Maserati unveils the new GranTurismo

MILAN, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Maserati, the luxury brand of carmaker Stellantis (STLA.MI), unveiled on Monday its new GranTurismo model ahead of an official launch scheduled next year for the brand's first car available in a fully-electric version.
Maserati, which returned to an operating profit last year, has promised fully-electric - or so-called 'folgore' - versions of all its cars by 2025, as part of a wider turnaround plan.
Maserati said in a statement the electric powertrain for the new grandtourer (GT) would be derived from Formula E technology, where the Italian brand will start competing next year.
The new GranTurismo will also be available with a three-litre, six-cylinder internal combustion engine (ICE), in two versions capable of 490 and 500 horse powers, Maserati added.
Both the fully-electric and the ICE versions will have an indicative starting price of around 200,000 euros ($195.000), just below the entry price for a Ferrari (RACE.MI) car.
