The All-Electric Maserati Is Coming Soon

Maserati has long been known for their leadership in the automotive field, and their recent announcement proves they're continuing to break boundaries and surprise their loyal fans. It's official, Maserati is currently testing their first all-electric motor, expected to make its debut in 2021 under the hood of the Maserati GranTurismo. Here at Maserati of the Main Line, our enthusiasts are excited to learn more about this groundbreaking news, and we can't wait to share it with you as it breaks. Let's dive into what we do know so far.

What We Know So Far

A teaser video released by Maserati features the sound of their developing all-electric powertrain. It's a truly unmistakable roar, expected to sit within the next-generation Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio. This motor has been developed and tested completely in-house at Maserati, which promises a truly special driving experience when it makes its official debut.

This announcement is big for many reasons, the largest of which suggests this is a pricey invention that's one of the exotic car worlds' first tastes of all-electric high-performance. While drivers are certainly used to the introduction of all-electric and hybrid engines into mid-range luxury lineups, this is simply unprecedented. Known for its heritage of making sportscars for the city streets, Maserati is introducing a new kind of exotic driving into the commercial automotive industry.

The History of the Maserati Models to Gain Electric Powertrains

The new all-electric Maserati powertrain is slated to debut in the Maserati GranTurismo, which was a staple of the lineup and a favorite of many drivers and collectors for its 12-year production run. This model was retired last year, thus making way for the all-electric motor introduction. It's expected that the new powertrain innovations will make for a faster, more powerful, and more capable vehicle that's equipped to handle all types of terrains and features an impressive range.

Maserati states that whatever the final result is, it will be fun to drive, comfortable to drive, and optimize performance. Of course, from what we know of the video, it will also feature that great sound.

When to Expect More Details

This year, drivers interested in the powertrain innovations from Maserati can expect to see the new hybrid Maserati Ghibli in Auto shows. To see the Maserati GranTurismo fit with its respective all-electric motor, though, you'll have to wait for 2021. How do we know? The information from Maserati labels the motor as the MMXXI, which is Latin for 2021. The Maserati GranCabrio, the convertible version of the GranTurismo, is expected to debut in its fully electric form in 2022.

The new electric motor is expected to show at popular auto shows all over the world. Upcoming events include the Shanghai Auto Show, Detroit Auto Show, Turin Auto Show, and New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). Keep your eyes peeled for the news as it debuts at these various events. The world will certainly be watching to see what Maserati has to say.
