Developed and produced in-house by Marelli with state-of-the-art processes in Modugno, Italy

On the return of the iconic Maserati GranTurismo, Marelli will contribute key technologies to this unique coupé, boosting in particular the performance of the Folgore version with the three e-motors equipping the first full-electric Maserati car. The extreme performance of the vehicle – with a total installed power of 1200 HP – are ensured by one of the most compact e-motor solutions on the automotive market, fully developed and produced in-house by Marelli at its Modugno plant (Bari, Italy). Both the product and the related specific and extremely efficient manufacturing process have been developed in a two-year span, a record time to market.

The e-Powertrain system of the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore is based on state-of-the-art 800V Marelli’s electric motors, one placed in the front and two in the rear e-axle, resulting from the company’s extensive know-how in motorsport electrification and flow-down to series production applications. Thanks to the high levels of power density reached (9.2 kW/kg) and the total torque of 1350 Nm, they ensure superb performance as well as driving comfort, with one of the best weight/power ratios on the market.

“We are really proud to provide our technologies for a vehicle that is marking such a memorable moment in the history of an iconic brand as Maserati” said Hannes Prenn, President of Marelli’s Electric Powertrain division.
