For the first time, a prototype version of the upcoming Maserati GranTurismo Folgore has taken to the streets, with Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares piloting the all-electric coupé to the Rome E-Prix. 


The new GranTurismo will be the first model from the Italian luxury automaker to adopt a 100 per cent electric powertrain. Developed at the Maserati’s Mirafiori production hub, the production version of the GranTurismo Folgore is scheduled to make its market debut in 2023. The company says “[the GranTurismo Folgore] will offer the characteristic Maserati sound as well as cutting-edge technical solutions, superb performance, comfort and elegance, all typical of the Trident.”

The brand aims to become the first Italian luxury car marque to offer a line-up comprising only electric vehicles. Maserati says the electric line-up will be completed by 2025 before its entire range will become fully electric by the year 2030.
