The electric version of the Maserati MC20 supercar will receive three engines at once. Autoblog portal, it will acquire its own name Folgore, which will eventually become a separate sub-brand for electric vehicles.

The electric supercar will have one motor on the front axle and two motors at the rear. The motors will be combined into a single block the size of a petrol four, but they will be able to operate independently: this will allow Maserati specialists to implement a thrust vector control system on the supercar.

When creating an electric supercar, the main focus is on achieving maximum autonomy. During the debut of the petrol MC20, it was announced that the electric version would be able to cover a distance of up to 380 km on a single charge.

It is noted that the new modification of the coupe will be significantly more efficient than the petrol version, which has a 630-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 turbo engine. The increase in performance should compensate for the increase in mass thanks to the battery pack that will sit between the motor shield and the motors. A similar MC20 will be able to accelerate to the first 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds – 0.1 seconds faster than the already shown option.

The electric modification will also receive external differences – it will lose the traditional grille and many air intakes. The Maserati MC20 Folgore should debut no earlier than 2020.

In addition, the date of the world debut of the new Maserati Grecale was recently announced. It should be emphasized that the new model of the Italian brand will share the platform with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. In turn, the novelty is currently being actively tested.
