The next-generation Maserati GranTurismo has been unveiled. The Italian aristocratic GT is also available in an all-electric model for the first time. The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore (which translates to "Lightning") is an electric vehicle that runs on an 800-volt system. A total of three 300 kW permanent magnet motors propel it (408 hp). Maximum power in "Boost" mode is 610 kW. (829 hp). The claimed acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h is 2.7 seconds, and the top speed is 320 km/h.
The nominal capacity of the GranTurismo Folgore's traction battery is 92.5 kWh, and its dimensions are 4.97 x 2.11 x 1.35 meters. According to the WLTP standard, the range is listed at 450 kilometers. Although public AC charging stations top out at 22 kW, DC outlets can provide up to 300 kW. Within 18 minutes, the battery should be charged from zero to eighty percent capacity.
According to the designers, "the unique configuration and inventive layout of the batteries allow the vehicle height to be limited to 1353 mm without compromising the athletic character of the vehicle." Because of the "T-Bone" configuration of the battery pack, the modules don't have to go where they usually would—under the seats. Maserati claims that moving the batteries to a more central position around the tunnel significantly reduces the vehicle's H-point.
Technically speaking, the new model is the product of an avant-garde endeavor that combines high-performance steel with aluminum and magnesium to create a lightweight but strong structure. Such a multi-material strategy necessitated the creation of novel production procedures that yield industry-leading lightweight construction.
The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore electric car is just slightly different in appearance from its combustion engine brethren. There are also very few distinctions inside. The Maserati Intelligent Assistant multimedia system, the newest infotainment system, a display that summarizes the most important functions in an integrated touchscreen interface, a digital clock, and an optional head-up display are just some of the innovative systems that the manufacturer claims to have included in the series' luxurious interior.
GranTurismo Folgore electric vehicles have a smaller trunk than the combustion engine version (270 vs. 310 liters), directly resulting from the vehicle's electrical components.
The Maserati GranTurismo also provides what it calls an "all-round sound experience," even in the electrified version where the ambient noise is computer-generated. Sonus Faber's high-quality 3D audio system completes the immersive environment. Maserati said they would later announce additional information, such as the starting price and date. @via Maserati.
