the brand’s electrical overhaul has begun

The Stellantis group will use one of its factories in Turin to create an electrical hub, which will be used in particular for the overhaul of Maserati!

At the house of Stellantis, major work is continuing to reorganize the group’s factories. This time, we are talking about a great Electric “hub” Italian which will see the light of day for Fiat and the Maserati ! The redesign of the Trident brand is taking shape slowly but surely …

An Italian electric “hub”

The global group is making changes especially in Italy with major changes planned by now 2024. Thus, in the factory of Mirafiori located around Turin, a real future electric “hub” will be created within three years.

In this factory, this is the news Fiat 500 electric which are already manufactured as well as Maserati Levante. In this reorganization, all the employees of the Grugliasco will soon be transferred to Mirafiori to strengthen the workforce. Ditto for the production of Ghibli as well as Quattroporte !

The primary objective is therefore to create a stable and definitive team for Maserati’s electric transition. Within a few years, the Italian firm will gradually become a 100% electric brand with, initially, the arrival of the replacement for the GranTurismo, that will do without combustion engine.

And more of the duo GranTurismo/GranCabrio, a new Electric SUV will also be produced by Maserati in the near future.

Still no electric in 2021 for Maserati

This desire to create a unit entirely dedicated to electricity can be understood. For the moment, the Italian firm has not yet produced an electric model, nor even released a variant without a combustion engine. However, to see if the future Grecale will indeed be entitled to a 100% electric version as the builder suggests. More information about it will fall on November 16 for its official presentation.

At the same time, Maserati confirmed that the latest arrival, the Maserati MC20, will be offered in an electrified version in the near future. It is currently powered by a motor V6 3,0 litres bi-turbo which develops no less than 630 horsepower !

As it concerns hybridization, the Italian brand is clearly lagging behind the competition. For the moment, only two models are offered in the catalog: the Ghibli hybrid released in 2020 and Levante hybrid This year. But the latter two only offer micro-hybridization, not yet a real plug-in hybrid engine.
