Maserati presented the Grecale, a brand-new small SUV with a variety of engine options, including an all-electric version in 2023. It will be the spearhead of Maserati’s aim to become an all-electric brand by 2030.
The new Grecale crossover will play an important role in Maserati’s expanding EV portfolio. The Folgore moniker (which means “lightning” in Italian) will be used to all Maserati EVs, and Maserati has now introduced the 2024 Grecale Folgore alongside the basic model. The 2023 Grecale GT, Modena, and Trofeo versions will be available in the United States this summer, but the Folgore will not be available until autumn 2023.
Most EV-relevant statistics, including as range, battery capacity, and charging time, are being kept under wraps by Maserati. The electric Grecale will have a 400-volt design, comparable to that of most EVs on the road today.
The Folgore looks to have the same body as the gas counterpart at first glance, but a few critical characteristics distinguish it as the electric model. The concave grille looks to be unique and is partially blocked off, and there are intriguing wheels and Folgore insignia on the fenders. The car shown is completed in a copper hue called Rame Folgore, which is exclusive to the electric Grecale. Maserati also claims that it would employ recycled fabrics for the interior of the Folgore, including a recycled nylon material called Econyl.
The Grecale will be preceded by electric versions of the GranTurismo sports coupe and GranCabriolet convertible. The remainder of the Folgore lineup, including the MC20 Spyder, a sister vehicle to the automaker’s ultra-luxury sports car, the new Quattroporte four-door performance sedan, and an electric version of the automaker’s best-selling Levante SUV, will be added in the following months.
Maserati is expected to charge a hefty premium for the Folgore above the normal Grecale, which begins at $64,995. I wouldn’t be shocked if it starts around $75,000 based on what I’ve learned thus far about its specs.
