Maserati's forthcoming EV lineup looks like something out of 'Tron'

The luxury carmaker is introducing a range of EV models dubbed Folgore and plans on going fully electric by 2030.

As most automakers transition towards electric vehicles, Italian luxury brand, Maserati, has decided it’s coming with them, throwing its hat into the ring with an upcoming series of all-electric models dubbed Folgore — Italian for “Lighting.”

Here’s a look at the next generation Gran Turismo, which will debut sometime in 2023 in both coupe and GranCabrio convertible styles.Maserati

Plans to transition Maserati’s lineup to EVs took shape in 2019, when the automaker first announced it would create a hybrid-electric Ghibli sedan — a vehicle that’s only available in Europe. Now the Italian brand has a clearer road map towards an electric future with the Folgore line.

The GranTurismo will launch in 2023 as the first vehicle in the Folgore line — this will be followed by new EV model, a Greyscale SUV (also slated for a 2023 release), as well as an electric treatment of the Levante, among other electric versions of its convertibles and sport sedans.


The GranTurismo will be produced at Maserati’s Mirafiori plant in Turin, Italy as that has become the hub for the automaker’s electric campaign after receiving around $807 M.

Additionally Maserati intends on offering electric options for all of its models by 2025 and making the transition to EV-only models by 2030.


The GranTurismo Folger is no slouch when it comes to specs either:

- 1,200 HP

- 0-60 in just over 2 seconds

- Top speed of 186 mph

- An electric tri-motor powertrain

- A body constructed from lightweight, multi-materials for boosted speed
