~New EV~ Maserati, as one of the world's leading car marques, has always followed the prevailing trends in the automotive world, and recently the Italian marque has proven that again by giving a teaser video of its electric-powered sports coupé called the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Full-Electric during the 2022 Monterey Car Week.

The Italian company claimed, that the GrandTurismo Folgore is not just an ordinary electric car. For the reason it has extraordinary power reaching up to 1,200 horsepower, that's twice the power of previous Maserati cars. It could be said that the Italian trident-logoed automaker is seriously working on an electric vehicle (EV) model to be launched in the near future, which reportedly its global premiere soon in the next 2023.

From its appearance, as we can see in general that Maserati's first EV carries a coupé typical design such as another GranTurismo cars of their-owned featured with some details inspired by the previous Maserati MC20, ranging from the more upright look headlights, thin brakelights, to the three-spoke rims that adorn the legs.

In addition, the most prominent right at the door is the Maserati emblem livery with each end of the trident accented in accordance with the colors of the Italian flag (green, white and red) as well as on the front hood but with a larger size. If the design still tends to be the same as the previous cars of their-owned, another main attraction presented by Maserati on the GranTurismo Folgore is its powertrain.

But until now the Italian automaker is still coy to provide details of the powertrain which is said to be capable of producing up to 1,200 horsepower. Well, as the company confirmed, by using such power the GrandTurismo Folgore able to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in 2.6 seconds, the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 200 mph (320 km/h).

Besides that, so far the trident logoed automaker has also mentioned that the batteries are located in the central tunnel for lower ground clearance. When plugged to a fast charger, the battery will replenish enough juice for 100 miles (161 km) of range in 10 minutes. Although there has been no explanation regarding the other specifications of the powertrain in detail, the GranTurismo Folgore is also rumored to be using the inverter technology developed by Maserati for Formula E racing cars.

Meanwhile for the interior, as we can see clearly from the video,  the cabin in 2+2 configuration with seats that are given a touch of a combination of white and blue. The Italian car manufacturer said that the materials used for this car's interior arrangement used a special fabric made of recycled nylon. As for the headroom, it looks quite adequate even though it looks narrow at the back. Unfortunately, Maserati is still reluctant to reveal the dashboard, they will likely reveal it at the official premiere later.
Apart from the planned presence of its first EV,  Maserati also confirmed in its official release at the same time, that promised to offer electric versions of all its production car models by 2025. So after the GrandTurismo Folgore launches in the next 2023, in the same year followed by the electric versions of Grecale crossover and Grancabrio, then the electric variants of the MC20, Quattroporte and Levante in 2025. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MASERATI | ROADANDTRACK | CARSCOOPS | AUTOBLOG ]
