The Maserati Alfieri Concept shown at the Geneva motor show 2014 we anticipate the production model.
After the launch of the Levante, the first SUV of Maserati, the brand of the trident is going ahead with a revolutionary plan to renew the range of models and venture into niche markets that are unknown to them. A few months ago we did echo of the first information pointing to the launch of the first electric Maserati. Well, according to our colleagues of coach, the brand has confirmed this fact. The first Maserati electric will hit the market in the year 2020.
¿And what will be the model to debut this type of mechanics? For neither more nor less than the expected Maserati Alfieri. Anticipated by a concept of the same name at the Geneva motor show 2014, the Alfieri production has been delayed and although some reports pointed to a release in this year, finally, or so it has been and Maserati decided to delay it.
The Maserati Alfieri will not be solely an electric vehicle, as will also be marketed with a combustion engine. If the Alfieri Concept was introduced with a V8 engine, the model will arrive at dealers will opt for a block V6 Twin-Turbo because that will allow you to adapt more easily to the standards of current emissions and those that will come in the next few years. In addition to the engine V6 Twin-Turbo will allow standardization of consumption habits that are more reduced.
The Maserati Alfieri will become the first electric vehicle of the brand trident.
If everything goes according to plan, the unveiling of the Maserati Alfieri production will take place in the year 2019. In a first time debut with the mechanics of internal combustion and, a year later, it will be time to get to know the Maserati Alfieri electric. The fact that the Alfieri is going to offer these two mechanics are so different, it ratifies the idea that it also will premiere a new platform.
few months Ago, the Giulio Pastore, General Manager Maserati Europe, said that they still had to make decisions concerning the architecture and the design that will be the Maserati Alfieri. A platform able to adapt to combustion engines and electric will help to reduce the costs of production and development. In addition to this first electric, Maserati also confirmed some time ago that they are developing a new system plug-in hybrid that will debut in the Levant.
on the other hand, and since we are talking about future releases of Maserati, their plans for the next few years to secure that before the arrival of the Alfieri, the Italian company will introduce the replacement for the current Maserati GranTurismo and Maserati GranCabrio. Although there will be a line of conservative in terms of design changes, will be more efficient, technological, and compact.
