    The next-gen Maserati Quattroporte, which is due in 2024, will be offered only as an EV and will be the only sedan sold by the brand within a streamlined line-up. Adopting Maserati’s Folgore suffix (Italian for ‘lightning’), it will return as a zero-emissions four-door grand tourer. It will sit between the Levante SUV – which will also go electric-only for its second generation in 2025 – and the newly unveiled Granturismo coupé, Maserati’s first foray into the EV world.

    Next-gen Maserati Quattroporte: only sedan in EV line-up

    The next-gen Quattroporte will be the Italian firm's sole sedan in its electrified line-up as production of the smaller Maserati Ghibli will end in 2024. Maserati wants to position the Quattroporte to straddle the luxury and executive sedan segments, despite their wide-reaching price differences.

    This means the brand will look to attract people driving the likes of both the Mercedes-Benz EQE and the BMW i7 who want even more exclusivity.

    This point was backed up by Maserati’s head of global product, Massimo Capaldi, who told our sister publication Autocar UK that he expects Folgore models to attract a new type of customer to the brand. “With the EV, everything is changing. The segments are crossing [over] each other,” he said.

    Next-gen Maserati Quattroporte: underpinnings, powertrain

    The Quattroporte will be based on the new Maserati-built underpinnings of the Granturismo which will be used for all future Folgore models and also the brand’s final combustion-engined cars. It has been designed for optimal weight distribution, with the battery placed in a T-shape low and along the centre of the chassis.

    Power levels are expected to be less than from the 755hp, 1350Nm Granturismo Folgore, which is equipped with a 92.5kWh battery, given that the coupé has sportier credentials.

    The new Quattroporte’s positioning also indicates that it will be significantly more expensive than the current model, especially given that it will be sold in electric form only. When it arrives, the sedan will be accompanied by electric variants of Maserati’s flagship MC20 supercar and entry-level Grecale SUV to complete the brand’s ambitious new line-up.

    Maserati in India

    The Italian carmaker has confirmed that it will launch two models in India this year – the Levante hybrid and the MC20 – with the Grecale SUV likely to follow next year. The carmaker will also be using these launches to expand its network and footprint across India. You can read more about it here
