Introducing Maserati's electric evolution

The automotive landscape is undergoing a massive transformation, with electric vehicles (EVs) taking center stage. Leading this charge is Maserati's GranCabrio Folgore, an electrifying addition that follows the acclaimed GranTurismo Folgore. As Europe gears up for a future where all new cars sold must be fully electric by 2035, Maserati is not just meeting but exceeding expectations with their ambitious plan to launch seven electric models in the coming years.

A convertible that captivates

The GranCabrio Folgore is not just any EV; it's a testament to Maserati's dedication to luxury and performance. This electric convertible boasts a length of 16.3 feet, a width of 6.4 feet, and a height of merely 4.5 feet, complemented by a chic fabric roof that retracts in just 14 seconds even while moving at speeds up to 31 mph. With its iconic grille featuring the renowned trident emblem, sculpted hood lines, and impressive 20-inch front/21-inch rear wheels fitted with eco-friendly tires designed to extend range, it is poised to set new benchmarks for style and sustainability.

Luxury meets technology inside

Step inside the GranCabrio Folgore and you'll be greeted by an opulent yet technologically advanced cabin. It features a large 12.3-inch touchscreen display integrated with Google Automotive services, CarPlay, and Android Auto compatibility, paired with an additional 8.8-inch digital panel. The driver's information comes alive on a 12.2-inch digital cluster, supplemented by a head-up display for enhanced convenience. Eco-conscious luxury is evident in every detail, including seats upholstered in Econyl—material crafted from recycled ocean fishing nets.

The storage space may seem modest at 5 cubic feet with the top up and approximately 4 cubic feet when down but remember that this vehicle comfortably accommodates four passengers in sublime luxury.

Astonishing power under the hood

The heart of the GranCabrio Folgore lies in its remarkable powertrain derived from Formula E racing technology. With three electric motors delivering a combined output of 1,200 horsepower, distributed across all four wheels, it promises mind-bending acceleration. While currently limited by battery discharge capacity to provide 830 horsepower in boost mode (and a continuous output of 760 horsepower), these figures are nothing short of phenomenal.

  • Top speed: Estimated at 180 mph
  • Acceleration: 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds

This performance slightly trails behind Model S Plaid's sprint time but keep in mind that this Maserati convertible weighs more due to its roof mechanism and structural reinforcements.

Battery life and charging capabilities fit for royalty

The luxurious EV houses an imposing 92.5 kWh battery pack, with about 83 kWh usable capacity providing up to an estimated 278 miles of range (WLTP). Although less than some competitors due to its considerable weight of about 5,159 pounds,, it offers more than enough range for most driving scenarios.

  • Rapid charging: From 20% to 80%% in just 18 minutes on an 800-volt charger,
  • Five-minute charge provides approximately 62 miles of range,

If using a standard 400-volt charger, expect charging times closer to two hours—a small price for such grandeur.
