  • The subsequent-generation Maserati Quattroporte will spawn an EV variant known as Folgore, as first reported by AutoCar.
  • It’s going to change the present Ghibli and Quattroporte and function Maserati’s sole sedan providing.
  • We anticipate it to reach for the 2025 mannequin 12 months within the U.S.

Right now Maserati has two sedans—the smaller Ghibli and the bigger Quattroporte—however a single mannequin will change the pair to compete within the sedan panorama that features the BMW 5-series, the Audi A6, and the Mercedes E-class. The Quattroporte nameplate (it actually means “4 doorways”) wins out over the Ghibli. Sorry, not sorry, Ghibli.

We are able to hear you saying, “Is a Maserati sedan actually price ready for?” Sure. Nicely, assuming it is performed proper. However after our current publicity to the GranTurismo, we’re assured the brand new Quattroporte will ship. The present automobiles really feel a bit too Fiat-Chrysler, just like the funding was made just for the trident grille and never for distinctive engineering or dynamics. There may be a variety of ardour related to Maserati, and the brand new QP might refire these passions.

Name it round 480 horsepower to begin and 540 horsepower on the prime. The best-priced mannequin, the Folgore, will supply an 800-plus-hp expertise with three electrical motors. Sadly, the V-8 might die out with the present Quattroporte.

The inside can even mimic the GT: numerous leather-based (some quilted), sporty seats, and Uconnect-based infotainment. Maserati will not crib the brand new QP’s switchgear from Dodge this time round—a should for a automotive that may begin round $150,000. Maserati’s SUVs are promoting properly, however we’re glad it stays dedicated to creating automobiles.
