  • Maserati has announced the 2021 Ghibli hybrid sedan, the first model in the Italian automaker's push toward electrification.
  • The car has a 48-volt hybrid system powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and electric supercharger, and it features light-blue accents to denote its hybrid powertrain.
  • The Ghibli hybrid will be followed by the all-electric GranTurismo and GranCabrio next year.

    Maserati is planning to revamp its lineup in the coming years with hybridization and electrification, along with a new MC20 mid-engine sports car. We'll be seeing a hybrid powertrain from the Italian automaker first in the Ghibli sedan, and it'll be followed by the electric GranTurismo and GranCabrio sports cars next year.

    The Ghibli's 48-volt hybrid powertrain, which has regenerative-braking capability, is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder equipped with an electric supercharger. The result is 325 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, sent to the rear wheels through a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Maserati claims a zero-to-60-mph sprint in 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 158 mph.

    Maserati is using a light-blue color to denote its cars equipped with hybrid technology. On the Ghibli hybrid, it's found on the side air ducts, the brakes, and the trident logo on the rear pillars. Hybrid models are also distinguished with a slimmer front grille design and updated taillights.

    The light blue from the exterior elements also finds its way onto embroidered seams of the Ghibli hybrid's seats. The Ghibli hybrid is introducing a new 10.0-inch touchscreen with the new Maserati Connect program, which features over-the-air updates and monitors the car's safety.

    The 2021 Maserati Ghibli hybrid replaces the diesel model, and unfortunately we won't see it here in the States. Production will start in the second half of this year, and it will be on sale in other markets by the end of the year.
