Maserati: three EVs arriving in 2023; Ghibli with ax Car News

Maserati will launch three electric models next year, according to the firm, which announced its 2021 sales figures today.

This follows parent company Stellantis’ announcement earlier this month that Maserati would be one of the few of its brands to go electric in all models launched from 2025. The entire range will be electric by 2030.

The electric range, named Folgore, will be led by a new 1,200hp Maserati GranTurismo, due to be unveiled later this year before arriving in 2023. Maserati said it “will offer state-of-the-art technical solutions derived from Formula E, superb performance, comfort and elegance, all typical of the Trident”.

The soft-top equivalent, the Maserati Grancabrio will also arrive next year, the firm has confirmed.

The delayed Maserati Grecale, which will be unveiled shortly, will initially launch with combustion engine powertrains, one of which is a mild hybrid, but will also get an electric version next year.

Beyond next year’s onslaught of models, Maserati has shown off three other models that will have electric variants arriving before 2025: the MC20 and the next-generation Quattroporte and Levante models.

Last year, Maserati sold 24,269 vehicles worldwide, a year-on-year growth of 41% in a global market that has been badly hit by component shortages. The Maserati Levante SUV accounted for 59% of sales while the Maserati Ghibli accounted for 33%. The well-received Maserati MC20 hypercar accounted for 1% of volume. The worldwide market share was 2.4% and the net turnover was 2,021 million euros.

While the Ghibli accounted for a third of sales last year, the model is not in the brand’s plans. The aging sedan was launched in 2013, but the end date of the model has yet to be confirmed.
