Maserati plans to launch a battery-electric version for every model in its portfolio by 2025 and phase out the petrol engine by the end of the decade. Lightning.

Maserati will launch three battery-electric models next year: the Granturismo and GranCabrio GT, as well as the Grackle mid-size SUV. By 2025, the manufacturer will release three more electric vehicles: the MC20 and all-electric versions of its Levante SUV and Quattroporte sedan. This means that Maserati will introduce six electric vehicles by 2025.

The Grecelle will be unveiled next week and will eventually join the Maserati Levante, which is currently the only SUV in the automaker’s lineup but accounts for about 60% of the brand’s sales. Catering to growing consumer demand for electric vehicles and luxury SUVs, Grackle could enter this market for Maserati.

Maserati models will continue to be built in Italy. Maserati’s parent company, a joint venture between Fiat-Chrysler and PSA Group called Stelantis, is heavily involved in electrification. The group plans to sell more than 75 battery electric vehicle models in order to sell 5 million electric vehicles worldwide by 2030.

Maserati CEO David Grasso declined to elaborate on whether the new Maserati models would share a platform with other vehicles in the parent company’s portfolio.

“Of course, with Stelantis, we are part of a big family with many opportunities,” said Grasso. “It is clear that Maserati stands for performance and luxury and this will certainly be maintained in the future. As we move towards electrification, you will see a more specialized architecture focused on delivering the best possible range and performance.”

Grasso said Maserati is leaving Formula E to focus on Formula One, an all-electric racing series that helps automakers test their battery technologies. “Now it’s not the start of Formula 1, but never say never.”
