Maserati showcased the first ever hybrid Ghibli model.

The hybrid powertrain consists of a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine, an electric turbocharger, a 48-volt starter-generator and a rear battery. The total capacity of the plant is 330 hp. and 450 Nm of torque. The Ghibli can accelerate to 100 km / h in 5.7 seconds and accelerate to a maximum of 255 km / h.

Compared to the V6 diesel engine, the new hybrid’s emissions have dropped by 25%, in particular the weight has been reduced by about 80 kg. Together with the new hybrid unit, there is a rear-wheel drive system and an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.

To emphasize the environmental friendliness of the new product, Maserati has added blue accents to the side air vents, brake calipers and a logo on the C-pillar. The Italian brand has also equipped the hybrid sedan with updated headlights and a radiator grill, as well as new taillights with signature lighting.

As for the interior of the Ghibli Hybrid, there is a new infotainment system with a 10.1-inch display and a fully digital instrument cluster. In addition, the novelty will be able to receive updates “over the air” thanks to the Maserati Connect system.

It should be emphasized that the hybrid Ghibli has launched Maserati’s electrification plan, which will continue next year with the next generation of electric versions of the Grantismo and GranCabrio.
