Maserati’s convertible EV caught winter testing

As Maserati moves towards only launching BEVs starting from 2025, the Italian automaker has been caught on camera testing the convertible version of the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore. Likely called the Maserati GranCabrio Folgore when it launches later this year, there aren’t going to be very many secrets with this vehicle. That also explains the light camouflage it’s wearing, since it’s essentially a drop-top version of a car we’ve already seen.

The convertible will sport a soft top that will stow away in a special compartment found behind the seats. Its initial launch will have both gasoline and electrified powertrains, but the electric Folgore is the one we’re interested in and the one you see here. Look for it to offer the same performance specifications as the coupe, with around 750 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque. It will likely be a bit slower than the coupe however, due to the added weight for the convertible. Still, the GranTurismo Folgore does the zero-to-60 mph sprint in 2.7 seconds, and the convertible won’t be too far behind.

As for the battery, it will more than likely use the same 92.5-kWh pack found in the GranTurismo Folgore that is produced at the Marifiori Battery Hub assembly plant in Turin. Maserati did things a bit differently with its battery pack — instead of placing it underneath the seats, they are arranged in a formation around the central tunnel. Look for range to be somewhere around 200 miles.

You can learn more about the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore here, which will give you a good idea of what to expect from the GranCabrio Folgore. Expect more details to come once the all-electric, luxury convertible sports car debuts later this year.
