During last year’s Capital Markets Day presentation, Maserati announced plans to launch an assortment of new and redesigned models by the end of 2022.
Among the highlights were new versions of the Levante and Quattroporte as well as an all-new crossover. The company also promised to launch the Alfieri, something it had been saying since 2014.
Fast forward to today and the automaker has unveiled an updated roadmap during FCA’s second quarter earnings report. A lot has changed since the previous presentation and the company’s latest roadmap says an all-new sports car will be introduced next year.
While it’s natural to assume this is the Alfieri, the company doesn’t mention it by name and there has been speculation that the Alfieri is effectively dead. That isn’t necessarily bad news, as reports have suggested the new model has a different design that is “even more beautiful” than the Alfieri concept.
2020 will also see the introduction of facelifted versions of the Levante, Ghibli and Quattroporte. There’s no word on what to expect, but the changes shouldn’t be too drastic as proper redesigns are on the horizon.
One year later, Maserati will launch their so-called D-UV. It will be a mid-sized crossover that slots beneath the Levante and is offered with an electric powertrain.
2021 will also see the introduction of a convertible version of Maserati’s white-space sports car. More interestingly, the company will also launch a new GranTurismo. That’s notable as company’s 2018 plan called for the GranTurismo and GranCabrio to be replaced by the Alfieri.
In 2022, the company will introduce the new GranCabrio and redesigned Quattroporte. Both will be available with an electric powertrain.
This being FCA, there had to be a delay of some kind. This time it occurs to the next-generation Levante which has been pushed back to 2023.
Maserati didn’t go into too many specifics, but they confirmed every one of their all-new models will be offered with an electric powertrain. That’s a slight change as the D-UV was originally slated to skip the BEV option and instead be offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
