Maserati has released the first official image of its groundbreaking first electric car: the second generation Granturismo coupe.
You can see that it retains the sleek silhouette of its predecessor, and especially its name, although it is given little intentionally disturbing angles and heavy camouflage. It looks similar to the long-awaited Alfieri concept, which was previewed in 2016 but hasn’t been released yet.
The photo follows the release of last year’s clip (below), where Maserati previewed the sound of the first electric powertrain to be installed in the 2022 GranTurismo successor.

Although technical details remain unconfirmed, the GranTurismo alternative can be expected to provide faster acceleration than its gasoline-powered predecessor.
Maserati says the powertrain is committed to ensuring that it has “a unique sound, a unique attribute of every Maserati car with a traditional combustion engine.” It’s not yet clear how this will be achieved, but it’s unlikely that the company will artificially reproduce the noise of a V6 or V8 engine.As the tests are being conducted in private facilities and on the surrounding roads, a camouflaged prototype will be released shortly, giving more clues as to what to expect from the new model.The announcement recently announced a mild hybrid of Ghibli and Levante after confirming in September that Maserati would significantly upgrade Turin’s production facility and launch a wave of new models.
