The EV revolution is in full swing as Italian automaker Maserati jumps into the electric vehicle marketplace. Maserati is set to launch its first set of fully electric cars, the 2024 GranTurismo Folgore sports car and the Grecale Folgore SUV, later this year. All Maserati's EVs will feature the Folgore name, which means “lightning” in Italian.

The GranTurismo Folgore will be launched alongside a petrol version of the car as the start of the company's transition to becoming an all-electric brand by 2030.

The GranTurismo’s powertrain is developed with Formula E-derived technology for improved energizing flow and higher power efficiency. It boasts a flash of speed from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 325 km/h. Its cutting-edge 800-volt battery powers three potent 300-kw permanent magnet motors, allowing drivers to travel up to 450 km on one full battery charge.

GranTurismo Folgore buyers can also receive their own charging wall box for installation at home or at another preferred charging location. The wall box guarantees charging capacity from 3 kW up to 22 kW of charging capacity and features charging load balancing technology.

For a more everyday option, the Grecale Folgore is a 100% electric SUV that boasts top-of-the-line features and performance elements.

Equipped with a powerful 105kw/h battery capacity, the Grecale Folgore can deliver over 500 horsepower and a maximum speed of over 200km/h. The SUV's 800Nm torque is immediately available at the driver's feet, thanks to its electric propulsion system designed to also ensure zero emissions. In addition to impressive performance, the Grecale also offers the same wall box technology for charging at home or by the station.

The luxury car manufacturer has also incorporated seat material called Econyl, produced from recycled fishnets recovered from the seas. It features a unique laser-cut design inspired by the elegant moves of a ballerina. Plus, drivers can seamlessly connect their smartphone and Alexa to easily stay connected while driving.
