21.3.2022Maserati plans to be fully electric by 2030
Italian car manufacturer Maserati has announced its intention to become an all-electric car manufacturer. By 2025, the Stellantis brand will offer a fully electric version of all of its models and, from 2030, it will only sell electric cars.
According to Maserati, this makes it the first Italian luxury car brand to announce its transition to electric. The company's electrification efforts will be called 'Maserati Folgore', the Italian word for lightning.
Images of a prototype of the electric version of the GranTurismo sports coupe during winter test drives have been published by some media in the past week. While some reports stated the electric coupé would be called Folgore, the brand has since clarified that Folgore will be the name of the entire electric series.
This will begin in 2023 with the electric version of the GranTurismo. Electric versions of the MC20 super sports car, the Quattroporte sports saloon and the larger Levante SUV model will follow by 2025.
For the time being, these series are still available in parallel as combustion engines. The company has not yet specified what the purely electric model portfolio will look like from 2030. However, according to Maserati: “All new models of the brand will be developed, designed and produced 100 per cent in Italy and will adopt electric powertrains to bring great innovation and high performance, both typical of Maserati’s DNA.”
