Next Maserati GranTurismo Will Gain Electric Powertrain
Maserati is taking the next step to embrace electrification as it begins testing its first 100% electric powertrain, which has been developed at its new lab in Modena.
According to the company, the powertrain will be equipped in future Maserati models, starting with the new GranTurismo and GranCabrio.
The cars will have “a distinctive signature sound” and you can listen to it in the short clip below. Sounds promising.
Here’s the press release with more information:
Implementing its plans for the electrification of its range, as previously announced, Maserati has started the testing phase of its new full electric propulsion systems that will equip the future models of the Brand.
Some experimental vehicles have now been built equipped with the new innovative powertrain, 100% electric with 100% Maserati technology, developed at the new Innovation Lab in Modena.
During this experimental phase, the sound that will characterise the electric engine will also be developed.
The next full electric models will have a distinctive signature sound, already a unique attribute of all Maserati cars equipped with traditional combustion engines. Customers will therefore benefit from 100% electric propulsion vehicles that will combine driving pleasure, comfort and performance with a unique and unmistakable sound.
The new Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio will be the Brand’s first cars to adopt 100% electric solutions and will be built at the Turin production hub.
