Maserati says all of its new models will adopt hybrid and battery electric propulsion systems. It also announced that all new Maserati, including the updated current models, will offer a range of autonomous driving capabilities.
The company says it will embark on electrification in 2020 and the Maserati Ghibli, produced in Turin, will be the first hybrid electric propulsion for the brand.
In a press statement the luxury brand also states: ‘The first of the totally new Maserati to appear will be the eagerly anticipated sports car – packed with technology and reminiscent of Maserati’s traditional values. It will be produced in the Modena plant, where major production line upgrades are also underway to accommodate its electric powertrain’.
Next up will be a new Maserati utility vehicle. Maserati says: ‘An investment of approximately €800 million has been earmarked for the construction of the new production line, scheduled to open at the end of the first quarter of 2020. The first pre-series cars are expected to roll off the line by 2021’.
Maserati is part of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Group. FCA has previously announced a €5 billion investment program for Italy.
