The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore EV will be the Italian marque’s first all-electric vehicle
Italian luxury automaker Maserati has announced that their Maserati GranTurismo Folgore EV, an all-electric 2-door grand tourer, will launch in 2023. The Italian word “Folgore” translates to “lightning”, and with 1,200 horsepower, it will surely take you from Point A to Point B in a zap.
The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore EV will be one of many electric vehicles set to debut, as the company has claimed that all of their models will go fully electric by 2025. By 2030, Maserati will follow the footsteps of many other automakers and end the production of vehicles built with combustion engines. This was labeled as a “defining moment” by Maserati CEO Davide Grasso.
According to Maserati, the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore EV’s 1200 HP will derive from three electric motors that allows it to accelerate to 62 mph in less than 3.0 seconds while achieving a max speed of 186 mph. The company plans to use the “Folgore” name on a number of their models, including the Grecale SUV and the MC20 supercar.
The Folgore models will be built on a variety of platforms, and not necessarily based on the ones from parent company Stellatis. For example, the Grecale SUV is built on the same Giorgio platform as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, and the electric Folgore will be based on a modified version of it.
Recent photographs show the GranTurismo Folgore in a stealth black shade with neon accents, It holds a shape very similar to the model’s previous version. Although pricing details were left out of the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore EV, we expect it to range on the higher end of the Italian marque’s models.
