The new Grecale crossover will be a key part of Maserati's expanded EV lineup. All Maserati EVs will wear the name Folgore (that means "lightning" in Italian), and Maserati has now revealed the Grecale Folgore in 2024 alongside the standard model. The gas-powered Grecale GT, Modena and Trofeo models are scheduled to arrive this summer, while the Folgore will not reach the US until fall 2023.
As we wait, Maserati has provided some juicy specs for the EV. It will have a battery pack of 105.0 kWh, and its electric motors, we assume there will be at least two, will produce 590 pound torque. Maserati has not yet confirmed whether this battery information represents net capacity or usable capacity, but either way, the Grecale Folgore pack is shaping up to be at the larger end of its segment. The Audi Q4 e-tron's battery, for instance, offers 77.0-kWh of usable energy. The torque figure, meanwhile, tops the Grecale Trofeo's twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6, which has 457 pound-feet.
Visually, the Folgore seems to have the same body as the gas model, but some key details identify it as the electric model. The concave grille appears different and is partially closed, and there are also interesting wheels and Folgore badges on the fenders. The vehicle is finished in a copper color called Rame Folgore, which is exclusive to the electric Grecale. Maserati also says it will use recycled fabrics for the interior of the Folgore, including a recycled nylon material called Econyl.
Rather than riding on one of Stellanti's new electric platforms, the Grecale Folgore uses a changed version of the Giorgio platform that underpins the standard Grecale and other gas models, such as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. We are not sure what this will mean for the packaging of electric motors and battery packs, but Maserati confirmed the Folgore will offer all-wheel drive as standard.
Look for Maserati to charge a significant price premium for the Folgore compared to the standard Grecale, which starts at $64,995. Given what we've heard so far about its specs, we wouldn't be surprised to see it start at around $75,000.
