All-Electric Maserati Alfieri Confirmed for 2020. Remember when a rumor that Maserati will launch an electric car came out last summer? Well, now it is not a rumor anymore because the brand’s representative has confirmed that a pure electric version of Alfieri is set to come in 2020, a year after the combustion engine version is launched.
All-electric Maserati Alfieri Specifications
Speaking of the variant with a combustion engine, it will be the first Maserati Alfieri ever produced, and the overall look will be pretty much the same with the concept showed back in 2014. Originally, it was planned to be powered by a V8 engine.
However, due to new emission regulation in Europe and also considering the fuel economy rate, the company finally settled with V6 engine. By the time Alfieri is launched, the average CO2 limit in the region will be reduced to 95 g/km. And, there is no way a V8 engine can comply with that.
Powertrain — Maserati Alfieri EV 2020
It is possible that the V6 engine will be borrowed from Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and three options for power output (410 HP, 450 HP, and 520 HP) will be available.
Both the combustion engine and electric variant of this 2-seat sport car will be offered as coupe and convertible. Furthermore, even though it will follow design cues from the concept, the production size could be made larger. Alfieri is initially planned to be around Porsche 718 Boxster or Cayenne size. But recently, Peter Denton, one of the company executive made a statement that it will come as a bigger model, probably around Jaguar F-Type size.
The bigger size will be advantageous for the all-electric model since it will give room for a larger battery pack. To ensure the car will not be too heavy and affecting the aerodynamic, Maserati Alfieri will follow Alfa Romeo’s step and use lightweight materials such as carbon fibers.
