Get ready for a multitude of Maseratis
The new MC20 supercar is just the beginning. Maserati is set to launch a total of 13 new vehicles over the next four years.
Thanks to a big investment by owner Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (soon to merge with the PSA Group to form Stellantis) Maserati will launch a baker’s dozen of sports cars, sedans and SUVs—all offering internal combustion or electric power.
The twin-turbo V-6 MC20 will be the first to go on sale in 2021, with a new SUV called Grecale which is based on the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, set to follow, according to Autocar. A new GranTurismo and GranCabrio will be unveiled in 2021, with electric versions to follow in 2022. The electric MC20 and Grecale will also debut in 2022. A year later, the currently geriatric Quattroporte will be replaced and a new Levante SUV will also land.
Maserati will make good use of its new Nettuno V-6 across the range, while electron-powered cars won’t lack speed. Maserati is said to be using 800-volt technology as featured in Formula E and Formula 1. This will enable massive performance and seriously rapid charging at up to 300 kW. Maserati will use a three-motor arrangement—one on the front axle and one for each rear wheel—to provide all-wheel drive.
Exciting times ahead for fans of the Trident.
