Although
Maserati
doesn’t have an all-electric vehicle on the market in 2022, two upcoming 2024 Folgore models will be the Italian automaker’s first eco-friendly vehicles.
Getting to experience Maserati’s “excellence through passion” behind the wheel of one of their incredibly luxurious—and incredibly fast—cars isn’t something many people get to experience. But in addition to its small lineup of elite, dramatic, and performance-oriented vehicles, Maserati is now working towards adding some high-powered, all-electric cars to its roster that might give leading EV carmakers like
Tesla
a run for their money. 
Here with a rundown of Maserati’s exclusive EVs scheduled to hit the assembly line in 2024 is the top-rated

Does Maserati have electric cars?

Although the
Ghibli
and the
Levante
are already available as environmentally-friendly hybrids in Europe, Maserati doesn’t include any electric cars in its 2022 U.S. lineup. The luxury automaker may be a little behind when it comes to EV technology, but the brand is now working on a new line of all-electric vehicles under the model name Folgore—Italian for “lightning”—the first of which are scheduled for production in 2024.
Here’s what we know so far about the GranTurismo Folgore and the Grecale Folgore.

2024 Maserati GranTurismo Folgore

We won’t have all the details on the GranTurismo Folgore until sometime next year, but Maserati has been dropping hints about its new EV coupe—you can even check out some photos of the vehicle on the automaker’s
Twitter account
. The car is distinctly Maserati, retaining a familiar body design and grille, enhanced with the brand’s emblematic trident
When it comes to what lies under the hood, the details remain—mostly—a mystery. But we do know that the car is slated to have an all-electric powertrain, which will include an 800-volt battery to help deliver a whopping 1,200 horsepower. Maserati says the car will be able to hit 62 miles per hour in under three seconds, reaching maximum speeds of 186 miles per hour.
The automaker also claims that the two-door EV sports coupe will offer class-leading range and charge times, although they’ve been vague about the details so far. There’s also no official information on price, but Car and Driverestimates the starting cost for the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore at around $100,000.

2024 Maserati Grecale Folgore

Also expected for the 2024 model year is the Grecale Folgore—an all-electric version of Maserati’s new Grecale SUV. Information is sparse on this EV sport utility vehicle, but Francesco Tonon, Maserati’s global head of product planning says that the car “will be a benchmark in terms of range, performance, acceleration, charging time, top speed—everything.” 
What we do know so far about the Grecale (pronounced gre-CAH-leh) Folgore, is that it will have an electric powertrain with a 400-volt battery that will produce 523 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. It will be able to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 3.3 seconds with top speeds predicted to exceed 175 miles per hour. The automaker has also indicated that the Grecale Folgore will come standard with all-wheel drive.
As far as styling goes, it will look similar to its gasoline-powered counterpart but will feature unique wheels and a distinctive grille design to set it apart. Maserati hasn’t offered any specifics on the SUV’s driving range or charge time, but Car and Driverestimates a range of about 300 miles per charge.
Pricing for the base Grecale Folgore is expected to start at around $75,000 and exceed $100,000 for higher trims.

How do Maserati’s electric cars compare to competitors?

As the Italian automaker begins to dip its toes into the electric car market, you might be asking yourself: will Maserati’s electric cars be as good as the competition?
We won’t be able to answer that definitively until Maserati releases more information about its upcoming EVs. But personal preference and brand loyalty might drive your opinion on the matter—especially when it comes to an elite name like Maserati. If you’re already a member of the
Maserati Club
, even Tesla’s most impressive EVs won’t compare to a Folgore.
But if it comes down to speed and performance, then you’ll probably need to wait until Maserati releases full spec information if you want to make your decision based on drivingrange and charging time or power

Driving range and charging time

The most important factor in determining whether or not an electric car is a worthwhile purchase might be its driving range, or how far the vehicle can travel on a full battery. It’s also a good idea to think about the car’s charging time, since cars that take a long time to charge can sometimes be a hassle for their owners.
Maserati hasn’t provided details on the battery life of its all-electric models yet, but here’s a breakdown of some of the brand’s closest EV competitors:

2022 Tesla Model X

Power and Performance

Another thing to consider when buying an EV is performance. Will opting for an eco-friendly electric motor mean sacrificing the power of a gasoline-powered V6 or V8?
Although it’s still too early to be sure exactly where Maserati’s Folgore vehicles will land in terms of speed and power, here’s where they stand when compared to some of the luxury EVs available in 2022:

How to decide if going electric is right for you

Even if you’re a Maserati loyalist who’s stoked for the brand’s new Folgore models, there are a few things you should ask yourself before committing to a plug-in only car:
  • Are there public charging stations in your area? Home charging stations are the best option for topping your battery off at night, but you don’t want to be stuck with no way to power your car if you’re not at home.
  • How much do you drive? Most electric cars have enough range for daily trips around town, but if you have an extra-long commute or regularly go on road trips that exceed 200-300 miles, make sure your mileage falls within your EV’s range.
  • Do you have a garage? A home charging station—usually installed inside a garage—is the most convenient way to keep your battery full. Relying solely on public charging stations might be more of a hassle than it’s worth.
In addition to environmental benefits, some perks of buying an electric Maserati include a federal tax credit of up to $7,500 and incentives from your local power company or state government. EVs also have the advantage of lower operating costs and quieter driving than gasoline-powered cars. On the flip side, owning an EV means you might need to deal with higher repair costs and being unable to drive your car while it’s charging. 
If you want the fuel economy of an EV but dealing with a plug-in battery sounds like a nuisance, the Maserati Grecale GT—available in summer 2022—will include an optional hybrid powertrain.

Maserati’s electric future

The two 2024 Folgore models mark the beginning of Maserati's presence in the electric vehicle market, but the carmaker has even bigger plans for the future. Electric versions of all Maserati vehicles—including the
Quattroporte
,
Levante
, and MC20—will be available by 2025, and the brand intends to convert to an electric-only lineup by 2030.

As charging technology improves and gas prices continue to rise, electric cars might be the future of the automotive industry—just like

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
