Maserati has confirmed that it will go entirely electric in the coming years. Today, Maserati is an Italian luxury vehicle manufacturer. unveiled More information about the electric GranTurismo Folgore coupe.
As expected, the new GranTurismo Folgore will be Maserati’s first all-electric vehicle to hit the streets and its first EV GT model. It’ll arrive before the Grecale electric SUV it announced in March. And while we still don’t have much information on this Italian beauty, the Maserati GT Folgore EV will deliver plenty of power with a tri-motor setup producing 760 horsepower.
The electrified GranTurismo gets all that power from a 92kWh battery and 800V architecture, one that’s capable of 270kW fast-charging speeds. The luxury carmaker says it’ll get around 62 miles of range after five minutes on a charger, which is great. But the number that you need to be aware of is the time from 0-60 MPH, which is approximately 2.7 seconds. Maserati GT Folgore EV’s top speed is 198.9 MPH.
The company provided a model similar to the one described by the company. twin-turbo V6, we’re excited about the electrified option that’s on the way soon. Moreover, both the regular gas and first-ever EV versions have a similar design. They also sit low to the ground.
Maserati actually claims this EV has the lowest sitting, allowing for improved performance, agility and top speeds. For example, most EVs from Tesla and even Porsche have a “skateboard” design with the battery packs sitting under the seats and down the entire underbody.
Maserati Folgore uses a Tbone-shaped battery pack that doesn’t place the batteries under the seat. Maserati says this “zero compromises” approach offers an improved hip-point, so you’ll sit lower in the vehicle for an authentic luxury sportscar feel.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get too many details, and the press release didn’t have a single interior photo. That said, expect a much-improved cabin, along with a 12.2-inch digital gauge cluster, a 12.3-inch infotainment display, and an extra 8.8-inch “comfort display.”
We’re hearing it could cost upwards of $170,000+ when it arrives in the fall of 2023.
