Second-gen Maserati GranTurismo India bound next year
The all-electric Folgore variant will also be launched in India next year.
Maserati is set to launch the second-gen Maserati GranTurismo and its all-electric Folgore variant in India next year. The Italian marque will bring the GranTurismo between April-June 2024, and the GranTurismo Folgore in the October-December period.

Revealed in October last year, the all-new Maserati GranTurismo looks a lot like its predecessor – from the sleek, long bonnet to the cab-back stance – despite sitting on a new platform. A 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine has been mounted just behind the front axle, and produces 490hp and 600Nm in the Modena trim, and 550hp and 650Nm in the performance-oriented Trofeo trim. All-wheel drive will be standard on both, helping the GranTurismo Modena sprint to 100kph in 3.9 seconds, while the Trofeo does it in 3.5 seconds.

Maserati is yet to reveal which trim of the GranTurismo will be available here. In international markets, the 2+2 grand tourer is offered in six colours: Bianco (white), Grigio Maratea (grey), Grigio Maratea Matte (matte grey), Nero Ribelle (metallic black) and two shades of blue – Blu Emozione and Blu Nobile. The layout of the new GrandTurismo’s cabin is quite similar to what we’ve seen in the Grecale SUV.
There’s a lack of info on how Maserati will price the GranTurismo, but expect it to be up there with the likes of the Bentley Continental GT, which costs upwards of Rs 3 crore, ex-showroom.
New Maserati GranTurismo Folgore powertrain
The all-electric GranTurismo Folgore gets a 92.5kWh (83kWh usable) T-shaped battery that sends power to three motors (one on the front axle and two at the rear). Total output is 760hp, which helps this 2,260kg EV accelerate from 0-100kph in a scant 2.7 seconds.

There are a few subtle design details that differentiate the GranTurismo Folgore EV from its petrol-powered counterpart – the lack of exhaust pipes, the use of blacked-out bits all around and the badges getting a dark copper finish. The interior is also more or less identical.
