The Maserati GranTurismo EV is currently tested on the streets of Modena, Italy and it should be unveiled by the end of this year. Now, the corporate has released teaser images of the car, giving us a good idea about its styling and form factor. The pictures suggest that it’ll have a sloping roof line, an updated grille, and Maserati MC20-like headlights.
The new GranTurismo EV prototype that has previewed, although under heavy camouflage, showcased a good few design aspects. The silhouette or body lines generally are quite almost like the first-gen GT, which has now been discontinued. The GT – faithful it’s name may be a GT car quite an out-and-out sportscar and features those typically GT proportions – an extended sleek bonnet, the sweeping coupe-like roofline and therefore the short stubby boot.
In fact, design wise, it’s pretty almost like the Alfieri concept showcased about half a decade ago. One also can spot what appears to be the typically large Maserati grille with the Trident taking centre space, large air intakes – probably to assist cool the batteries – and a muscular bonnet. Also visible despite the camouflage are the new headlamps, almost like those on the MC20 and a group of huge aerodynamic wheels. even as with the present model, the rear wheel arches are pronounced giving it a really traditional look.
There’s no word yet on the official launch date though Maserati states, “Ahead of the launch of the new model, the prototype cars are currently undergoing a period of intensive road AND circuit testing, in various conditions of use, to accumulate vital data for the preparation of the ultimate setup.”
As of the beginning of 2021, Maserati is now a neighborhood of the Stellantis family, parent company Fiat having been a serious a part of the merger between FCA and PSA.
