Maserati, the Italian luxury car manufacturer has finally confirmed the plans to make electric cars. Of course, some new petroleum-based luxury offerings will still be there.
The new cars will be built at the plants in Modena, Cassino, and Turin (Mirafiori and Grugliasco). So, everything will continue to be manufactured in Italy – including the new lineup of electric cars.
This announcement follows after the 5 million euro investment program of their parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) for electric cars.
Unlike some other manufacturers, Maserati plans to work on an electric sports car, SUV, and a GT. It is an incredibly ambitious decision to go forward with.
Maserati mentions that the new cars will retain the original driving dynamics of its petroleum-powered car but will rely on super-efficient electric batteries to go with. Even though the company has not released the official name for the car, the announcement hints that the information will be shared soon enough.
The key point of the announcement is that it includes an SUV and a hybrid GT car – this will be interesting to watch out for.
In addition to the name, we also have to wait for any technical details on the new lineup. However, it is known that the sports car will be available from 2020 and the SUVs will arrive in 2021.
And, the flagship vehicles of Maserati – GranTurismo, and GranCabrio is going to get completely electrified in an attempt to re-invent electric cars. The EV car may launch in 2020-2023. It is worth waiting for a luxury car manufacturer to build something that is powered by electricity.
