Maserati Grecale Folgore SUV EV & GranTurismo Folgore EV

The Maserati Grecale Folgore SUV EV and the GranTurismo Folgore EV will be the brand’s first two electric cars. The Maserati Grecale Folgore SUV is due to go on sale in summer 2024.

The Maserati Grecale Folgore SUV will have a 105 kWh battery, 500 hp of power, 800 Nm of torque, and a top speed of more than 124 mph.

The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore performance car features a platform developed from Formula E with a ‘T-shaped’ battery, with no battery cells positioned under passengers in order to ensure the lowest possible centre of gravity.

The GranTurismo will have an 800V battery system and three 300 kW electric motors – one at the front and two at the rear – delivering up to 750 hp of power and a huge 1,350 Nm of torque – resulting in 0-60 mph acceleration in just 2.7 seconds.

The GranTurismo Folgore is expected to have an electric driving range of up to 279 miles and ultra-rapid charging that can add 62 miles in around five minutes.

Maserati – part of Stellantis – says that electrification will play a key role in its future strategy, with a commitment to produce electric versions of all its models by 2025, and full-electric vehicles only by 2030.

As well as the Grecale Folgore and the GranTurismo Folgore, other all-electric models expected from Maserati will include the open-top GranCabrio, due to be revealed later this year, followed by pure-EV versions of the Maserati MC20 supercar, Quattroporte sports saloon and larger Levante SUV.
