Maserati will begin testing an electrical installation for its first electric cars.

Maserati has long hinted at its electric future. This is a new sub-brand called Blue, which can support all-electric versions of the Alfieri sports car, Quattroporte sedan and Levante SUV. However, now the Italian automaker has announced that it has begun testing its first all-electric powertrain to be featured in the new GranTurismo and GranCabrio sports cars.

The company has not yet released specifications for this electric motor, although it is expected to help make the new GranTurismo and GranCabrio much faster than their predecessors with an internal combustion engine, which accelerated to 100 kph in about 4 seconds. The sound of electric vehicles is also being developed at a factory in Modena, Italy.

GranTurismo was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2007 and was available until November 2019. Maserati also recently announced the release of a new two-seater sports car, which was supposed to be the long-awaited Alfieri introduced in 2014, but doubts arise. It is also expected to present a hybrid version of the Ghibli sedan and the second SUV.

And at a recent automobile event in Colorado, Maserati representatives repeatedly mentioned the major product announcement in May 2020, but did not provide any additional details. It is possible that it was just about the new EV platform.
