Maserati GranTurismo Folgore EV Claims 1200 Horsepower and a Top Speed of 186 MPH

By 2025, Maserati's entire lineup will be available in electric form, including the Grecale, MC20, Levante, and Quattroporte.

  • Maserati will introduce the Folgore, an electric version of the GranTurismo.
  • It boasts 1200 horsepower and a top speed of 186 mph, courtesy of three electric motors.
  • Other Maserati models will receive Folgore EV versions in the coming years.

Maserati will introduce a line of electric vehicles bearing the Folgore moniker—the Italian word for lightning. To emphasize the performance-oriented nature of these EVs, Maserati claims that the upcoming GranTurismo Folgore will generate over 1200 horsepower from three electric motors and will accelerate to 62 mph in less than 3.0 seconds and top out at 186 mph. A photo of a camouflaged GranTurismo prototype reveals the styling of the four-seat coupe ahead of its official unveiling later this year.

Additionally, Folgore versions of the upcoming Grecale SUV and MC20 supercar will be available within the next year, as will a convertible GranCabrio GranTurismo. The next-generation Quattroporte sedan and Levante SUV will be available exclusively as electric vehicles when they launch in 2025. Maserati made no reference to the Ghibli sedan in its future product plans and confirmed that it will eventually be phased out of the lineup once this generation concludes.

These Folgore models will be built on a variety of different platforms, and not all of these upcoming EVs will utilize parent company Stellantis' new EV-specific platform lineup. The Grecale, for example, is built on the same Giorgio platform as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, while the electric Folgore is based on a modified version of this architecture.

By 2030, all Maserati models will be electric, with gasoline engines being phased out. However, the new GranTurismo will retain a gasoline engine. More information on these future models will be available soon, as the Grecale and Grecale Folgore will debut next week.
