Electrified Maserati Levante could launch in 2025

Highlights

  • Maserati last refreshed the Levante in 2016
  • Although the EV’s specs are a mystery, it is rumoured to feature a 745 bhp three-motor system
  • Maserati could utilise a larger battery pack with the Levante, as per initial reports

In a bid to take on high-end EVs from the likes of BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz, luxury car maker Maserati is expected to unveil the second-gen Levante with an electric powertrain. The current iteration of the Maserati Levante was last refreshed in 2016, so it makes sense for the automaker to launch a revamped electric model.

Autocar UK reports that the electric Levante will launch following the MC20 Folgore sometime by 2025, though no specifics are currently available. The publication spoke with the CEO of Maserati, Davide Grasso, who expressed excitement about the electric Levante, adding that it could positively impact other brands in parent company Stellantis’ lineup.

It is learned that the electric Levante will be based on the Giorgio platform developed by Alfa Romeo. Hardware details are a mystery at this point. However, Autocar speculates that the top-end version could feature a tri-motor setup (745 bhp). This is a similar arrangement to the one used on the Maserati Granturismo. The Levante is also expected to pack a larger battery pack, which will reportedly make its way to the Quattroporte Folgore first.

More EVs expected in 2023

Citroën, another Stellantis-owned brand, is also expected to launch its electric crossover soon, including in India. The likes of Mahindra and Tata Motors will showcase new electric cars in the mid-range segment, vastly expanding the available electric car options in the country. Although the Tata Nexon EV currently leads the market, the arrival of additional EVs could threaten the company’s dominance.
