The new Maserati Grecale Folgore is an electric sports SUV for 2023 Car News

The all-electric Maserati Grecale Folgore (for lightning) will land in dealerships a year after the combustion car, as one of six new electric Maserati models expected by 2025.

Revealed today alongside the standard Maserati Grecale, which has four-cylinder and pure-petrol V6 mild-hybrid engine options, the Grecale Folgore will take on Porsche’s upcoming Macan EV and Audi Q6 E-tron at it goes on sale next summer.

It will initially be sold alongside electric versions of the reborn Granturismo and open-top Grancabrio, which will be unveiled later this year, and joined before 2025 by purely EV versions of the Maserati MC20 supercar, Quattroporte sports sedan and more. large SUV Levante.

From 2025, Maserati will only launch purely electric cars, joining the other European premium brands under the Stellantis umbrella: DS, Lancia and Alfa Romeo.

Technical details of the Grecale Folgore remain largely under wraps this far from launch, but Maserati promises it will weigh up to 590 lb-ft – almost as much as the Audi E-tron S, which cracks 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds – and has a 105kWh battery, which could provide a range of over 350 miles.

It’s also unclear whether Maserati’s reengineering of the Giorgio platform to accommodate an electric drivetrain has any implications for the future of the similarly sized Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which runs on the same platform.

The architecture was originally developed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) before the company merged with PSA to create Stellantis. It cost around £800m to develop, but so far it has only been rolled out to the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio, and has not been listed by Stellantis as one of the platforms that it will use when launching a wave of bespoke electric vehicles. years to come.

The Grecale Folgore will be largely identical to the combustion car inside and out, except for the option of an exclusive Rame Folgore paint finish which changes color depending on the angle light and the use of recycled fishing nets throughout the interior.
