Maserati Introduces the GranCabrio Folgore

Maserati’s latest offering, the GranCabrio Folgore, brings together the thrill of high-performance driving with the serene experience of open-air motoring. It swaps its traditional V6 engine for three electric motors, delivering a combined output of 761hp and 1,350Nm of torque.

Impressive Range and Weight Considerations:
The GranCabrio Folgore boasts a claimed range of up to 447km on a single charge, thanks to its 83kWh battery. While it’s about 90kg heavier than its petrol counterpart, Maserati has reinforced its structure to maintain ride quality and performance standards.

Design and Comfort Features:
Visually, the Folgore showcases a redesigned grille, maintaining Maserati’s iconic styling cues while embracing electric propulsion. The convertible retains its folding fabric roof, operable at speeds up to 50kph, and includes features like a neck-warming system and an optional wind deflector for enhanced comfort.

Performance and Customer Focus:
Despite its added weight, the GranCabrio Folgore accelerates from 0-100kph in just 2.8 seconds, emphasizing a balance between performance and luxury. Maserati’s engineering chief highlights that the convertible prioritizes comfort over outright agility, catering to a distinct customer base seeking a refined driving experience.

Market Availability and Future Plans:
While details about its availability in India are yet to be disclosed, Maserati’s lineup continues to expand with electrified options like the Grecale SUV and the upcoming GranTurismo in both petrol and electric variants. These additions align with the brand’s commitment to innovation and luxury in the evolving automotive landscape.
