Maserati’s All-New Sports Car Coming In May 2020

Maserati recently wrapped up production of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio, but the company confirmed a new “super sports model” would arrive in 2020.

Now, we’re learning more about the model as the automaker has released a teaser video that suggests the car will be unveiled in May.

While the clip doesn’t show the car, it provides the sound track of the model’s revving engine. This doesn’t tell us much about the sports car, but it confirms the model have a petrol engine. That’s important to note as the upcoming model will become the first Maserati to be offered with an electric powertrain.

The company hasn’t said much about the car, but it was previously known as the Alfieri until Maserati decided to drop that name and start referring to it as the “all-new sports car.” Last year’s capital markets day presentation revealed the model would ride on an aluminum space frame platform and have a plug-in hybrid powertrain with an electric all-wheel drive system.

At the time, the company said the model would accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in around 2 seconds and have a top speed in excess of 186 mph (300 km/h).

However, FCA product plans change more often than the direction of the wind and Maserati’s latest road map doesn’t mention plug-in hybrids – just battery electric vehicles. That being said, an Alfieri EV was in the previous product plan and the company said it would have three electric motors, all-wheel drive and 800V battery technology. The automaker also promised the car would have a long range, quick recharging times and “over 50% more power” than what we can assume is the standard model.

While a lot of questions remain, Maserati’s latest road map showed the all-new sports car would debut next year and be followed by a convertible variant in 2021. A new GranTurismo will also debut in 2021 and be followed by a GranCabrio in 2022.
