Maserati now has a complete model range, with four-cylinder hybrid engines plus V6 and V8 petrol units, with rear-wheel and four-wheel drive, all of which reflect the performance DNA of the trident brand. The absolute top model is the MC20 super sports car, which is powered by the groundbreaking Nettuno V6 engine, with which Maserati makes F1-derived technologies available in an engine of a standard production car for the first time.
