Maserati GranTurismo Folgore, electric at 320 km/h

As the brand’s first all-electric model, the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore is highly anticipated by car enthusiasts.

 

The first electric car from the luxury automaker, Maserati, was recently spotted at the Monterey Car Week, which brings together all the car enthusiasts and collectors in California. On this occasion, the Italian manufacturer made a video with the American comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, in which he reveals some secrets of the sports car.

 

The comedian is accompanied by the head of design, Klaus Busse, and the brand’s communications manager, Maria Conti. At the beginning of the video, they emphasize the importance of having managed to keep the GranTurismo in shape thanks to the battery that can be recharged at fast charging stations (capable of recovering 100 km of autonomy in 5 minutes).

 

The two experts also point out that the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h. In terms of design, Maserati’s electric SUV is based on the Grecale’s codes, with elegant aerodynamics that are the source of the all-electric range’s performance.

Maserati is not only focusing on saving the environment by switching to electric power. According to Klaus Busse, the brand is using the latest design technologies, coupled with traditional Italian design creativity, to produce this new model. For example, the seats are made from Econyl, a material obtained from recycled fishing nets recovered from the sea.

Folgore, which translates to “lightning“, clearly announces the ambition of Maserati’s 100% electric vehicle range: to deliver the best performance and fuel the passion for sports cars. In January, Maserati had announced that it would enter Formula E to further develop its technology, as motorsport is a natural testing ground for vehicle technology.

 

By 2030, the entire Maserati lineup will be Folgore and by 2025, all of their cars will have a Folgore option. The Gran Turismo Folgore model, meanwhile, will be unveiled to the public in 2023.
