Alfieri will be Maserati’s first all-electric sports car

The Maserati Alfieri is officially going into production, the Italian ultra-luxury vehicle manufacturer confirmed in June. The sportier electric update on the GranTurismo promises incredible performance and will likely arrive before 2022.

First revealed in 2014, the two-seater coupe will be the first all-electric sports car the brand has come out within its transition to an electric brand. Ditching the V8 engine, the car will be offered as a plug-in hybrid and a bespoke EV.

Maserati’s complete model range is made up of two four-door saloons, two GT sports cars, four engines (a V8, a V6 Twin Turbo, a V8 NA and a turbo Diesel), and two different architectures (AWD & RWD). And there’’s an SUV coming soon.

The all-electric, all-wheel drive will reach 0-62mph in less than two seconds, putting it alongside the proposed Tesla Roadster performance claims. The sportscar combines a bi-turbo V6 powerplant with battery power for reduced CO2 emissions.

The Alfieri, named after the most prominent of the Maserati brothers, is a reminder of the brand’s remarkable racing heritage and a unique tradition in GT cars. According to Lorenzo Ramaciotti, “the mastermind behind the project, the Alfieri is a transition point between 100 glorious years of history and the future that is opening up before us.
