The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore, the legendary Italian marque’s first totally battery-powered vehicle, will go on sale next year. As a result, Maserati has finally decided to join the electric revolution. The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore electric vehicle isn’t quite ready for prime time yet, but the company has teased what it will look like and what type of performance we can expect. The latest photographs reveal a car that is buried in shade and camouflage, but it has a shape that is very similar to the model’s previous edition.
Maserati Granturismo Folgore
Maserati has begun a teaser campaign for its first all-electric car, the next-generation Granturismo Folgore, and has released new information about its electrification strategy. Maserati Folgore, Italian for lightning, will be the first Italian luxury automobile brand to create full-electric versions, according to the Stellantis-owned firm.
In the teaser photographs, it appears to be quite elegant. The electric sports vehicle has a huge but familiar grille, which is thankfully not as large as the one on the new BMW i7. While more design features of the Granturismo Folgore are difficult to identify due to the dark nature of these teaser images, Maserati did offer some amazing technological specifications for its first electric vehicle.

Maserati Granturismo Folgore Details
The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore electric sports car is powered by three electric motors that produce 880 kW (1,200 horsepower). It can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in less than 3 seconds, with a top speed of 186 mph. The Granturismo Folgore’s range and battery capacity have yet to be revealed by the Italian automaker, although the car is said to be capable of charging at a rate of 300 kW. By 2025, Maserati intends to introduce an all-electric “Folgore” edition of all of its cars and SUVs.
‘Folgore means “lightning” in Italian, which is a very fantastic name for an electric vehicle. Despite the fact that we don’t know anything about its drivetrain, the name suggests it could be a strong machine. The fact that it will be powered by three electric motors just adds to our belief. In addition, there will be an 800-Volt electrical system in this room.
Folgore models will be built on a variety of platforms, and not all of these prospective EVs will use Stellantis’ new EV-specific platforms.For example, The Grecale, 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.
Maserati’s new EV, the Granturismo Folgore, will be the first to hit global markets, with EV adaptations of the GranCabrio, Grecale, and MC20 also in the works. By 2030, the automaker wants to have an all-electric lineup, with all-electric versions of the next-generation Quattroporte and Levante on the way by 2025. The Ghibli, on the other hand, is expected to reach the end of its production cycle with the present model, with a replacement model likely.
It’s unclear how and when the full details of Maserati Granturismo Folgore like pricing, and specifications will be announced for that keep tuned.
