Maserati Grecale 2024: all-electric Folgore midsize SUV slated for Australia


With 410kW on tap from its dual-motor system, the Grecale Folgore can hit 100km/h in 4.1-seconds

Maserati has unveiled the all-electric Grecale Folgore at the 2023 Shanghai Motor Show. 

The midsize SUV makes use of the ‘Folgore’ naming convention that Maserati uses for its battery-powered vehicles, first seen on the GranTurismo Folgore that was unveiled late last year.

As an all-electric, high-performance midsize SUV, Maserati’s Grecale Folgore will likely face competition from the likes of the Tesla Model Y, Volvo C40 Recharge, and the upcoming Polestar 4

Considering that the petrol and hybrid-powered Grecale variants were confirmed for the local market last year, it makes sense that Maserati Australia is looking to bring the all-electric Folgore variant to the country. 

A spokesperson for the brand said that they are “looking at mid-to-late 2024 at this stage”, with “final pricing and specification still to be confirmed.”

As standard, the Grecale gets an 205kW electric motor on each axle. As is the case with most high-performance EVs, this creates an all-wheel drive system that maximises traction in more conditions. 

Combined, this dual-motor system is good for a hefty 410kW and 820Nm of torque. As for performance, this allows it to hit 100km/h in 4.1-seconds before topping out at 220km/h. 

Despite this glut of power on tap, 4.1-seconds isn’t particularly quick by modern standards, and this is because the Grecale Folgore is a hefty machine.

According to the release, Maserati quotes the homologated weight at 2450kg, which is on par with a V6-powered Ford Everest 4WD wagon 

A good majority of this weight will be made up by the 105kWh (usable) battery that powers the Grecale, which provides a driving range of up to 500km (WLTP). 

As for charging, the maximum AC rate is 22kW, and 150kW for DC. When hooked up to a fast charger, Maserati says the Grecale Folgore can charge from 20 to 80 per cent in 29 minutes.

Grecale EV retains similar aesthetic

Despite ditching internal combustion entirely, Maserati didn’t feel the need to differentiate the looks of the Folgore from its petrol and hybrid-powered counterparts. 

The slatted grille is inspired by the range-topping Trofeo variant, and the copper brake calipers subtly hint at the Folgore’s electric powertrain.

Globally, buyers will be offered 19, 20, or 21-inch aero wheels on this Folgore, which are reportedly inspired by the trident badge.

On the inside, it’s a similar affair again to the petrol variant with a pair of 12.3-inch displays handling the digital cluster, and the infotainment system. The latter offers wireless Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and satellite navigation. 

There’s also an 8.8-inch “comfort display located beneath the infotainment screen which houses the climate controls.
