Default Maserati Alfieri: electrified supercar set for 2020 production

Maserati Alfieri: electrified supercar set for 2020 production

Italian firm commits to building Tesla rival at historic Modena factory, with first pre-series production models due next year

Maserati will upgrade the production lines at its Modena factory later this year in preparation to start work on its Alfieri electrified supercar.

The Italian firm confirmed its commitment to production at Modena, where it has been based since 1939, following a meeting with local government officials and unions. The site will focus on making “special high-performance, high-technology sports cars”, and work will start on upgrading the facilities there this autumn.

Once the upgrade is complete, Maserati will start pre-series production of a “characteristically Maserati sports car” in the first half of next year. While the firm did not name the Alfieri, it confirmed that it was putting the long-awaited two-seater into production as part of its five-year business plan announced last June.

The Alfieri is based on a concept first shown in 2014. It will be offered in coupé and convertible forms and with a choice of three powertrains, all of which will be electrified. They will include an electric version, which will use a tri-motor, four-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring and 800V battery technology, and a plug-in hybrid.

Speaking last year, Maserati boss Tim Kuniskis said the Alfieri will “offer an unparalleled mix of performance and luxury”, with a 0-62mph time of around 2.0sec and a top speed of more than 186mph. It will also feature active aerodynamics.

Making pre-series production models of the Alfieri in the first half of next year would likely put the model on course to go on sale in mid-2021.

The Alfieri will replace the Granturismo and Grancabrio at the top of Maserati’s range, which the brand is aiming to completely renew by 2022. The plans unveiled last year include new versions of the Quattroporte, Ghibli and Levante, along with a new SUV that will sit below the Levante.
