Maserati has announced plans for production, electrification and autonomous driving technologies as part of FCA’s €5bn (US$5.4bn) investment program for Italy. From 2020 onward, all models will be made in Italy and will adopt hybrid and battery electric propulsion systems.
The Maserati Ghibli, produced in Turin, will be the first hybrid electric vehicle for the brand.
The first of the new generation of Maserati will be a sports car. It will be produced in the Modena plant, where major production line upgrades are underway to accommodate its electric powertrain.
Maserati’s sports EV will be followed by a new utility vehicle, which will be built at the Cassino plant. The OEM has invested €800m (US$871m) in the construction of the new production line, scheduled to open at the end of the first quarter of 2020. The first pre-series cars are expected to roll off the line by 2021.
