- Maserati will launch an electric version of the GranTurismo called Folgore.
- It claims 1200 horsepower from three electric motors and a top speed of 186 mph.
- Folgore EV versions of other Maserati models will arrive within the next few years.
Maserati will launch a range of electric models that will wear the Folgore name—the Italian word for lightning. To emphasize these EVs' focus on performance, Maserati says that the upcoming GranTurismo Folgore will offer over 1200 horsepower from three electric motors and claims it will accelerate to 62 mph in less than 3.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 186 mph. A photo of a camouflaged GranTurismo prototype shows the four-seat coupe's styling ahead of its official reveal that will take place later this year.
There will also be Folgore versions of the upcoming Grecale SUV and the MC20 supercar coming within the next year, along with a convertible GranCabrio version of the GranTurismo. The next generation Quattroporte sedan and Levante SUV will be offered only as EVs and are slated to arrive in 2025. Maserati did not mention the Ghibli sedan as part of its future-product plan and confirmed that it will eventually disappear from the lineup after this generation runs its course.
These Folgore models will ride on various platforms and not all of these upcoming EVs will adopt parent company Stellantis' range of new EV-specific platforms. The Grecale, for instance, rides on the same Giorgio platform as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the electric Folgore model will use a modified version of this architecture.
By 2030, all Maserati models will be electric and gasoline engines will no longer be part of the lineup. The new GranTurismo, though, will still offer a gasoline version. Look for more details to come soon on these future models, as the Grecale and Grecale Folgore will debut next week.
