A new Maserati GranTurismo is just around the corner. So much so that a working prototype was 'caught' out on the streets of Modena, in a way that echoes how the Italian carmaker's upcoming Grecale SUV was previewed to the public.
These staged spyshots also show the new GranTurismo exiting the Maserati Innovation Lab as it undergoes a period of intensive road and circuit testing under various driving conditions, which means that the carmaker's engineers are still fine-tuning the end product of what would be the company's first ever EV.
Maserati has confirmed that the GranTurismo will be 'the brand's first car to adopt a 100 per cent electric solution', although petrol powertrains are expected to be offered to meet the demands of more traditional customers. Currently, it offers hybrid variants of the Levante and Ghibli while the MC20 is also expected to go fully electric with a 700-plus bhp tri-motor setup in due time.
Factor in the Grecale's imminent arrival and existing models that have yet to be electrified such as the Quattroporte and we're looking at a very vibrant Maserati catalogue in the years to come.
