The electrical model, which is able to carry the Folgore designation, Italian for “Lightning,” is confirmed to be coming with a three-motor setup with one motor up entrance and two on the rear. The setup will run at 800 volts, that means high-speed charging might be attainable, and peak output might be over 1,200 hp—sure, hypercar territory. A teaser video from early 2020 hints on the sound the powertrain will make.
A GranTurismo Convertible (GranCabrio in some markets) can be deliberate. Count on it to reach in late 2023 or early 2024.
The final GranTurismo reached the tip of manufacturing in 2019 after a 12-year run. The specialist plant in Modena the place it was constructed is now churning out the MC20. The brand new GranTurismo might be constructed at a plant in Turin.
Be aware, the GranTurismo Folgore will not be the one electrical Maserati obtainable shortly. The automaker in March revealed a small crossover dubbed the Grecale. The Porsche Macan rival will begin gross sales later this 12 months with internal-combustion energy however will spawn an electrical Grecale Folgore variant in 2023.
