Italian luxury marque Maserati has announced its plans for future production, electrification and autonomous driving technologies.
Maserati will continue to build cars in Italy with electrified models to be produced in Modena, Cassino and Turin (Mirafiori and Grugliasco).
All new models, including an SUV that will sit beneath the Levante, will adopt hybrid and battery-electric powertrains. A plug-in hybrid version of the Ghibli is set to enter production during 2020 with PHEV variants of the Levante and Quattroporte will follow.
After previously discontinuing the long-serving GranTurismo and GranCabrio, both cars will now be replaced by electrified models at the brand’s facility in Turin as part of an €800 million investment from FCA.
Along with electrified powertrains, Maserati will begin rolling out Level 2 and 3 autonomous driving technology across its fleet in the lead up to 2023.
Level 3 autonomous tech offers the ability to manoeuvre in and out of lanes or bring the vehicle to a safe stop at the side of the road if the driver is unable to take control of the car.
