Maserati shows off its first electric convertible on Folgore Day

MODENA: Maserati presented on Monday its electric vision at "Folgore Day", an event focused on the Folgore, its all-electric vehicle.

The highlight of the show was the world premiere of the GranCabrio Folgore (Italian for lightning), Maserati's first 100% electric convertible.

It follows the 761hp GranTurismo Folgore in 2022 and the 550hp Grecale Folgore in 2023, completing Maserati's electric lineup.

Folgore Day coincided with Maserati's 110th anniversary and was held in Rimini, 160km south-east of here.


The all-wheel drive GranCabrio Folgore comes with three motors and has a 92.5 kWh battery pack (83 kWh usable), providing a range of up to 447km (WLTP).

The three motors make a total of 560kW/750hp of peak power (610 kW/818hp with MaxBoost), delivering 1,350 Nm of torque. It sprints from 0-100kph in a blazing 2.8s. Top speed is electronically limited to 290kph.

It uses Maserati's in-house 800V Atlantis architecture - developed from scratch - just like its GranTurismo counterpart. Note that the cheapest electric model - the Grecale Folgore - makes do with a 400V setup.


By 2028, the entire Trident range will have been fully electrified, as announced by Maserati in early 2024 when it revealed its long-term strategic vision, including a growth plan aimed at sustainable profitability further into the future, with the focus on the constant evolution of the brand and its products.

The Trident range will continue to be designed, developed, and produced in Italy, with Modena and the historic plant on Viale Ciro Menotti remaining the centre for the company's transition to the new era of mobility.


The event showcased three areas: electric mobility, Maserati's customisation program, and Tridente, an electric luxury motorboat. Exhibits included the Grecale Folgore's chassis, the Folgore charging wallbox, and components of the GranTurismo Folgore.

The Fuoriserie customisation program displayed unique colour and material options for Maserati vehicles, featuring bespoke interior designs and special bodywork paints.

Tridente, a collaboration between Maserati and Vita Power, introduced an all-electric luxury motorboat.


It is a 10.5-metre motorboat, designed to tackle daily cruises on lakes and coasts; it can accommodate up to eight passengers; it boasts a cruising speed of 25 knots, a top speed of 40 knots and DC charges in under an hour.

The dayboat, made of carbon fibre, is crafted by US boatbuilder Hodgdon Yachts.
