Maserati targets 13 new models by 2024

Maserati will again produce its own powertrains after a hiatus of more than 20 years and abandon Ferrari engines.

Maserati, in difficulty for several years, announced Thursday its intention to launch 13 new models by 2024. To relaunch, the Italian luxury car manufacturer wants to produce a “supercar” and electrify its range.

Its new “Supercar”, dubbed the MC20, is a luxury sports car with elytron doors (attached to the front fender and pivoting upwards), the Modena-based manufacturer said on Thursday. The MC20 has a power of 630 horsepower thanks to the new Nettuno engine designed entirely by Maserati.

This twin-turbo V6 accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 2.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of over 325 km / h.

While Maserati has used Ferrari engines in recent years, Nettuno is “Maserati’s return to producing its own powertrains after a hiatus of more than 20 years,” the marque said to the Trident.

The group, which had not presented a new model since the launch of the Levante SUV (urban luxury 4X4) in 2016, plans to completely renew its range.

In addition to the MC20, it will launch 12 new models within four years, including a new SUV called Grecale, and update three existing models. From 2022, Maserati’s first fully electric vehicle, the GranTurismo, will be launched. Maserati took its first steps towards electrification with the Ghibli Hybrid, launched in July.

“All our new models will be electrified”

“All our new models will be electrified,” will use “the most advanced connectivity systems” and a new “combustion engine inspired by Formula 1 technology,” said Davide Grasso, boss of Maserati, brand of the Italian manufacturer. American Fiat Chrysler (FCA).

“With the MC20, we are laying the cornerstone to build the future of Maserati (…) it is the beginning of a new era”, he assured during the presentation with great fanfare on Wednesday evening of this Supercar, whose production will begin at the end of 2020.
