The new Ghibli Hybrid is the first hybrid vehicle in the history of Maserati. The model is developed by Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena. The vehicle will be produced at the Avvocato Giovanni Agnelli Plant (AGAP) in Grugliasco (Turin) starting this fall.
The new Ghibli Hybrid is one of the most aggressive projects for Maserati. The idea to introduce hybrid technology on the Ghibli is not an accident. This model, with over 100,000 units produced since its launch in 2013, perfectly embodies the DNA of the Modena manufacturer.
The Ghibli Hybrid will keep the unmistakable sound that has always identified every Maserati. The arrival of the new Ghibli Hybrid thus expands the Maserati range, which is now even more competitive and meets market requirements.
In perfect harmony with its DNA, Maserati has chosen a hybrid solution focused mainly on improving performance. The innovative engine combines an internal combustion engine (4-cylinder, turbo, 2.0-liter displacement) with a 48-volt alternator. Plus a supercharger (e-Booster), supported by a battery mounted on the back of the car.
The performance data of the new Maserati Ghibli Hybrid is very powerful: maximum power of 330 hp and the torque of 450 Nm delivered from just 1,500 rpm. The maximum speed is 255 km / h and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.7 seconds.
Ghibli Hybrid also marks the beginning of the new Maserati Connect program and the Maserati Intelligent Assistant multimedia system based on digital inputs from Android Automotive, software that offers an innovative user experience, completely customizable according to the driver's personal preferences.
The Maserati's first electric cars will be the new Maserati GranTurismo and Maserati GranCabrio, scheduled for 2021.
