Maserati Quattroporte To Be Reinvented As Electric Four-Door GT

Rumor / Comments

A new body shape and a fully electric drivetrain aim to make the historic moniker a more competitive product.

With the arrival of the all-new Maserati Gran Turismo, the Italian marque is now dropping details on what strategy it will be taking with its upcoming products. The Maserati Quattroporte is one moniker that has stood the test of time in its stable. We have learned that its lineage is likely to remain, but it will evolve into a reasonably different product.

According to information sourced from Autocar, Maserati's head of global product, Massimo Capaldi, divulged that the executive sedan will evolve into an electric-only four-door grand tourer akin to the Mercedes-AMG GT Four-Door. With this change, it will also be adopting the brand's Folgore badge, which has been attached to all of its new electrified products.

Considering that the brand has decided to scrap its smaller Ghibli product line, this will make the Quattroporte Maserati's sole sedan yet again, with the Levante and Grecale SUVs, destined to go all-electric by 2025, joining it as alternative people-mover options. Capaldi added that there is an expectation for the Folgore products to introduce a new breed of Maserati buyers to the stable.

In reference to the new body style strategy, he adds, "With the EV, everything is changing. The segments are crossing [over] each other." It is also understood that the new Quattroporte will adopt the new Gran Turismo's underpinnings together with all future product lines in a bid to minimize costs.

This new layout is beneficial for weight distribution as the T-shape battery is stretched along the center of the chassis. As for power, we can expect the upcoming model's output to be as lower than the 735 horsepower and 997 lb-ft of torque figure delivered by the Gran Turismo Folgore. It is also highly likely to cost less.

It looks like Stellantis is taking an aggressive approach to reinventing the historic Italian brand, including a strategy to get it listed on a public exchange and aspirations to make a return to the world of motorsport. With the imminent arrival of this new model, together with its fully-fledged supercar, a more accessible crossover, and a long-overdue refreshed hallmark GT, fans across the world will be watching in curiosity to see whether Maserati can finally return to its former glory.
