Maserati GranTurismo Folgore takes to the streets

For the first time, a prototype Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Full-Electric coupé has taken to the streets.

For the Rome E-Prix 2022, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares rode the prototype car to the Eternal City’s Formula E circuit.

The new GranTurismo will be the first model in Maserati history to adopt 100% electric solutions. Made at the Mirafiori production hub, it will debut on the market in 2023.  A true icon for the brand, it will offer the characteristic Maserati sound as well as cutting-edge technical solutions, superb performance, comfort and elegance, all typical of the Trident.

Maserati is innovative by nature and is looking ahead into the future.

Formula E was therefore a natural choice for the Trident brand, due to become the first Italian marque to compete in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.  Maserati will also become the first Italian luxury car marque to produce 100% electric models: the electric line-up will be completed by 2025 and the entire Maserati range will be Full-Electric by 2030.
