Maserati unveils a range of luxury electric cars
Italian luxury car manufacturer Maserati has announced a range of electric cars called Folgore, including the new generation GranTurismo, an electric version of the Levante, the all-new Grecale, and several other luxury sports cars and convertibles.
The company said it will offer electric versions of all its models by 2025. It will also switch to electric vehicle sales only by 2030.
The company’s CEO, David Grasso, noted that the automaker also aims to phase out sales of internal combustion engine vehicles by 2030. But that depends on individual markets and customer requirements.
With this timeline in mind, Maserati claims to be the first luxury brand to complete its electric range by 2025.
Some automakers have added artificial sounds to explain the absence of the internal combustion engine. But Maserati said it would not follow the same path.
The company also confirmed plans to develop Level 3 autonomous driving technology for the Quattroporte. This means that the car is able to drive itself along certain roads without human supervision.
The company’s CEO described the switch to electric as a defining moment for the more than a century-old automaker.
Maserati did not disclose the expected prices of the new electric cars. Their current conventional models range from about $78,000 to more than $200,000.
