Maserati has announced new details of its electric strategy, confirming that the Quattroporte EV will be delayed until 2028. The flagship of the electric line became the third model that the Italian brand had to postpone. Initially, the Quattroporte Folgore was planned to be launched on the market in early 2025.
Maserati is using the new three-year delay to release several electric models. The first to be released is the GranCabrio Folgore, whose presentation is scheduled for the end of this year. It will take place immediately after the release of the “fuel” analogue.
A “green” version of the MC20 should appear in 2025. A large electric SUV is promised for 2027, presumably an electric version of the Levante. According to Maserati, all of them, including the Quattroporte Folgore, are entirely designed, developed and manufactured in Italy.
At the moment, there are only two electric models in the brand's lineup: GranTurismo Folgore and Grecale Folgore. Both are already available in Europe. Under the leadership of Stellantis, Maserati became the first Italian luxury brand to focus on the development and production of fully electric cars. Since 2023 it has been participating in Formule E.
The brand's electrification initiative is part of Stellantis' larger Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, released on March 1, 2022. In accordance with it, all new Maserati models will be equipped with electric power units. From 2030, the company plans to produce exclusively electric vehicles.
