The 2022 Maserati Levante Hybrid has been revealed ahead of an Australian release towards the end of this year.
Maserati will use hybrid power in the Levante to replace the diesel unit with the brand saying it offers more performance and greater efficiency than the oiler.
The Levante will be the second model in the Italian marque’s range to get the hybrid treatment after the Ghibli sedan.
Like the aforementioned Ghibli, power comes from a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine paired with a 48V mild-hybrid system to produce 246kW of power at 5750rpm and 450Nm of torque at 4000rpm.
Drive is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
According to Maserati, the hybrid car weighs less than the six-cylinder engine equivalents and offers a better weight distribution thanks to the rear positioning of the battery.
Performance-wise, the Levante Hybrid can sprint for 0-100km/h in 6.0 seconds on its way to a top speed of “over 240km/h”.
Hybrid variants of the Levante are differentiated by blue exterior elements including the side air ducts, the brake calipers and the C-pillar logo. The same blue shade is also found throughout the cabin, most notably on the embroidered seams of the seats.
The 2022 Maserati Levante Hybrid will reach Australia late this year, local specs and pricing will be confirmed closer to the launch date.
