Maserati Grecale: The Electric Version is Coming

Maserati Grecale Folgore

AUTO: It has just been unveiled in Shanghai, and should be in concession before the end of the year. The Maserati Grecale Folgore would thus pull the rug out from under Porsche’s feet.

>Already launched in a 300 to 530 hp petrol version, the excellent Maserati Grecale was also announced from the outset in a 100% electric version, named Folgore (thunderclap, in Italian). The Trident brand has just unveiled it at the Shanghai Motor Show and announced its commercial launch for this year again. This SUV, which competes with both the Porsche Macan and Cayenne, would therefore take a step ahead since the electric Macan is only announced for 2024.

Interestingly enough, the Grecale Folgore is based on an adapted version of the Giorgio platform. The latter had been created for the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio, and was not designed for electrification. We are therefore curious to know how the engineers went about the conversion, what remains of the wonderful dynamics of this reference platform, and if other Stellantis models will benefit from it. In any case, the technical sheet is interesting. The Maserati Grecale Folgore announces more than 500 hp and 800 Nm, a 105 kWh battery, and a 400V architecture for fairly fast recharges. We will probably know more in the months and weeks to come.
