Maserati has confirmed more details of the electrification of its line-up, set to begin later this year with the launch of a hybridised version of the Ghibli saloon.
The BMW 530e rival is expected to be powered by a new plug-in petrol-electric system offering a useable all-electric range and ultra-low CO2 figures. It will also feature Level 2 autonomous driving capability, with Maserati intending to progress to 'hands-off' Level 3 features in the near future.
The Ghibli will be followed in 2021 by the second-generation version of the Granturismo and Grancabrio, which will feature the brand's first fully electric powertrain. It was previewed last month in a brief video, and is expected to begin on-road testing in the coming months. A spokesperson confirmed to Autocar that these cars will also be available with petrol engines, but it remains unclear whether they will use an all-new motor or an evolution of the outgoing car's 4.7-litre V8.
