The electric GranTurismo.

MILAN: Maserati, the luxury brand of carmaker Stellantis, unveiled on Monday its new GranTurismo model ahead of an official launch scheduled next year for the brand's first car available in a fully-electric version.

Maserati, which returned to an operating profit last year, has promised fully-electric - or so-called "folgor" - versions of all its cars by 2025, as part of a wider turnaround plan.

Maserati said in a statement the electric powertrain for the new grandtourer (GT) would be derived from Formula E technology, where the Italian brand will start competing next year. Its is based on 800-volt technology.

The new coupé is equipped with the V6 Nettuno engine, available in two versions: the Modena, with the 490-hp 3.0-litre V-6 Nettuno Twin Turbo; the high-performance Trofeo version, based on the same engine, but upgraded to a maximum power of 550-hp.

Both the fully-electric and the ICE versions will have an indicative starting price of around €200,000 (RM913,000), just below the entry price for a Ferrari car.

The GranTurismo will be produced at Stellantis' Mirafiori plant in Turin.

Maserati will provide further details of the new car at its official presentation in the first quarter of next year, while sales are expected to start in the second quarter.
