The new Maserati GranTurismo will appear in 2022May 6, 2020
The serial version of the Alfieri concept, which existed many years ago, has not yet been released, but its style is likely to find its way to the new GranTurismo.
The stunning Maserati Alfieri concept car is no longer part of the brand’s plans – at least not with that name. But the Italian automaker says the new generation GranTurismo will soon replace the current model, which was discontinued after the 2019 model year. Moreover, a Maserati spokesman confirmed that the GranCabrio name will be restored for the convertible version. The novelty will be on the conveyor already in 2022, and its open version – in a year. GranTurismo will enter the Maserati lineup with the new mid-engined supercar, the MC20.
GranTurismo and GranCabrio are expected to launch a new wave of electrification of the legendary brand with a 105-year history. Maserati said that the new car will be the first Maserati to use an electric power plant, and that it will be manufactured in the Italian city of Turin. At the moment, it is unclear whether the GranTurismo and GranCabrio will be offered exclusively as electric vehicles or whether only a gasoline or hybrid power plant with a plug-in module will be available.
No matter which direction Maserati decides to step with the engine, we hope that the magnificent Alfieri concept car will nevertheless serve as inspiration for the design of the new models. Maserati is expected to adhere to its originally scheduled launch dates, but recent events related to the global coronavirus pandemic may cause delays.
