Maserati speeding toward all-Electric models with introduction of 1,200-hp Fulgore next year

March 22, 2022
The all-electric lineup will be completed by 2025. Five years later, Maserati says, the entire fleet will be full-on and 100-percent electric

Italian luxury carmaker Maserati isn’t used to playing it quiet but has kept much of its future electric vehicle plans under wraps...until recently.

The company’s EV intentions are now public and moving ahead at a predictably fast pace. Maserati unveiled the GranTurismo Fulgore all-electric sports model and promised a complete EV transition by the end of the decade.

The all-electric lineup will be completed by 2025. Five years later, Maserati says, the entire fleet will be full-on and 100-percent electric.

The GranTurismo Fulgore will be the first all-electric vehicle for the Italian firm known for performance and luxury. The 1,200-horsepower motor is being designed to accelerate the car to a top speed of 190 miles per hour and exceed 60 MPH within three seconds of start, according to the release.

The Fulgore model is being made at the Mirafiori plant and will debut next year. An EV version of the new Grecale SUV model will be available by 2023. Fulgore means “bright” and a version of “lightning” in Italian.
