Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Exterior Design Fully Revealed

This is the start of the Maserati electric era as the next generation GranTurismo will usher in the “Folgore” model lineup without the combustion engine. In the shocking teaser video, the electric GT is shown without camouflage to reveal a sleek yet familiar design. We can easily see the charging port under the left taillight where the owner will charge 100 miles in 10 minutes or 100 kilometers in five minutes.

We were reminded that the GranTurismo Folgore will make 1,200 horsepower from the tri-motor setup, which will be great for 0 to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds and a 0-100 km/h run in 2.7 seconds. Flat, the first Maserati EV will exceed 200 mph (320 km/h). This video is also a good opportunity to hear the artificial sound provided by an electric sports car in an attempt to mimic the sound of a large-capacity combustion engine.

For a car coming out in 2023, some would be surprised to see it has cues clearly borrowed from the current GranTurismo released in 2007. We’d argue that’s not necessarily a bad thing as the low-slung coupe that came out was still pretty. despite his respectable age. Remember, the petrol-fueled GT hasn’t been on sale since 2019 because the Zeda special edition is the last of the Tipo M145 type.

Although the company with the trident logo hasn’t fully disclosed the interior yet, we can see a nice part of the two-tone cabin with individual rear seats. There’s a center console extending from front to back, positioned above the center tunnel where the Folgore houses the battery pack. Maserati is also planning a petrol-fueled GranTurismo – possibly with a Nettuno V6 engine – which will obviously replace the battery with a driveshaft.

Every Maserati will offer an EV version in the middle of the decade leading up to 2030 when the good combustion engines will be downgraded entirely. Meanwhile, the all-new GranTurismo will soon be followed by the GranCabrio while the Ghilbi will be discontinued in 2024. The V8 engine will also go the dodo way, and we recently learned that the next Quattroporte will be smaller than today’s older sedan.
