Maserati Reveals Its First-Ever Electrified Model With The 325HP Ghibli Hybrid

Since Toyota’s launch of the Prius in the late ‘90s, mass-produced hybrid electric cars have become commonplace in the automotive world, with the majority of manufacturers now offering one or more petrol and proton-powered models. And though they’ve generally been later to the party, exotic car manufacturers have increasingly adopted this powertrain configuration, with the latest elite marque to toss its hat in the hybrid ring being Maserati, which just pulled the cover off of its first-ever hybrid model with the 2021 Ghibli Hybrid.

Replacing the existing diesel Ghibli, the 2021 hybrid-spec packs a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine paired with a 48V hybrid system and an automatic eight-speed transmission that collectively generate 325hp and 322ft-lbs of torque. The Ghibli’s body design’s been slightly tweaked, with a narrower grille, revised headlights, and a dedicated grey livery with blue accents. The inside of the RWD car has also been updated with an all-new Maserati Connect program-enabled 10” touchscreen, and seats with light blue accent stitching that match the exterior highlights and calipers. Unfortunately, the Modena manufacturer won’t be offering its inaugural hybrid model on US shores, though Maserati says its GranTurismo and GranCabrio cars will be sold as electric models in America next year.
