Although Maserati has put off releasing their electric Quattroporte until 2028, this in no way halts their plans to transition to an all-electric vehicle. Fortunately, the Italian carmaker has promised to release several intriguing electric vehicles (EVs) before releasing its electric sedan.
An all-electric Maserati GranCabrio Folgore, a topless relative of the already-available GranTurismo Folgore, is the first to hit the market. Before launching what was supposed to be the first electric convertible in the world, the company was patiently working out all the kinks. Unfortunately, MG Cyberster has already seized the crown, and even the tiny Fiat 500e has staked a claim. Even though they’re all targeting different demographics of buyers.
Maserati GranCabrio Folgore Details
Just like the GranTurismo, the Maserati GranCabrio Folgore will have a powertrain that sends 761 horsepower to all four wheels and is backed by an 800V and 92.5 kWh battery pack that is ingeniously hidden behind the seats. You can expect the same top speed of 199 mph and a range of 283 miles from the topless version. Aside from the absence of a hardtop, we do not anticipate many changes between the two versions.
Although Maserati originally planned to reveal the convertible version by year’s end, they delayed the unveiling by a few months. Things are moving along smoothly, and a third electric Maserati should be unveiled this year.
Also, there’s more. Efforts to electrify the MC20 aren’t going away anytime soon, either. In 2025, Maserati plans to unveil an electric version of its supercar. Not only that, Maserati GranCabrio Folgore will have a bigger sibling by the year 2027. The reason the Quattroporte has been shelved until 2028 is because of this jam-packed schedule.
