The 2024 Maserati Grecale Folgore EV- More Torque With Big Battery
2024 Maserati Grecale Folgore EV – Overview
The new Grecale crossover will be an essential part of Maserati’s growing electric vehicle fleet.
Here are the major highlights:
- The Folgore is Maserati’s electrified version of the Grecale SUV.
- It boasts a 105.0-kWh battery pack and claims to have a torque of up to 590 pound-feet.
- The Folgore will be available in the United States in 2023.
The gas-powered Grecale GT, Modena, and Trofeo versions will arrive in the United States this summer, while the Folgore will follow in the fall of 2023.
While we wait, Maserati has released a few details on the EV.
First, it will be powered by a 105.0-kWh battery pack, with at least two electric motors producing 590 pound-feet of torque.
Maserati hasn’t said if this battery information refers to net capacity or useable capacity, but Grecale Folgore’s battery looks to be on the larger side of its sector.
The battery in the Audi Q4 e-tron, for example, has a capacity of 77.0 kWh. Meanwhile, the Grecale Trofeo’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 produces 457 pound-feet of torque.
Body & Aesthetic
The Folgore looks to have the same body as the gas counterpart at first glance, but a few critical characteristics distinguish it as an electric vehicle.
There are also interesting-looking wheels and Folgore logos on the fenders, as well as a concave grille that is partially closed.
In addition, the car shown is painted in a Rame Folgore copper color only available on the electric Grecale.
Maserati also says it will employ recycled fabrics for the interior of the Folgore, including Econyl, a recycled nylon fiber.
The Grecale Folgore rides on a modified version of the Giorgio platform underlies the standard Grecale and other gas cars like the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
We’re not sure what that means for the electric motors and battery pack’s packing, but Maserati has stated that the Folgore will come standard with all-wheel drive.
Compared to the normal Grecale, which starts at $64,995, expect Maserati to charge a hefty premium for the Folgore.
We wouldn’t be surprised if it started at roughly $75,000, based on what we’ve learned thus far about its specifications.
