The new GranTurismo Folgore will be the first car in Maserati history
DETROIT — Luxury auto brand Maserati plans to offer electric versions of its entire lineup by 2025, starting next year with a new GranTurismo EV featuring more than 1,200 horsepower, the company said Thursday.
The GranTurismo “Folgore” will be the first all-electric vehicle for the famed Italian brand, which is owned by Stellantis, formerly Fiat Chrysler. It’s expected to have a top speed of nearly 190 mph and achieve 0-62 mph in under three seconds, the company said.
After the GranTurismo, Maserati will introduce the all-electric Grecale midsize SUV and a Grancabrio GT car. By 2025, Maserati also plans to add electric versions of its MC20 supercar, Quattroporte sedan and Levante SUV.
Maserati CEO Davide Grasso on Thursday described the EV transformation, including its target of going totally electric by 2030, as a “defining moment” for the more than century-old automaker.
Nearly all major automakers, specifically luxury ones such as Maserati, have announced plans for EVs to represent a majority, if not all, of their sales by 2030.
Preview images of the electric GranTurismo released Thursday showed a smooth exterior design for the four-seat coupe.
Maserati did not release expected pricing for the new EVs. Its current traditional models range from about $78,000 to more than $200,000.
